A Groundbreaking New Book: ‘Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Shidduchim’

Guidance, chizuk and stories from Rav Chaim,
the Chazon Ish, the Steipler, Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach and Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman.

(Courtesy of ArtScroll) “When I was 17 years old, my parents and my uncle the Chazon Ish worked very hard to find a shidduch for me. Yet, shidduch after shidduch did not come to be… Now, consider this. When the search for my zivug began, my future wife, Batsheva, was not yet bas mitzvah! She was certainly not ready to begin shidduchim, but since she was my ‘bashert,’ Hashem caused those who were suggested for me to not want to proceed…”—Heard from Rav Chaim Kanievsky, shlita

Shidduchim. Whether we are “in the parsha” ourselves, or it is our children, grandchildren, friends or neighbors, we all know people searching for their zivug, awaiting the “Krias Yam Suf” that will bring them to their bashert. In “Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Shidduchim,” a new, unique sefer by Rabbi Naftali Weinberger, we look at the topic of shidduchim through the wise and far-seeing eyes of some of our greatest sages.

What are the most important traits to look for in a shidduch? What is the proper balance between hishtadlus and emunah? How important is physical appearance? Financial and health issues, the role and efficacy of segulos, the power of tefillah: Through Torah insights of our gedolim, as well as dozens of stories, we gain a greater understanding of the process of shidduchim and receive badly needed chizuk and guidance as we face today’s challenges. “Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Shidduchim” also includes 250 teshuvos of Rav Chaim, in their original Hebrew with English-language summaries, answering shailos he’d received about shidduchim.

Hakadosh Baruch Hu, the Gemara tells us, spends His time making shidduchim. But we have to do our part—and this sefer will guide us to do it correctly so we can together celebrate the joy of creating beautiful new Jewish families.
