This Shadchan wasn’t your typical matchmaker, but thanks to his persistence and some divine providence, a young Jewish couple was brought together. Meet Terry, your friendly neighborhood UPS delivery guy.
Anyone who works or lives on Eastern Parkway or Union Street in Crown Heights, and receives packages from UPS, knows Terry. His extra friendly and kind demeanor is hard to miss.
Since he is constantly dropping by homes and businesses in the neighborhood and gets to know quite a few single young men and women, Terry is known to often try and make ‘shidduchim.’
After dozens of different suggestions, this time it actually worked out!
After years of making deliveries to the Eastern Parkway home of the Goldin family, which is just one block over from where Mrs. Regina Simon works, Terry began to suggest that Mrs. Simon’s daughter Chana ‘go out’ with the Goldins’ son Zevi.
“At first everyone just dismissed it, thinking it was cute that he was suggesting names,” the Chosson Zevi Goldin told CrownHeights.info. Later, an uncle of the Kallah went through the motions and set them up on a Shidduch date, “But it was Terry who was the Shadchan” Zevi added.
Last week the Goldin and Simon families celebrated the L’chaim of the new couple, and Terry’s presence was once again hard to miss.
