Shidduch Center Member Benefits 
Priority access to our team of dedicated shadchanim
  • Shidduch Center members will receive priority standing with our team of dedicated Shadchanim, who will be expending extra time and effort on behalf of our members.
  • When a Shidduch Center member is logged into the site with their User Name and password, and sends an email to any of our dedicated shadchanim through the Shidduch Center website, using the Shidduch Center Dedicated Shadchanim dropdown item from the Member Access nav bar menu a response from our shadchanim is guaranteed with 3 working days.
  • Once you join as a member, please make sure you are logged into the site before sending an email to our shadchanim through the site, and that you are sending the email from the member access portal area, in order to be guaranteed a response.
  • For those who choose not to sign-up as full members, please understand that our shadchanim receive numerous emails every day, both through our site and directly to their email address. While our shadchanim do their utmost to respond to incoming correspondence, it is simply not feasible to respond to each email they receive, and we can only provide a guarantee of response to those who have joined as full Shidduch Center members. 
  • Please note that the Member Access nav bar button and dropdown menu will only be visible to those who are members, and are logged on to our site with a Username and Password.

Personalized intake meeting

  • All Shidduch Center members will have the opportunity to have an in-person meeting with a Shidduch Center representative. The purpose of this meeting is to provide answers to any questions you may have about the shidduch process, as well to receive a personalized list of shadchanim, both locally and from out-of-town, whom we feel would be most beneficial for each individual to reach out to, based on what is shared in the intake meeting and our knowledge of over 100 shadchanim from our past experiences and events.
  • To schedule an intake meeting, please use the Intake Services dropdown item from the Member Access nav bar menu.
  • Again, please note that the Member Access nav bar button and dropdown menu will only be visible to those who are members, and are logged on to our site with a Username and Password.
Enhanced profile building services
  • All Shidduch Center members have the option of sharing their shidduch profile with our review team to receive personal feedback on their profile, as well as suggestions as to how to better the presentation of one’s profile, when applicable.
  • To share a profile with our team, please use the Profile Review dropdown item from the Member Access nav bar menu. Once there, simply enter your name and email address, upload your profile, and it will be sent to our review team. Responses from the team will be sent back within 3 working days.
  • Once again, please note that the Member Access nav bar button and dropdown menu will only be visible to those who are members, and are logged on to our site with a Username and Password.
 Reduced fee and priority access to our Meet the Shadchan and Educational events 
  • Throughout the course of each year, The Shidduch Center holds a number of Meet the Shadchan events for different age groups where single women have the opportunity to spend an evening meeting many shadchanim in one night, both locally and from out of town, as well as holding Educational events featuring renowned speakers and experts, also both locally and from out of town, to share invaluable insight and guidance to those in shidduchim. All Shidduch Center members will receive a minimum of 50% off all entrance fees, as well as priority sign up to events that have limited seating.
Priority sign up to meet visiting shadchanim and trips to meet out of town shadchanim
  • Many out of town shadchanim come to visit Baltimore over the course of each year for various personal reasons. Thanks to our working relationship with those shadchanim, they are often more than happy to meet a handful of single women while they are here. Additionally, The Shidduch Center arranges trips from time to time for groups of single women to meet out of town shadchanim in New York and New Jersey.
  • As these smaller events are usually only able to accommodate a limited number of women, Shidduch Center members will have full priority to join in both of the above events.
Please note, while we have spent a great deal of time, effort, and thought in fully testing our new website, as is with all things technological, there may be some glitches along the way. We encourage you to provide feedback if any of the website functionality does not seem to be working properly, so that we may make the required adjustments in as timely a fashion as possible.
For anyone who is experiencing financial hardship, some grants for membership may be available.
Please contact us to discuss available need-based grants.
Of course, The Shidduch Center of Baltimore will continue to be a resource and offer many services to all community members. It is only the above services that are designated as member-only benefits.
