I just wanted you to know how great Lori Salkin has been in supporting her members. The care, time, and personal interest that she puts into her matchmaking work is truly amazing! I have just had the privilege of getting to know Lori and I am so glad that I did, as it has made this process so much easier.

My connector Lori Salkin made a point of contacting me and interviewing me on the phone before she made any suggestions. We spoke for about an hour. She continues to contact me after dates to ask how my dates go. This helps give both of us a better idea of what I’m looking for. She’s working completely on a volunteer basis which makes me appreciate her even more. She’s very aware of her members. She knows what city I am in and doesn’t suggest people who are not in my vicinity. She also knows if I’m busy or not. Having a personal connection with my connector gives me greater control over my dating. I don’t get suggestions at inopportune time, and instead get suggestions when I feel I am available. I really appreciate Lori and all her work, and I believe her style of matchmaking is very effective.

I had heard about SYAS from friends, but I was pretty skeptical about the whole thing,” said RF of Brookline, and thought online dating would be impersonal and overwhelming. But Salkin, she said, lived in her neighborhood, and held her hand through the whole process. “I can’t give Lori enough credit for making my SYAS experience a success,” she recalled. “I joined when she told me she had a profile of a guy who she thought would be a good match.” Salkin was right, but it didn’t end there. “After connecting ‘M’ and I, she followed up on both sides to help us along,” she said. “She was not pushy, and followed our lead. She was there when I needed advice, or just needed someone to listen to me.


I just want to let you know that one of my shadchanim is doing an outstanding job and the results show. I am very hard to set because of my haskkafas but somehow Lori Salkin has figured me out to a “T” and set me up on some good dates. I know It’s common knowledge that your shadchanim work as a chesed but I know Lori does a lot more than almost any other shadchan that I have encountered on the site. I just wanted to make you aware that you have one of the best shadchanim out there because sometimes a person may not know that he has gold in his backyard.

He liked the fact that Lori knew the women very well. “Despite making use of a computer, human intelligence is always the best!”

Lori was an incredible resource during our courtship,” said Ken. “She would listen to my complaints and frustrations about my wife and about the dating process, and filter it all before she passed anything on to her. She helped us to negotiate key steps in our relationship, and she generally helped me to stay sane through the nervousness of proposing,

It takes a person with compassion, dedication and perseverance to stick with a job like this,” said RF. “I’m incredibly grateful and humbled by the shadchanim on SYAS. Hashem sends the right person at the right time, and SYAS is a great way to let that happen!




I wanted to pass along my feedback on matchmaker Lori Salkin. I recently got the opportunity to meet Lori, and it’s been a true pleasure working with her. She is very diligent about her matchmaking and goes the extra mile to get to know her members and send quality matches.If there were SYAS Oscars for best matchmaker, I would like to nominate Lori. She’s an all-star! :)

I listened to JewishTalkRadio on Motzash for the first time to listen to Lori Salkin, I just wanted to say how amazing and inspirational Lori is. As a modern Orthodox woman, I’ve been told that doing it all is nearly impossible in today’s day and age. Therefore, it’s very refreshing to listen to Lori who is both a mother and entrepreneur. Women in the Orthodox world should all try to emulate her and know that we can do it all.
