Amy, a Hadassah acquaintance, asked if she and her husband could spend Shabbas at our house. They would eat meals and attend services at a nearby shul. At the shul they were introduced to a young woman who had recently graduated from the Tisch School of NYU in playwriting.
She invited them to attend the reading of a play she had written, and they became friends.
Our son, who had recently become very observant, said he wanted to get married, and began looking. When this was mentioned to Amy, she said, "I know a young woman who works at NYU and knows many religious young women." Our son called Amy's friend. They talked for an hour-and-a-half on the phone, after which our son said, "That\'s the kind of woman I would like to meet."
They met the following Shabbas at my Hadassah friend Amy's home, and married three months later. They now have four beautiful children.
