New York, NY – July 15, 2008 – SawYouAtSinai and YUConnects today announced that
registration is open at http://www.sawyouatsinai.com/Nachamu
for its annual Shabbos Nachamu singles weekend. The event, which is geared toward
modern orthodox machmir and yeshivish/black hat singles ages 23-39, will take place
at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford Connecticut on August 15-17.
Matchmakers from YUConnects and SawYouAtSinai will be available at the weekend to
talk with attendees and to facilitate matchmaking. Interactive programming will
enable singles to meet each other. The weekend will feature delicious food, exciting
entertainment, live music, and stimulating shiurim. All facilities of the Sheraton’s

It is the 4th year that SawYouatSinai is hosting this event, which has taken place
at locations throughout the tri-state area. It is the first time that it will be
hosting in conjunction with Yeshiva University and their singles site YUConnects,
which serves students and alumni in the Yeshiva University community.
“We are proud to be affiliated with YUConnects. This partnership will further the
success of the weekend” Marc Goldmann, founder and CEO of SawYouAtSinai said. YUConnects
is a program sponsored by the Center for the Jewish Future that is open to Yeshiva
University single undergraduate alumni and students designed to facilitate meeting
opportunities and networking. Fourteen couples have married from previous year’s
weekends. Mirta Konig, who met her bashert at least year’s Shabbos Nachamu weekend
said “Things happen when you’re really not expecting them. I was on the event committee
last year but I wasn’t going to go because I was finishing my masters, but they
told me I had to go if I was on the committee. Finding my husband was the best unexpected
gift I could have ever received.”
“It was a fun filled weekend with great programming, complimented with a relaxed
environment to meet new people” Lisa Grundman said of last years’ event. With attendees
at last year’s event coming from such varied locations as New York, New Jersey,
Florida, Baltimore, Milwaukee, and even Canada, England, Israel, and Costa Rica,
this years event is sure to draw a diverse crowd.
