Dear Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah,
I was in shidduchim for almost three years and the past few months had been especially quiet. I saw an ad for Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah and decided to sponsor 40 days of Gemara. After just one week, we heard positive responses from two shidduchim. Though the first one didn’t end up working, the second was going well when my 40 days were up. I sponsored another 40 days and davened that if this shidduch was the right one it should go smoothly. Now with only one week left, I am B”H a kallah!
Enclosed is a check for the next 80 days for one amud of Gemara a day. Please learn in the zechus of myself & my chosson that we should build a bayis ne’eman b’yisrael.
The words “thank you” are not sufficient to express my everlasting hakoras hatov.
With several older siblings in the shidduch parashah, Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah’s ad in your pages for their “Better than a Segulah” campaign caught my eye. The idea of sponsoring Torah learning as a zechus was particularly appealing — kind of like “back to basics.” Haven’t we always learned that “Talmud Torah k’neged kulam”?
I decided to sponsor a learning cycle as a zechus for my older sister, and baruch Hashem, during the time the limud was taking place, she became a kallah. A year later, I repeated
my sponsorship, this time for my next sister, and amazingly, during that learning period, she also became a kallah!
Thank you for a wonderful publication and for bringing this opportunity to my attention. May we continue to share simchos in Klal Yisrael!

To the very chashuva organization Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah,
I read about your organization in the Binah magazine and decided to give it a try for a friend of mine who needed a shidduch. On the completion of the 40 days the first time around, I met boy #1
and it did not work out, but I continued with Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah – we got involved with boy #2, we met, and things were running smoothly… in the end – it didn’t work out.
The second time the 40 days was completed, boy #2 got engaged.
I continued with Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah – with the completion of 40 days for the third time, boy #1 got engaged!
It was puzzling… am I doing the right thing?
I am getting friendly messages from Above… but…
I continued with Chevrah Lomdei Mishnah – going stronger, this time a chapter of Mishnah a day instead of a Mishnah a day.
The fourth time around, the 40th day – I met my chosson to be and got engaged shortly thereafter!
We cannot understand the wondrous ways of Hashem, but we can see Him
guiding us when we are worthy.
Keep on doing good…
This letter is sitting around for a few days, now I know why – My friend whom I davened for throughout these four times and started another cycle when I got engaged – got engaged tonight!
Hashem listens to our prayers, and loves those who learn His Torah.
The donation I gave your organization, for parnassah, is already seeing results. A few days after your avreich started the study of a Mishnah a day on my behalf, I received a check from a client who owed me a sizeable amount of money. The following week I received several new work assignments. And just a few days ago, I learned that a recently completed project is doing very well financially. Many thanks to your organization for opening the Gates of Shomayim with your Torah study! Tizku l’mitzvos.
