Bintel Brief: Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Give Me Advice

Shoshanna Rikon is a Jewish cupid. The founder of Shoshanna’s Matches, Rikon works to create love connections for Jewish singles in the New York tri-state area. Her work as an old-fashioned matchmaker in the town that gave the world “Sex and the City” has caught the attention of media outlets ranging from The New York Times to the Forward and landed her on “Dr. Phil” and VH1.

For the month of March, Rikon will be moonlighting as Forward’s guest Bintel Brief columnist. While she won’t be making matches (for that, you’d have to join Shoshanna’s Matches), she will be engaging in an equally venerable Jewish tradition: giving advice!

Do you have a question about love, life or loss? Do you have a dating dilemma or a Jewish conundrum? Could you use a little advice?
