Who knew Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev moonlighted as a shadchan?
In a recent Facebook post, the Likud MK announced that she is on the hunt for an eligible bachelor for her beloved advisor, Liron. On the occasion of Liron’s 34th birthday, Regev writes, she is turning to Facebook, a place she heard has “married” many people. “With the help of God, on her next birthday perhaps in her Facebook photo she will be her wearing white.”
In Israel, the post quickly went viral and was picked up by the country’s mainstream news outlets. In the post’s 900 comments, many men have written their numbers in an attempt to snag a date. Others have suggested potential suitors, including the helpful reminder from one commenter: “Shimon Peres is single.”
