The practice[ edit ] In Orthodox Jewish circles, dating is limited to the search for a marriage partner. Both sides usually the singles themselves, parents, close relatives or friends of the persons involved make inquiries about the prospective partner, e. Some engage in it as a profession and charge a fee for their services. Usually a professional matchmaker is called a shadchan , but anyone who makes a shidduch is considered the shadchan for it.

Rabbi The word rabbi , which means a religious "teacher", is commonly used in English to refer to any ordained Jewish scholar. It is the same Hebrew word as Rav, see below with the possessive suffix i. Although it is technically a possessive form, it is used as a general title even for those who are not one's personal teacher, particularly for the Tannaim , and, in its English form, for any rabbi. In Israel, among the Haredim , Rabbi can be used colloquially interchangeably with the Yiddish Reb, and is used as a friendly title, similar to calling someone " Sir ".
