A man, in his thirties, visited Rav Chaim Kanievsky explaining that he could not find a match and asked Rav Chaim for a blessing. Rav Chaim responded, “Your match hasn’t been born yet…be blessed and successful!” The man left in tears, despondent over hearing these words.
Months later, the man returned to Rav Chaim, this time with a smile on his face, announcing, “I’m engaged!” Those present were shocked, wondering how he accomplished this during the two months after hearing Rav Chaim’s previous words.
He explained that his bride-to-be is a woman who converted a month earlier, thus explaining the great Rav Chaim’s words, “Your match has not yet been born.”
