My husband is an extremely supportive, compassionate, kind, and loving husband. He takes his responsibilities very seriously. He is an extremely amazing husband and man.
The strength of our marriage is that my husband is very supportive and understanding. We both went through similar experiences and now we're sharing shared challenges together as a couple.
My family accepts and respects my husband.
I have always gotten along well with my in-laws. My mother-in-law is such a sweet lady! We have a good relationship.
Hershel: Elisheva wants to raise children. That is her sincere dream and passion. She also has excellent character traits and values.

Being married to Elisheva is the best! She enables me to accomplish everything that I do. It's so special to me how she shares my values and does whatever she can to make me happy.

I anticipate that having child will enable me to fulfill my dream of being a mother.

As a couple, we enjoy studying Torah together. Taking walks. Calling relatives together. Going shopping for Shabbos. Just spending time together. We also like playing scrabble together, and handling our lizards.

On the side, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts from an online college.
Hershel: My life is about is about becoming closer to G-d by fulfilling his will. I learn Torah all day. That is what I want to do with my life, and that is what I love doing best.
To relax, I like to learn lighter, less intricate areas of Torah study, like the Prophets rather than the Talmud. I like to play with our two leopard geckos sometimes too. I also enjoy singing and cooking.
