"Adopt A Shadchan" has announced a new project called the "Nix the Pix Initiative", in memory of, or in honor of, in the merit of, the victims of the Meron tragedy.

Nix The Pix is an initiative by which shadchanim commit to not send, for 30 days, any shidduch resumes that include pictures of the prospects. So far they say over 220 shadchanim have joined the initiative.

Much ink has been spilled over the current behavior of sending, or demanding, pictures as part of the shidduch resume. The major objections to this include issues of tzniyus, prejudice, not giving the person a fair chance, and more.

Be that as it may, if it is bad, and they seem to recognize that it is, to send, or to demand, pictures of the shidduch prospect, they should never be doing it - not just for 30 days. And if it is not a bad thing, how is this a benefit to the victims?

Regardless, good for them for finding something unique to do, finding some way to commemorate the victims.
