Whether Re-Blessing candidates will be admitted to this matching and under what condition is not clarified yet. Re-blessing candidates who want to attend should send in their application stating their situation and wait for further guidelines.

Those Blessing candidates who participate in the matching and get matched should attend the Blessing on Feb. 22nd 2007.

Attending the matching

Ideally all candidates should plan to attend the matching in person. This time this will present a challenge, since there are 2 weeks between the matching and the Blessing. For those that will be able to attend the matching in person at this point will need to make their own plans for the time between the matching and blessing. There is the possibility to stay in Chung-Pyung during this time. We will try to provide some program for this time.

Those that cannot attend the matching in person can attend the matching by picture. In this case it is necessary to fill out the "Declaration of consent for TP’s Matching" Form. Please apply in time and stay in touch with Geros Kunkel for further proceedings.


The Blessing is for all couples from the above mentioned matching. In addition Second Generation that were matched by their parents can attend if their age is above 24. Also those matched by parents should complete their application with the Second Generation Blessing Department. All Blessing participants should pay the Blessing Donation of 1400 USD (1100 Euro) for Western Europe and 500 USD (400 Euro) for Eastern Europe before attending the Blessing.

The Blessing Dept. will organize 2 Blessing Workshops especially for those candidates going to Korea. We advise all participants to use this chance to attend one of these Blessing Workshops. Currently we are planning to hold both Workshops in Schmitten Germany, with the possibility of flying together as group from Frankfurt to Seoul. Airplane tickets are currently between 800-1000 Euros. Please order these in time through the Blessing Dept.

Other matters:

Your stay and accommodations in Korea during the official events connected to the matchings and Blessing will be covered by the Blessing Donation. Further details concerning the plan of the events in Korea will follow.

Please stay alert for changes and updates to be sent out in the near future ( Those that inform the Blessing Dept. of their desire to attend the upcoming matching or Blessing will be informed directly by the Blessing Department of further news and developments.
