# 3019 Next Question Please

Q. A bochur contemplating finding a shiduch, should he prefer a Bas Yisroel to a Bas Levy or a Bas Cohen, to be able to comply with the mitzva of Pidyon Haben. (He is an Yisroel).
A. Ateres Paz (E. H. 4: 6) addresses this question and rules that it is not an issue, since he may not even have a first born boy. Besides, he argues that one does not have to be concerned with tending to a mitzva on the future that is not under his control. He highly recommends to place his efforts on finding the right partner regarding other more essential and most relevant issues. (See Shulchan Aruch Y.D. 305).
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a.
