Parents of English speaking High School graduates wishing to give their daughters the opportunity to spend their seminary year in Eretz Yisroel are faced with an overwhelming dilemma. True, there is much to gain from the special ruach and intense learning of the seminary experience in Eretz Yisroel. From the intense tefillos in the mekomos hakedoshim and from touring the Land that we all learnt about in Tanach. But how many can afford the prohibitive price of a seminary year in Eretz Yisroel? How many parents wonder if it is truly necessary to spend a whole year away? We all know how seminaries grapple with the amount of “down time” given throughout the regular year and the risks involved. But is there an alternative?
With the Brachos and counsel of the Gedolei Hador, Bais Yaakov Mezuraz, a new five month intense seminary program located in Yerushalayim, is set to open its doors before Av. Led by the well known Mechanech Rabbi Kalman Rosen and mechaneches Mrs. Leah (Assaf) Berlin, Bais Yaakov Mezuraz will allow its talmidos to benefit from intellectually stimulating classes, Hashkafa Shiurim, supervised trips and personal connection with its experienced staff.
The program is designed for the serious academic student interested in learning and growth. By starting the seminary year right before Av, the talmidos will have the time and tools for proper preparation for the Yamim Noraim and truly enjoy the unique experience of Succos in Yerushalayim.
A few slots are still available for the opening semester. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Mrs. S. Serebrowsky at 248-430-4377 (Israeli time).
It is the hope of many that this new program will enable more families with the possibility to give their daughters the chance to grow, Beezras Hashem, into future Neshei Chayil who will build Batei Neemanim in Klal Yisroel.
