I want to know more about the yeshiva and seminary. Do the boys and girls know each other? How religious is it? So on. Anything you know will really help please.April 5, 2017 9:06 am at 9:06 am #1250802
The yeshiva and seminary are very religious, and in some ways similar to other BT places and in other ways different.
The main difference is the rebbeim/rebbetzins aren’t all the same hashkafa and backgrounds. For example some rebbeim went to Chaim Berlin, Mir, YU, Gush, etc. Some prefer it some don’t. It gives the talmid a varied exposure to yiddishkeit. Torah and derech Eretz have primacy, and more subtle issues like learning or working or the state of Israel or the army have a variety of approaches and each student can find a role model that speaks to the. Their main focus isn’t to teach hashkafa rather teach the tools and skills to be independent Torah learners and not have to rely on English books.
I went to Shapells (darchei Noam) for two years and I didn’t know any of the girls at MRC. The two schools are very separate, both in terms of physical distance and zero mingling. However, since the schools share rebbeim, many shidduchim are made between the schools.
Let me know if you have specific questions.April 5, 2017 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #1251198
refoelzeev, thank you so much for that. What is the age of most of the girls?April 5, 2017 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #1251200
refeolzeev, if I want to go out on shidduchim dates and since I do not know anyone there would they help find guys for me?April 5, 2017 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1251232
Rebshidduch, why don’t you look on the Shappell’s website?
We learned there after we were married, but that was 25+ years ago, and I know it’s changed since then.April 5, 2017 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #1251487
Most girls I believe are in their mid twenties, finished college, but it’s a range of anywhere between 20-60.
The seminary had shadchanim but they wouldn’t set you up the minute you land there, maybe after a few weeks if they feel you’re ready.April 5, 2017 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #1251523
refoelzeev, I am ready to get married. But I wanted to go to seminary for a year.April 6, 2017 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #1252256
So go if you feel it’s the right one for you and hopefully you’ll get set up with your bashert
