Where does lol come into that statement?
On an unrelated note, the principal, Mrs. Soloff, is a sweetie. If any of you end up in KC, be sure to have a really close relationship with her. You’ll appreciate it later on in life.

Do they approach a girl who looks like she needs it? Any and all info will be greatly appreciated.March 3, 2014 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #1047866

2. are the girls culturally diverse?
3. are there ANY chassidish girls?
THANX!!! and im happy to be of help to anyone…March 9, 2014 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1047869
ik theres about 70ish girls…. whats the dress code? and is there a lot of free time? I heard from a girl there now that our year is gonna be a more academic year!!March 10, 2014 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm #1047870
dress code is a pleated skirt with a button down shirt. most girls wear long skirts but you can wear short. i think its a very american thing to wear long. girls wear jumpers on top of their shirts.
I’m solo excited!!! i need to go buy shirts!!March 10, 2014 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1047871
hey u said jumpers… where u from?? is it any colour jumper? i’m wearing long!! I know me too!! are u on the sem spread sheet?March 11, 2014 7:46 am at 7:46 am #1047872
no i never got hold of this sem sheet. i saw photos and they are all in multiple colour shirts with lots of different colour JUMPERS/SWEATERS looked rlly cute and fun!March 15, 2014 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #1047875musictomyearsMember

“Really, I know girls going”
She was confused as to why I didn’t know your names…March 27, 2014 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1047883

loveparty you have noone to go to on an off SHABBOS?
anyways teachers often host the girls and lots of families in israel offer their houses for seminary girls.March 31, 2014 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #1047888
no no course I do!! just wondering is there any shabbatons etc…April 2, 2014 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1047889
yes my friend in keser chaya said that they had a shabbaton near netanya where they visited the laniardo and had a kumzits by the beach on motzei SHABBOS. she wrote that at the begining of the seminary year.April 3, 2014 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #1047890
and all the other tiyulim that she has emailed to me sound absolutely incredible!!! im so excited. i cant wait 😀 !!!!April 3, 2014 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #1047891abmParticipant
Attn girls going into Keser Chaya- my daughter is there now and it is nothing like how it was advertised it’s first yr. The heads are trying to make it frumer than BJJ! It is very strict and much more scholastic than we thought. So be prepared!April 4, 2014 5:13 am at 5:13 am #1047892
ok. my friend is also there. i heard it is getting harder. this tends to happen with seminaries over time. they start off easy and eventually build up on academics. however she said it is quite basic. there is a parshah test that invloves 10 questions a week. she read through the parshah in english twice and got 8/10. soo0ooo pretty basic. she also said that there is HW but not enough that you cant go out and have fun.April 4, 2014 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #1047893abmParticipant
The heads are extremely “yeshivish”. When making the school sweatshirt NO words/pictures were allowed on the back (as opposed to schools in the U.S. that may allow) and they watch you like a hawk. Don’t expect to go out and “have fun” even when the work may seem basic to you.April 6, 2014 5:18 am at 5:18 am #1047894
ok. its fine. thats where im going so im just gonna have a blast even if its a bit more to the right or the left….April 6, 2014 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1047895
I much prefer it that way than if the heads just let u do what u like…April 8, 2014 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #1047896
yes love party- i agree. we are gonna have a BLAST!!!!April 9, 2014 12:30 pm at 12:30 pm #1047897
