hey, i just got back from Lahav a few weeks ago and I had an AMAZING time. I’m so happy I decided to go 🙂 It’s true, we didn’t have as much free time as other seminaries but that’s because it’s only half a year so we have to have time to learn things, u know? and yes there is an extension till right before pesachFebruary 10, 2013 12:13 am at 12:13 am #1004367
Happy you had an amazing time!Can you specify what made it so amazing…. Were the girls all BY type? Were you stretched academically? What is the ‘extension program until Pesach like? who stays for it? Do you know how many girls Lahav accommodates? Need to make up my mind and not sure….February 11, 2013 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1004368
just everything the whole Israel experience, all the amazing trips, the teachers were all so good and were so interesting…more or less they weren’t like the yeshivish type or anything but they were frum solid girls…it wasn’t so academic like we didn’t have to do so much work but it was an intense schedule we didn’t have so much free time like other seminaries because we were learning everything in just 4 months…the extension is like a “shana bet” it’s really for girls who are really serious about growing…I think Lahav wants like 50-60 girls which i think is just the right amount…I really think you should go, you will not regret it I wasn’t either sure but I’m so happy I went…if you have any more questions feel free to ask meFebruary 11, 2013 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #1004369

The dorm is actually pretty good compared to other seminaries. It’s more like in an apartment…it’s good dw, the food is also not so bad. lunch was always a main dish, salad, and a soup and supper was usually fleishigs. breakfast was yogurts, cereal,coffee etc…i’m telling you they feed you well…we all gained so much weight during the 4 months lolFebruary 17, 2013 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1004374
You mean to say 2 main meals a day???February 18, 2013 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #1004375
