Hi, I’m a 14 year old BY girl from Berkeley, I only eat macrobiotic food. I really want to go to BJJ but I heard that all Israeli seminaries serve a lot of unhealthy food. What seminaries provide macrobiotic (or at least organic) food? Will this be a problem in shidduchim?April 7, 2013 2:00 am at 2:00 am #943199writersoulParticipant
What about seminaries without rules, where you can debate the teachers over basic fundamentals all day, without homework, tests or a dress code, with college credits, and in the Old City of Yerushalayim but still near stuff?
Sorry if this isn’t as good as Torah’s, but it doesn’t have the benefit of PBA’s expertise. (Though honestly, if you have heard of any place like this, LET ME KNOW!)April 7, 2013 2:08 am at 2:08 am #943200
Torah613Torah- What a reinvention!
(something tells me Brooklyn, but I’m game)
Ask your Rabbi and health practitioner if the macrobiotic diet is for you.April 7, 2013 2:10 am at 2:10 am #943201
I would contact the people in Bat Ayin (spiritual hippy dati leumi organic farming settlers) to see if they have any suggestions. If you’re looking for something more charedi than their programs, they may know where you to point you.
I realize the OP isn’t serious. But I thought I’d answer anyway in case someone ever really has this question.April 7, 2013 2:17 am at 2:17 am #943202
Or you can ask the President of the Women’s Club in “Berkley” 🙂April 7, 2013 2:39 am at 2:39 am #943203
Writersoul – There’s a stira between no homework and college credits. Also between in the Old City and near places. Maybe Ohr Sameach?
Talmud: Brooklyn people are extremely close-minded. There is not one macrobiotic restaurant in Brooklyn, because they have no appreciation of nature, of real food, of holistic approaches to eating. I would be ashamed to admit it if I stepped foot into Brooklyn. And my Holistic Health Practitioner says it’s fine, and she’s also a Rabbi.
yytz: Thank you so much. That sounds perfect. I particularly love this line from their website: The village boasts an innovative Zionist-Chassidic Yeshiva, and 2 unique women’s programs, one in English and one in Hebrew, which combine Torah learning, creativity, and closeness to the Land of Israel. … Bat Ayin also hosts our own local organic winery, with some of the most delicious wine you have ever tasted.
This attracts me since I am a great wine aficionado, particularly of dry and holy wine.April 7, 2013 2:52 am at 2:52 am #943204
Writersoul: I don’t know, maybe Pardes Institute?April 7, 2013 3:09 am at 3:09 am #943205writersoulParticipant
Torah- I’m also looking for a two-year diploma mill med school. Does TTI have a program?
Maybe I need a lesson from Popa after all…April 7, 2013 3:12 am at 3:12 am #943206
Dry and holy wine! LOL.
Rabbi Lazer Brody has endorsed Bat Ayin’s women’s program (on his blog), and many of the faculty of the yeshivah (not sure about the woman’s program) are charedi. That suggests that although Bat Ayin is very innovative haskhafically (by combining religious Zionism with chassidic philosophy from Breslov and Chabad and other sources), that doesn’t mean it’s out of the ordinary in terms of halachic observance.April 7, 2013 3:31 am at 3:31 am #943207

Writersoul, you need lessons. Go to the link in the OP, where the one and only PBA has generously provided guidance to us fortunate and grateful YWN CR posters.
Diploma mills for med school are easy to find in Berkeley. My neighbor trains Holistic Health Practitioners in Energy Healing in only 2 weeks, you get an MDA which is almost the same thing as an MD.
Stop laughing people, this is a very serious thread.April 7, 2013 5:47 am at 5:47 am #943209☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Not going to BJJ: bad for shidduchim.
Wanting macrobiotic food: bad for shidduchim.
14 years old: good for shidduchim.April 7, 2013 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #943210BronyParticipant
if only more girls were concerned about issues like dis, we wouldn’t have fatties complaining that noone wants to date them. shame on all of you. you go girl.April 8, 2013 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #943211
DY: 14 years old is good for shidduchim how exactly?
Not nice, BronyApril 8, 2013 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #943212popa_bar_abbaParticipant

Which would just make the shidduch crisis worse. Which gives me a good idea.April 9, 2013 2:46 am at 2:46 am #943213☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I’m poking fun at the guys who want to marry girls much younger than them.
