I am about to be a high school senior and am looking for seminaries to apply to in the fall. To preface I was not raised religious by any means and have for the past year started learning as much as I possibly can about judaism. I wasnt born jewish and went to public school my whole life B’Ezrat I plan on sending my case to the beit din after sem. I already plan on applying to Machon Maayan and Meorot Yerushalayim. Meorot is excepting of my status as a non-jew at the moment and Machon deals with individuals on a case by case basis from what I’ve been told. Does anyone have any seminary recommendations that has a beginners track and that is relatively small with serious girls. I know everyone’s different but I really want to attend a sem where the girls are genuinely looking to become more frum? I want to feel comfortable in growing in my middos and tsnius without feeling ashamed for not being as knowledgeable as the other girls. If you need me to more specific I can add more detail. Hope to get some good recommendations. ThanksJune 28, 2020 10:04 am at 10:04 am #1877274jdbParticipant
Check out Neve Yerushalayim. It’s an amazing, life-changing program that helps each participant find themselves, not just find “frum”. Participants come from a very diverse background, and everybody is there on their own journey.June 28, 2020 10:52 am at 10:52 am #1877325
@jbd Neve seems great. I will check them out. Thank you!June 28, 2020 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #1877364ShulchanAruchYidParticipant
Read “The Jewish Idea” by Rabbi Meor Kahane, it is a comprehensive must read for all Jews and future Jews. If you accept and internalize what is written there, nothing will stop you from becoming Jewish. You are slso free to look up my shiur on Torahcafe. Hatzlacha, may you becone a blessing to the Jewish people. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Peretz TellerJune 28, 2020 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1877427
@ShulchanAruchYid Thank you greatly for the book recommendation. I have been looking for some new books to read. I also appreciate you recommending me your shiur. Thank you again!June 28, 2020 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1877440asimpleyidParticipant
