    what is there to do over the summer for girls going into seminary? any ideas?

    ☕ DaasYochid ☕

    Go on vacation to E.Y.

    Oh, I forgot, that’s what you’re doing for the whole year.


    Organize shiurim for other girls in the same situation. Go to shiurim organized by other girls in the same situation.


    Get a job to help your parents with the tremendous expense of seminary.


    Get a job and make a lot of money so you don’t have to ask your parents for spending money. I don’t know what situation you’re in, but even my friends that, Baruch HaShem, had parents that were able and willing to give them a lot of money just to “enjoy,” tried to bring as much as their own money to sem.

    There’s a sense of pride and responsibility when you use money that you yourself saved up instead of using money from Daddy’s pocket.


    get a job doing WHAT, is the question!


    Become a shomer kishuin?


    I don’t recommend being a camp counselor if you’re looking to make money. If you’re good with kids, I suggest finding a local play group/day care that runs through the summer. You can usually find a $10/hr job that can really add up.

    Most offices won’t take a secretary for just the summer, but maybe you can try looking into that as well. They’ll pay a bit more.

    If you live in New York and can only get a day camp job, make sure you at least apply for youth corp. Even with youth corp, don’t expect to make a lot more than $1,000 for the whole summer. They pay minimum wage, and you end up doing “volunteer hours” and having fake lunch breaks.

    If you’re a good swimmer, maybe consider becoming a certified lifeguard and have a lifeguarding job.

    Good luck! And have a great year in sem 🙂


    are there any teen camps that would accept girls my age as a counselor?


    anyone know of any summer jobs i could take in Israel this year? any ideas?


    Just look for people who need help and offer it for a price.


    the thing is that i wanna do something fun and interesting seeing that this is my last “real” summer. and i needa figure it out! time is running out! help!
