Is nachalas the same type as bya but just less academic?
Is that their only diff?October 25, 2010 7:30 am at 7:30 am #1101714
They have similar academic levels – the main difference between them is that Nachlas is extremely warm. They focus on giving each individual girl what she needs in order to get the most out of the year. If you talk to an ex-Nachlas girl she will rave about how much the Nachlas staff cares about each girl! They also try to make sure that the girls grow in a real, internal way…they do not believe in brainwashing. There is a huge mix of girls there but they encourage normalcy and being down to earth.October 25, 2010 9:44 am at 9:44 am #1101715whatrutalkingabtMember

ThanxNovember 1, 2010 7:34 am at 7:34 am #1101719
Sorry – couldn’t find the post. It depends why you’re grades are like that…if you’ve been trying hard and those r your grades there might be too much pressure and work for you. Most of the girls have higher averages and it may be hard for you to keep up.November 23, 2010 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #1101722
Please let me post a little bit of general advise.
Recently, in Israel, some new small seminaries for girls have started up, some of them privately run. I am sure all of them strive to run excellent programs.
I am also sure that
of them have management with a lot of experience in the field of education and are logistically well organized.
With this, if you are considering applying to such a program, it is imperative that you independently seek information and references from girls who are there now, girls who are already no longer there, and from members of the community where the seminary you are considering is situated.
With hope that this is a relevant forum, to post such advice.January 2, 2011 7:00 am at 7:00 am #1101724
It was approx. a month ago since I posted some general advise. Another way of finding out about your seminary of choice (or the seminary you need to reject) is by using google and looking at the most recent entries. (Even the seminary you want to reject, I am sure that the intention of the management there was to strive to run an excellent program, but in practice it unfortunately did not work out so.)January 2, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1101725yolkMember
does anyone have any info on bya in eretz yisrael and nachlas?? the education, teachers and girls??? and what diffrentiates them??? also does anyone know where bya is located????January 2, 2011 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1101726an ideaParticipant
BYA is in Har nofJanuary 13, 2011 8:20 am at 8:20 am #1101728
Re my post last week, also do a google search on the seminary name using Hebrew letters as sometimes there are reports that are written in Hebrew.January 13, 2011 8:31 am at 8:31 am #1101729
If it is the case that the seminary that you are thinking of seems to present a negative picture from different sources, you should realize that the people who are presenting the information are doing this for to’eles . I.e. their intention is not to spread loshon horo but to warn potential candidates what lies behind the scheme they are registering for.April 7, 2011 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #1101730
The advice I posted 4 months ago is still (unfortunately) very relevant. It is becoming known that there is a specific small girls’ seminary in Israel with a very negative image, and this wants to continue for further semesters and also do summer schemes.
The reason for the negative image, basically boils down to mismanagement. It is still very unclear whether this is going to be improved – one might be able to find out more and receive a balanced picture by speaking to some of the faculty members (not the person in charge) who are in the main good people.
Because of the negativity, the seminary is trying to find ways to advertise itself using different names, hoping that prospective students will not realize to whom they are applying.
At the time of me writing this, one can even find a seminary web-site where the name of the owner is not even mentioned and ones only form of initial contact is through a web form.
So really, one must look into a program well, before one applies.July 5, 2011 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #1101731yolkMember

Around a year ago I published advice, that when deciding on a seminary, one should look very carefully into the program and who is running it.
There has recently been published an advertisement for a “new” seminary in Israel that states, using poetic form in the first person, that a “seminary with a name” and a “seminary focused on its reputation” are not things one wants.
I agree with the contrasted positive that one should want a “seminary that knows my name” and a “seminary concerned about my personal growth” but in my opinion the “name” of the institution and its reputation are also very important issues. If it is a new program, then the reputation of those in charge should trump.
It is good that this seminary – together with it’s new parallel boys’ yeshiva type program – has as the director, a well known educator from the USA.
One still needs to beware that this director had also publicly associated himself with a seminary that lasted only a year and managed to gain a very bad reputation during that time (although he was not involved much, as far as I know during that year). His seminary’s web page is very similar in style to the other one, and thus I would check very carefully who else is involved on a senior level, and to what extent.November 19, 2014 5:33 am at 5:33 am #1101744shulMember
My daughter is getting ready to apply to seminary in Israel and I would love some updated advice. She is a top student and considering BJJ or Bnos Sara. Are there other seminaries she should look at? What are the negatives of each of these? Would love to hear more about Bnos Sara and especially from recent graduates.November 23, 2014 6:03 am at 6:03 am #1101746
i need help w these sem?! ao?!November 23, 2014 8:52 am at 8:52 am #1101747cisMember
Shul- why don’t you look into Seminar? They are the same type of BY girls as these two sems. Plus they are very academic too, and they even have an honors track for the smarter student.
In addition, they are very warm and caring and there for their girls.November 23, 2014 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1101748
shul thats so cool tell me where she ends up going i may end up in her class:) that would b so weird!! bc im looking into those sems as well:) i have no clue about at about these sems so at u kw just let me kw:)
cis – thats what i need so who would b their for me i had a terrible experience with the whole school system and giving it another chance! i think shul should stick w bjj or bnos sarah since theyve been opened the longest and so it gives them more experience and thats what i REALLY need!!November 24, 2014 5:38 am at 5:38 am #1101749mitzvahgirl613Participant
