In case you are not familiar, The Yeshiva and Seminary Students Guide is a great “free” guide that helps Yeshiva and Seminary Students get acclimated to their year in Israel. It is also a valuable tool for visitors to Israel as it includes tremendous amounts of information about Israel including touring ideas, restaurant listings etc. We are always looking for ways to make students lives easier.
Do you have any ideas that would help students spending a year (or more) in Israel?
(P.S. if you are coming to Israel or already here look us up we’ll be happy to get you a complimentary guide)December 23, 2012 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #1034975ToiParticipant

How about an article teaching seminary girls how to behave as shabbos guests.
They are getting worse with the years!December 26, 2012 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #1034978
We have a section dedicated to teaching them about how to behave when they go places on shabbos. It is hard to undo 18 years with one article but were doing our best. If youd like to see the article pick up a copy at mannys and feel free to pass it on to your insubordinate guests.October 12, 2014 4:55 am at 4:55 am #1034979yentachayaParticipant
I read your seminary guide when I was in seminary. You list a very sarcastic way of asking yourself out for Shabbos. My suggestion is that you write an accurate way to ask yourself out. And one in Hebrew would be helpful, too.October 12, 2014 1:07 pm at 1:07 pm #1034980
There’s a great article in in ami saying that seminaries should provide their students with shabbos on premises. I happen to very strongly agree with that idea.October 12, 2014 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1034981
Better yet, they should go home for Shabbos.October 12, 2014 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm #1034982
Good idea! They’ll spend so much time in the air they’ll never be in seminary…October 12, 2014 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1034983
Who said anything about flying?October 12, 2014 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1034984
I was under the impression that the seminary guide is for American girls going to seminaries in Israel. I’m assuming you don’t think they should go in the first place, which I cannot say I disagree with.October 12, 2014 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #1034985
I won’t make a generalization; I think some can gain from it. I don’t like that going overseas is the default.
The idea of girls running around to random homes, for example, their roommate’s third cousin, for Shabbos, does bother me, as well as the fact that the already skimpy piece of chicken has to be divided into that many more parts.
I wasn’t referring to the guide, I was referring to your reference to the Ami article.October 12, 2014 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #1034986kkls45Member

By not going overseas to begin with.October 12, 2014 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #1034989JosephParticipant
Overseas seminary is more often a junket than anything else.October 12, 2014 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1034990
