Great location- right in Geula. NOT A GOOD IDEA TO POST THE ADDRESS. Uniform is button down and pleated. Dorm is new and nice. 4 girls per room. Each room has a private bathroom and shower.February 7, 2013 4:40 am at 4:40 am in reply to: Machon Raaya and SeminaróInfo Please #934300

My daughter is a NYer- in MR now. Musicaldignity described my daughter and her friends to a T. She is smart, normal, fun, definitely working, but having a blast!November 16, 2012 1:23 am at 1:23 am in reply to: Seminaries in israel evacuating.. #907099
More_2, Where did you get your info? My daughter is in eretz yisroel in sem and I heard nothing of the sort! I’m still very much looking forward to going to visit in the winter !
Machon Raaya is definitely a BY school. Like anywhere , I can’t vouch for every single girl. But the overall element is absolutely not into secular things such as movies and non Jewish music.
Bygirly , my daughter is in machon Raaya now and bh she does not have any of the issues you mentioned, nor do any of her friends there! They are all frum, solid tzniusdik (smart), fun girls, that are looking to be challenged. And a very large majority are quite “in the box “. Definitely a few amazing self made girls. Over all an incredible place!!
Machon Raaya is a BY school. A lot of out of town girls. I don’t know Darchei Bina. It’s quite academic . Text based. Great solid frum growing girls. But all coming from a BY standard. And these girls know how to have fun too.
The staff is warm, amazing, and will do anything to make the girls happy .
The building is brand new , right in the heart of geulah. Location couldn’t be any better!
Machon Raaya sounds like an option. Look into it.November 1, 2012 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm in reply to: Lakewood Sandy Shabbos Relief #902587
Wow! Beautiful ! Mi Kiamcha Yisroel !October 29, 2012 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm in reply to: How hard is Machon Raya? #901294
Not especially yeshivish but very frum, Tznius and growing girls. Lots of out of town. ( my daughter is definitely “in town,”)And my daughter has loads of personality – the life of the party and definitely knows how to have a good time. She is having an amazing experience since day 1! So far not at all overwhelmed by the work.October 29, 2012 3:37 am at 3:37 am in reply to: How hard is Machon Raya? #901292
My daughter is there now. So far it seems very manageable. The tests aren’t hard. The reports probably will be- she didn’t get her big report assignment yet. It’s very much text based. She is having an amazing time so far! Definitely plenty of “chill” and fun time. She absolutely LOVES everything about her seminary. Oh- and working hard is new to her- she definitely did not overwork in high school!September 20, 2012 1:51 am at 1:51 am in reply to: Seminary options? #907894
About Machon Raaya, the girls are a great mix. My daughter is definitely full of personality and so are her friends there. When speaking to her it sounds like they’re in camp;). Definitely nothing to worry about in that department !September 20, 2012 1:47 am at 1:47 am in reply to: Bnos Sarah #897451
Musical dignity, Machon Raaya really sounds like a good fit for you. Except for the fact that you’ll have to work hard. But you sound capable of it, so why not challenge yourself?September 13, 2012 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm in reply to: Rosh Hashana gift #896601

Its Ivrit b’Ivrit. Very academic. Yeshivish. Excellent seminary!September 11, 2012 3:58 am at 3:58 am in reply to: Seminary options? #907870
Musical dignity, I also think Machon Raaya is a good choice for you- if you are academic. Its a real BY school, but not especially yeshivish. Lots of out town girls. There are four girls in every room- each girl from a different state/country. My daughter is there now. We did lots of research and it’s an awesome place. They just moved to a beautiful new building right in Geula. There are around 65 girls- not too big, not too small. She just left a week ago- but so far she’s thrilled:)August 17, 2012 2:10 am at 2:10 am in reply to: inexpensive way to provide $$$ to student in Seminary #893170
She can open a joint account with you. (I know chase has what they call a high school checking account). I’m sure other banks have the same thing. She can have a visa debit card and use that in Israel. She can pull money from any ATM there for a small fee.May 9, 2012 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm in reply to: Seminary options? #907783
OOM, not sure about your year, but this year the seminaries had 30% more applicants than previous years, so it was a a very hard year to get in. Excellent girls didn’t get in to any sems they applied to.
Nanny, there is a new seminary opening up for next year- I think it’s called kesser Chaya. It’s geared to the strong BY girl. but not intensely academic. That might be an option for you.May 2, 2012 2:09 am at 2:09 am in reply to: amazon or ebay #871752

I was on the old program many yrs ago. It worked. I went on the new program last year. It’s a great program. Very realistic. The free fruits and veggies are awesome. It’s not a quick fix weight loss program. It’s designed for a 1/2 to 2 lb per week loss. If you go off the diet though, you don’t gain everything right back! I had a baby a few months ago, and actually just went back on last week!March 27, 2012 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm in reply to: Acharon Shel Pesach / Shabbos / Gebroks #863170
Thank you all. I was told I am allowed to prepare my “gebroks” food before Shabbos. The reason we eat gebroks Acharon shel pesach is to show its just a chumrah. That’s our minhag, and many other families minhag!March 26, 2012 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm in reply to: Acharon Shel Pesach / Shabbos / Gebroks #863155
Thank you all for your responses. I guess this is is a real minhag situation- I’ll have to ask my LOR.March 26, 2012 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm in reply to: Acharon Shel Pesach / Shabbos / Gebroks #863143

In my community most people eat only hand matzah- and a very large percentage don’t “bruck ” the first seven days.

I heard its supposed to be a great place, they dont care how small their sem ends up being as long as they only have good girls. Theyre 85/90 average and for solid bais yaakov girls.March 11, 2012 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm in reply to: nefesh chaya #858934

Goodbye, I don’t know anything about Mezuraz. It’s probably too late too apply there at this point…..I know lots of great girls that got into Lahav, I’m not sure if any of them are going though……February 22, 2012 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm in reply to: Bnos Sarah 2013… who's coming???? #919880

Senior license, I know a lot of girls that were accepted, but not many that are going. The girls that you know that are going are academic? Going to learn and grow? My daughter got in, but I’m very hesitant……..February 20, 2012 2:50 am at 2:50 am in reply to: Lahav Seminary #1004333

We are looking for a solid BY type of seminary. I’m not hearing that’s the general element they had this year.January 24, 2012 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm in reply to: Lahav Seminary #1004317
What type of girls are applying to Lahav? Can you compare the seminary to any other? My daughter is applying, and I’m getting conflicting reports.
Glad you got the great deal, Moishy.
