All these posts are very helpful. Thank you everyone!
Oh Shreck!, yes, the simple pshat is truly amazing, but i I was also looking for a deeper meaning in order to use the psukim as mashalim. Thank you for that very interesting insight!June 5, 2013 2:24 am at 2:24 am in reply to: Looking for deeper meanings to psukim in aishes chayil (Mishlei) #957724
That website is amazing @WIY, thank you!
Thank you again for all the extremely helpful comments!
@caleefornia, you seem to know lots about DB. What are the girls, as a whole like? Judging from the ideology of a few of the girls we know are going next year, we are still not completely sure that this is these type of girls type of girls who I want my daughter being around next year. Are hose who attend DB motivated to learn and grow? Or do they all keep in mind that it is a “chilled” seminary? My daughter got rid of all the non Jewish music on her iPod earlier this year, and I just want to make sure there wont be any peer pressure to make her take a few steps backwards.
Hm, sounds as if DB is the place. My daughter isn’t an especially amazing student… She is serious about her studies, however she is not as studious as she could be. As DB is academic, would she struggle if she has a hard time with keeping her grades at A, B range?
Thank you for the correction, it IS AtereS… I did not realize there were two different seminaries with such similar names! Thank you everyone for your input! They both sound like outstanding places. @candy613 and @cmon, my daughter said she has quite a few friends who applied to those two seminaries as well. To sum it all up, Darchei Binah is both “homey” and welcoming, as well as being open minded and guiding, while Ateres is “homey” but more secluded, and has higher expectations?
@caleefornia, just a few more, please! My daughter was a little worried that the majority of the girls going to DB were extremely similar to those going to, say, Sharfmans (which is definitely not a school she would like to go to. She wants a place where there is a somewhat large mix of girls, who are friendly and not “new yorky” as they call it today, (again, we are from a more “out of town” city). She just wants to spend her year in Israel with down to earth, kind, openminded girls who are looking to be inspired and grow from their year in Seminary.
Again, we appreciate all of your comments!
Hi! im also IYH going to be applying for Seminar.. had a couple questions myself. What kind of girls go there? is there a big variety or strictly yeshivish or strictly to the left etc.. how many girls usually go to seminar?
haha she said that nobody gave her one.. she shud email or call?
alrightyyyy sounds like fun!!! hahah sorryyy just one more thing i think is good to ask, what types of things do you have to pack? just so she has a heads up
kk so like is junior specialty or waterfront or even ropes course fun?
haha well thats a good idea to have mods.
alrightyyy then! i will let her know that raninu definitely is not a scary place after all 😀
oh and also whats the best staff job someone could get?
what are mods?
so shopping613, you arent going this year?
also, ok is it a bad idea if she goes both halves and doesnt know anybody to begin with?
its a chilled matzev- i think she is going both, but im not sure. what are you going as??
okay thanks guys! ill send her to this site and hopefully she’ll be a little more excited!
Ok. So is raninu a place where you are like judged depending on what brands of clothing you wear, or how many friends you make?
Ah i have a questionnn. one of my really awesome close friends is gonna be working as a mothers helper this summer. but she doesnt know anybody going there, shes extremely outgoing and is sweet and has a huge sense of humor, and an all together amazing friend. no matter what i tell her, shes still a little nervous that she wont meet anybody there. you have experience, what do you think??
