Israel Guidance

The College and Israel Guidance Departments were designed to help both parents and students understand and learn what post-high school opportunities are available, and guide them through the application processes with the ultimate goal of ensuring that each student makes the decision that is right for her, so she may further her education and personal growth upon graduation.

The Israel Guidance Department is designed to understand each student’s unique desires for her year in Israel. Our Principal, Esther Eisenman, travels annually to Israel to meet with our alumnae, as well as administrators and students in various seminaries to gather the most up-to-date information to help our students make their decisions. In addition, we hold an Israel Guidance night to share information about each seminary with the students and their parents. Each student meets with her advisor to find the right fit for her. Representatives of the seminaries also visit to discuss their programs and answer questions.

Our guidance departments don’t stop upon admission. We aspire to grow our students’ Torah learning and education as a lifelong endeavor. Our guidance continues long after graduation, with many of our faculty offering students weekly chaburot, shiurim in their homes, advice, direction and always, support.
