Anyone know about the college/school for post high school girls in Ofakim, Israel?

Any information you could give me would be appreciated.

Don't tell me you're considering Ofakim :blink: Gosh, you really changed since the last time I saw you...
PM me if you have any questions about Ofakim or if you're interested in meeting anyone who learned there. Come to think of it, you already know someone, whatever, get in touch with me...

I am considering ofakim. Do I know you, greentiger? Who are you? PM me with info about who you are. I have changed, people tell me.
I have questions about ofakim- is it a seminary? College? School that gives a certificate for something?
What type of girls go there?
Anyone with info, either PM me or reply in this thread. Pleats, BigToe, AND Greentiger.

It's Seminary and College, they have quite alot of options for the chol but you need to learn teaching. The kodesh is said to be very good, maybe you can go for a shabbos to check it out.

I know a lot of ppl who went there.it's very charedi though i heard that they treat the non-isralis diffrently .
I also heard that it changed a lot in the past few years and became even more charedi so don't count too much on opinions of former students the past.
I know a few ppl - American Israeli- that are there now and enjoy it a lot .it was hard for them in the begining but they enjoy it now.
I don't know ,I wouldn't go there -way too frum and closed-minded for me( and i'm very frum).it's just that i can't take rules about dressing and thinking.I always feel like I can't be myself in these kind of places.

The degree they give you is not the best...so if you go there for the degree- think again.
It's also far away from everything...when they want to go out they go shopping for food...if you can live like this...

Bottom line- you have to be a certain type of a person to enjoy it , very normal.
i'm not brainwashed.

Tell that to my mom and dad. They dont want me to get married and not get a degree. So even if its a bad degree, stav, its not what matters. As long as its some degree they're fine with it.

It might be closedminded and very strict, but thats the kind of place I want.

Might I ask why? Haven't you posted that you like the seminary that you're in because of it's openmindedness?

That is true. But my definition of openminded is quite different from others. I think my seminary is openminded, yet most people think its closedminded. So I would assume that makes me closedminded and I would probably be happy in a place that others call closedminded- because I would call it openminded.

Then again, what was good for me this year isnt what I neccesarily want for next year. I happen to think my sem is a little too openminded, but it was what I needed to get me to where I am now. I dont neccesarily want a place like where I am now for next year.

Where are you this year?

I think the prudent question is where have you been?

Nice to meet you by the way.

I don't think your first paragraph is that logical.

Why? I happen to find myself most comfortable in places labeled "closedminded". I don't see them as such, but others do. Consequently, I probably would appreciate a place labeled as "closedminded". Get it now?
