I was looking forward to my Israel year ever since 4th grade (after I gave up the idea that I wanted to be a senior kallah)

1)every additional year that i've lived with new roommates, i've become increasingly chilled out and learned to live with all types of things and see how people are so different in their little day-to-day lives... very much so in seminary because it is the first time a lot of the girls are living away from home, and the dorm is hefker, and very immature
2)i have a couple of role models from israel (and while i may not be like them, esther had to try to be like sara eimeinu in order to be the best esther)
3) increased LOVE of torah! of people who follow the torah as the FOCUS of their life!
4)increased bitachon (for sure!) and awareness that Hashem is with you and will make things work out
5)i know where to buy the best rugalech (marzipan!)
6)it made me more refined
7)i learn a lot more now, post-seminary, on my own (even from a hebrew sefer but with a chavrusah)
8)I am a more torah filled person, and so I am more confident to give over torah to others, but in general there is a pride in knowing that b"H i have learned so much in my Jewish schooling (and of course and intense amount in Israel)
9)love of the land

It is currently open this year, its first year.
Is it currently open this year or is it opening for the coming year?
I haven't got the hock about how its going yet this year, but the good news about it is that it won't fold, Rabbi Kurland's schools are well established and have good teachers. Rabbi Margolin was very excited about it because he says its everything Darchei Binah girls have plus better but I think the whole idea is weird: Many of the Darchei Binah teachers specificly like teaching there because its strong frum school but not Bais Yaakov (I mean I think its a little Bais Yaacovy but whatever) so they could say what they wanted and the girls not only think, but ask good questions.

from their internet site:
When a child starts balding...
One of the most serious emotional hardships that children with cancer have to deal with comes when their hair falls out as a result of chemotherapy. At this point, the children begin to look very different from what they were used to and some respond very badly. In some cases, it is the “straw that breaks the camel’s back.” The children are ashamed to spend time with their friends. “The looks and whispers behind our backs are the worst of all,” say the children candidly.
To minimize the difficulties, Zichron Menachem arranges a temporary replacement for the children and a staff of trained professionals comes to fit a wig for each boy or girl that wants one.

Does anyone know how much a car service would cost?
Or (regarding the way back) does anyone know any business people that go to work in Newark very early?

I'v decided on career change and I'm currently looking for a position in the customs broker industry. I feel this would be an outstanding opportunity for me considering my understanding of world affairs, my travels to foreign lands, my great business acumen and interpersonal skills, and last but not least my attention to detail.
I currently work as a desk based sales rep selling product to many of the largest wholesalers and distributors in the country and have, against all odds, successfully raised sales in a precipitously declining industry.
I hold a Masters of Business Administratin with a focus on International Business from the University of Baltimore and a Bachelor of Arts - Talmudic Law from the Ner Israel Rabbinical College. I also completed a joint summer program with the University of Peru at Lima.
I am fluent in English, Yiddish and Hebrew.
too bad you are too old for me lol
