Go to Levi Yitzchok Library every Tuesday at PM and your spiritual uplift will continue.
The classes are geared to girls just like you.

I too had pssd, I was on such a high from all the intense spirituality that we were “in”… l wanted to replicate the experience but on day to day life it just doesn’t work. The question is if this type of chasidishkeit for girls is not practical why do we cater such type of intense chasidishkeit in high school/seminary? All that remains for me from all this is confusion.

Best weekends ever!

So true! Wow i can really relate… now that i am bh married with a few kids kh.. i am still dreaming about going back to seminary. Why isnt there a seminary for women who are still young and still yearn for a spiritual education? Being in israel really added a lot to my spiritual connection to the Rebbe and Hashem obviously. But when i came back to Crown Heights… suddenly the world crashed before my eyes! its full of Gashmiusdikeh stuff!

One of my dorm mates put it so beautifully in the beginning of Sem Alef: “Seminary is the Tishrei of your life!” We’re not meant to stay in that spiritual “bubble” forever–it’s intense but short-term, because the goal is to draw on that inspiration in our daily lives from then on. I have seen how vital it is–and, sadly, how ungrounded the girls who don’t go become–but it should be a catalyst for lifelong learning (including textual!) and personal growth.
