You grew up in a sheltered home and environment, and spent your school years in the same manner. Thirteen, fourteen, and maybe even more years, you were constantly surrounded by warm friends, family, caring teachers, and familiar faces. Your seminary experience left you with a spiritual high, feeling on top of the world…and then suddenly it’s all over. You find yourself not only on your own as independent young adult, but you also realize that maintaining that spiritual high from seminary is a mission left up to you and you alone. Will you be able to handle the world and everything the challenges that come with it while still growing spiritually? You find yourself having to decide how you will continue growing. Will you reluctantly join the ranks of Chabad lite growing among our youth?
So seminary is over. Now what? Is that the end of formal chassidishe Chinuch? Is there any post seminary level education to be pursued? Is the protective cocoon you were in since childhood, the community, friendships, social life, farbrengens, and fun all gone forever?! You suddenly feel lost and don’t know where you will eat for Shabbos, where you will hear Havdalah, which shul you belong to and feel comfortable davening in?
Is there any chassidishe place to pursue vocational training within the Chabad community? Is there any school where one can study and get training in the many aspects of shlichus: both practical and theoretical?! And alternatively, are there choices of chassidus, halacha and inspirational classes I can join to keep my level of yiddishkeit and not chas veshalom slip? Is there any available support in shidduchim, mashpiim and guidance until I get married? These are all questions that might be flooding your mind…but there’s an answer!
Michlelet Chana, a school created especially for post seminary girls, is your solution if you want to gently ease yourself into such a big change- from sheltered to independent but not alone. With some assistance and a hand guiding you from behind the scenes, you don’t have to feel isolated in such a vibrant community. By joining other Michlelet Chana students, you can make new friends, live in a warm and safe apartment, have tons of shiurim and farbrengens to attend to help you continue or even rediscover your spiritual high, and meet new families over Shabbos.
