Machon Maayan 2018-2019
Why did you choose Machon Maayan?
I chose to attend Machon Maayan because I wanted a seminary that is unique in its student body. I love that we have girls of different backgrounds and I love learning new different perspectives from everybody.
If you could pick one thing to change in the world, what would it be?
If I could change one thing in this world, I would pick intolerance. I would love to see a world where people practiced being more tolerant and accepting of others and their differences.
What’s your favorite family tradition?
When I was younger, on Sundays, my parents would wake up my brother and I very early in the morning when it wa still dark out, and we would make hot cocoa and sit on our front porch in our pajamas and watch the nature outside our house. We would see foxes, and sometimes an owl, and we would watch the sunrise. I loved this childhood tradition!
Name three things in your current life that bring you great joy.
Three things in my life that currently bring me great joy are my family and friends, when I have a really good day of learning, and Rav Bramson’s jokes.
