It's possible Matan would accept her into one of their programs or she could just take lots of the courses there. They have lots of high level courses.

OOC, what's her objection to dorming?

If it's wanting more privacy and room space, maybe she'd like Amudim in Modi'in (no relationship to the NY organization). https://www.amudimisrael.org/

Hi I recommend you and your daughter check out Shiviti -- I think it might be just what she is looking for!

Most of Matan's programmes require a degree and some background in serious learning. They are not meant as a post high school programme.

If she’s high level and has a place to stay in Israel maybe she can enrol at the Israeli program at Migdal Oz or Lindenbaum that would be less restrictive and she could go “home” most weekends.

She's taking a gap year this coming year, before going to Israel? What's she going to be doing?

I agree with the others that she'll be losing out by not dorming. Nishmat is probably the most flexible of the serious gemara programs when it comes to having students doing something else aside from full-time learning. She may be able to work something out with Lindenbaum or Migdal Oz, but she'd have to convince them it's worth investing in a student who's not interested in investing in them.

Something else I just realized that I should point out, applications were due 3 weeks ago, the interviews have started, and these schools are competitive to get in to. I’m not saying that she is not more than worthy of a seat, but as I bolded above, there are many great, hard core, serious about learning Gemara girls and she is going to have to show them why they want her.

I don't have any info for you, but your DD sounds like a really special person.

You're being a great mom for taking her wishes and personality into consideration, and not trying to shove her into a box.

You've got a lot to be proud of! Applause

Yes, but not all. They have a full course load which anyone can sign up for and choose what they want to take. When I was there, they did allow a pre-army, recent high school graduate to be in one of the more intensive general learning programs.

It wouldn't be a social experience, but it would allow her to learn on a high level without dorming.
