Dd isn’t sure she wants to go to seminary but she really would love to spend time in Israel next year. Are there any other options? Maybe some sort of course, trade school? Would need a dorm for her or a dira option like the boys in the mir have.

Sherut leumi (national service).
Maybe others here can help out with how to go about finding out about sheirut leumi options.

What about doing college in israel?

There are options for foreign students doing gap year

Sherut leumi can also be an option

Whys don't u look into options on the Masa website?

The masa website looks interesting. My dd goes to semi BY type school and wondering if all these other programs are extremely modern or non religious.

Does she want to study something?
If she doesn't want to go to seminary, is that because she doesn't want to spend the year studying, or she doesn't want only limudei kodesh?

Does she speak and understand Hebrew?
Michlala in Jerusalem has and Israeli program where you can get a teaching degree.

If she were to do sherut leumi, she could end up with very chilled, modern girls, but she could get very good serious girls. You cannot know who you'll end up in an apartment with.

You could look into the English speaking program at Machon Tal. It's college and is highly subsidized. And all frum.

She’s more chilled and doesn’t want a lot of limudei kodesh subjects. She’s a frum girl and doesn’t mind starting colllege there just doesn’t want Chumash, Navi,Tehillim for most of the day. She’s also very artistic and would rather start learning something for life than extend high school type learning another year.

This is a seminary, but not exclusively focused on Jewish learning. Might they work for her?

Was just about to recommend this.

My friend went there and she loved it.

I was thinking about emunah vomanut but I am not sure it is for a "semi-BY" girl.

Tx. That place may be something to look into. We are a heimesh family in the tristat area so she’s used to that sort of lifestyle but would like something a bit more open minded. She speaks English a bit of Yiddish and understands Hebrew and Yiddish.

There is an art program with some Seminary courses called "Emunah ve Omnut." My daughter's friend went there and had a wonderful year.
