NECHAMAS BAKERY began in the 1910s by our
great-grandpa David Nechama. Grandpa David had two
rules above all else. The customer comes rst, and, All
dough must be made with love. These rules have been
the trademark of Nechamas Bakery since that time.
When you enter a Nechama Bakery you feel a family
warmth, as all our bakeries are still family run. Come
visit us at our six dierent locations throughout
Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh.
Visit your local Nechamas
and try our extensive array of baked goods
including: fresh breads (white and whole
wheat), pastries, rugelach, cinnamon
buns, apple strudel, cookies, challahs,
birthday cakes, pies, quiches, and some
of the nest sandwiches made on our
freshly baked rolls.

Welcome Page
Hello and welcome to Eretz Yisroel, the land that the Creator-of-the-World calls
home. We are the Yeshiva and Seminary Students Guide, and we are dedicated
to helping you acclimate to your surroundings here in Israel.
Israel is in some ways similar to your home town, but in so many important
ways, it is very different. Consequently, your year here will be both exhilarating
and potentially complicated. When you add the fact that many of you are
on your own for the frst time, You may fnd yourself faced with situations
that, with some advice, could be made less diffcult. We have tried to compile
the most comprehensive guide to assist you throughout your year. However,
things in Israel change constantly. If there is an important area not covered in
this guide or any subject on which you would like (more) information, please
feel free to contact us.
Be aware that when you frst arrive you might feel homesick and wonder if
you made a mistake. This is certainly normal and others in your school may be
feeling the same. Approach fellow students or staff and create relationships.
This will help you become more comfortable with your surroundings. Its
particularly important to get suffcient sleep during the frst week or two
in school. This will help you adjust more easily and feel
much better. Although teenagers believe they are able
to survive with little to no sleep, those who do sleep
properly will likely feel more energetic, cheerful and
adjust much more quickly. Remember, when you left
home you wanted to come to Eretz Yisroel for a year
(or more) to grow. Dont let the frst few diffcult
weeks get you down!
If we can help you in any way
please feel free to contact us at:

Hebrew 101
Knowing how to speak Hebrew might help you get what you need as well as help you make
friends with the natives. You might also have family friends that you want to impress with
your vast knowledge of the Hebrew language. However there are some phrases that are more
important than others. Knowing how to say, Where is the bathroom (Eifo hasheirutim?)
? might just be the most important phrase that you will learn this year, but
it wont help you when you are trying to buy a bus ticket (kama oleh cartisia
?) Then there are some phrases you might never have a chance to use in conversation
like there are pink elephants dancing in the street Peelim vroodeeim merakdim bakvish
. But no matter how much Hebrew you pick up its good to
know that when you are ordering two sheiruts from the airport you dont ask for sheirutim
even though it sounds sensible to you (its Shnei moniyot sheirut). Have fun learning the
language, you might actually fnd that it helps you in some situations, but in an emergency
just say the word in English slowly and with an Israeli accent and they will probably
understand you.

Arranging a Dira
If the housing in your school is pre-arranged (i.e. school run apartments, dorms etc.) consider
yourself lucky. If however you are attending a yeshiva where you are expected to arrange
your own living quarters, there are some things you might want to know before making any
arrangements. Some things youll want to know when choosing an apartment (Dira) are:
Who will your dira-mates be? Are they neat (yeah, right)? Are they serious guys or do they
enjoy late nights with loud music?
How much will the dira cost you?
Are utilities included? Do we have to split the utilities and how is payment arranged?
Is there heat/air-conditioning
Location Location Location? Is it very close to Yeshiva? Is it in a noisy area? Are there issues
with the neighbors?
Be aware that in many apartment situations you can switch apartments when you need to.
So if you end up in a less than desirable apartment you can leave. It is a good idea however to
try to fnd a good dira before you get on the plane since the good diras are often taken early.
HOW TO FIND A DIRA.
The dira situation can be complicated, but knowing
some basic ideas will help you get on your way.
Many diras are inhabited by bochurim who came
from the same Yeshiva in America. There are WITS
diras and Ner Yisroel diras and Darchei diras etc...
If bochurim from your yeshiva are in the yeshiva
you are planning on attending you should
fnd a way to contact them in their dira as the
dira may very well be reserved for graduates
of your yeshiva. If you cannot fnd a place in the
dira or you would like other options there are some
people who take care of numerous diras and can let
you know if there will be space available for you. One
of these people is Gershon Levy whose can be reached
at (050)419-3319. Many bochurim prefer to fnd a dira
when they are already in Israel. This can be complicated
since you will need a place to stay until you fnd a dira. If you have a friend or family member
with whom you can stay for a few days you can count on seeing signs in your yeshiva listing
available beds in apartments. Good luck in fnding a good dira. As they say, Finding the right
dira can be the difference between a good zman and a great one.

Recommended Reading List
While you are in Yeshiva / Seminary there are certain books that you might want to familiarize
yourself with. However you might only nd out about them after you have been in school for
a while and then might not know how to get them. Below are some books / seforim that we
thought that you might want to buy in order to be well rounded in the world of Jewish texts.
MESILAS YESHARIM In this, one of the most basic seforim of Hashkafah, Rav Moshe
Chaim Luzzato (Ramchal) lays out the purpose of man in this world and how to achieve
greatness and grow as a jew. Quite possibly the most important sefer youll ever learn. The
Vilna Gaon stated that he could not fnd in the frst 3 chapters of Mesilas Yesharim, one extra
word that was not extremely necessary. (also translated into English)
DERECH HASHEM Also written by the Ramchal, Sefer Derech Hash-m discusses
the purpose of creation and how the Torah and mitzvos ft into that purpose. Without
understanding certain basic concepts laid out in this sefer, it is diffcult to understand how
one could serve Hash-m properly. (also translated into English)
PERMISSION TO RECEIVE Written by Rabbi Leib Kelemen, is collection of 4 essays each
relating rational discussion as to the existence of G-d. If you are the type of person who likes
to question or gets into conversation with people who dont believe in Hash-ms existence
this book can help you formulate your thoughts and arguments. (English)
STRIVE FOR TRUTH A translation of many of the great essays from the Sefer Michtav
MeiEliyahu, Strive for Truth discusses some of the most important topics necessary for being
a good Jew. (English)
SHEARIM BETEFILLAH One of the deepest seforim on building a relationship with
Hashem through tefllah. Written by Rav Shimshon Pinkus, searim Btefllah is a must for
anyone who want to properly understand the purpose of tefllah and how it connects them
to Hash-m. (Hebrew)
SHABBOS MALKESA By: Rav Shimshon Pinkus. Youve lived more than 900 Shabbosim, if
you still think the purpose that Hash-m made Shabbos was for rest, you really need to learn
this sefer. One of the most important seforim on the importance of Shabbos, I guarantee you
Shabbos will be completely different when you begin to learn this sefer. (A similar book taken
from Rav Pinkus Shiurim is available in English called Nefesh Shimshon: Shabbos Kodesh)
SEFER CHOFETZ CHAIM The frst and foremost book of its kind. The Chofetz Chaim (Rav
Yisroel Meir Kagan) arranges all of the halachos of Lashon harah in a clear and concise format.
Since lashon harah is the reason we are living without a Beis Hamikdash, as the chofetz
chaim points out, it is therefore through this mitvah that we will merit the rebuilding of the
Third and fnal Beis Hamikdash.
IGGERES HARAMBAN (Letter for the Ages) The letter the Ramban wrote to his son
to instill in him the most important concept on how to live properly as a Jew. Many of the
concepts in the letter must be expounded on to understand them fully. (also translated into
English)
This is obviously not an exhaustive list but just a list of some books to get you started on your
trek to building a relationship with the Almightly. I guarantee if you read these book you WILL
become a different person completely.

Losing Stuff in Israel
Im like the rest of you, I dont really think Ill ever lose anything. Therefore I dont write my
name on any of my belongings. Until now that is, thanks to this story. On Lag Baomer I
took my kids out to the neighborhood bonfre. As we walked around, I apparently placed
my camera somewhere without realizing. When I returned home I realized that the camera
was missing. I retraced my steps but to no avail; the camera was gone. I begrudgingly put up
some signs around the neighborhood confdent that I would probably not see the camera
again, for even if the fnder would want to look through the pictures, who says they would
recognize my cute little children.
About 1 week later I received a call, Hello, is this the Fulds? Yes, I replied. To which the
caller asked if I had lost a camera. I frst wondered how the fnder had known my name,
when it became clear that because of an issue that I had had with my bank I was forced to
take a picture of my passport and send it to the bank. The camera fnder saw my passport
looked me up in the phonebook and found me. You can be sure when I got my camera back
I wrote my name and number on the casing. I realized then how easy it is to make sure you
dont lose stuff.
WAYS TO NOT LOSE YOUR STUFF
1. Write your name, school name, and cellphone number on a small piece of paper and take
a picture of it with your camera.
2. Put the same piece of paper in your tefllin bag / purse.
3. Write your phone number on your credit card / Rav Kav card
4. Photocopy front and back of all of your important cards so even if you lose them you can
have the number to cancel credit cards etc.
EGGED LOST AND FOUND
If you forgot something on a bus or in the
Tachanah Merkazit it might have made its
way to the Egged lost and found department.
You can call them at (02)530-4999 between
9am-1pm and 2pm-3:30pm make sure to tell
them where you lost it since there are other
lost and founds and your lost article might be
somewhere else.
SEGULAH TO FIND A LOST OBJECT
Take out some money and set it aside to give
to tzedakah and say the following:

, "
,

For any item big or small which is lost or found anywhere in Eretz Yisroel
call the "
(Countrywide Lost and Found Information Center) at
Take part in the precious mitzvah of the mitzvah
of returning a lost object to its owner.

The fruit that the meraglim brought back from Eretz Yisroel was immense.
Most things from those times have shrunk to the size we are familiar with
today. Most things, that is except the jukes. Welcome to Israel where the
cockroaches are HUGE! Hopefully, you will not see even one juke during your stay here, but
in case you do, here is some basic information you ought to know to help you to handle a
juke encounter.
Jukes do not bite and are completely harmless.
Jukes love dark places so if you chase them they will try to fnd a dark place to hide from you
Always have a can of juke spray handy. It is available in any supermarket or makolet and is
called K-300.
If a juke dares to appear while you are around just grab your can of spray and let the little
guy have it. You dont need to empty the whole can on one juke, it will die with just one
spray, but you can if it makes you feel better.
I once heard from someone that if there is a pest (bug, y, roach etc) in your vicinity and
you want to remain relaxed you should give the pest a name. For example, when a y comes
into your room while you are trying to learn and begins to buzz around your head just name
him any name you like (ex. Shloimy, or Chaim etc.). This will allow you to stay calm long
enough to get your can of roach spray and douse the little guy until hes on his back in a pool
of poison.
Ants
For those of you who have encountered ants in your dorm/apartment you should be aware
that ants love to eat. If you have crumbs or sticky food on your oors ants that live in the
walls of your building will come into your room to partake in your seudah.
Remember:
Clean all food off oors and counters.
To prevent ants from entering your dorm
you can purchase a can of ant spray in
you local makolet. Or you can sprinkle
cinnamon on the problem area which will
keep the ants away. In addition to this
being a healthier choice, it will also give
your dorm a nice pleasant smell.

Gevina levana, which is soft spreadable cheese, comes in containers that look
similar to cottage cheese containers. Cottage cheese is called cottage
Milk bags are often covered in milk dont bag them with your eishig groceries.
Hebrew writing doesnt equal Kosher.
Chareidi men will not sit next to women on the bus. If you are a woman and
there are two men sitting in two separate rows, you can ask them to sit together,
So that you could sit down.
Some buses are called mehadrin. This means that they are seperated and
women sit in the back section of the bus.
Many chareidi men will not walk between two women and therefore it is is
proper to allow a man to walk around you, or if you are in a store, to allow the
man to walk by
The people in israel are different from you in many ways even though they are
similar in so many others.
Sometimes the identical product may be manufactured with and without the
Hechsher! Check that all your products bear a Hechsher.
Ice cream comes in Pareve and dairy versions; however the packaging often
looks exactly the same. Make sure you look for the little marking saying Chalavi
or Pareve on the box.
Margarine and butter packages look similar in Israel. Make sure the margarine
you are buying is Pareve!
Be aware of products that might contain Kitniyos around Pesach time.
Restaurants will sometimes change Hechsherim overnight! Check with the
restaurant to be sure they still have the Hechsher you want.
An additional Borechu is said at the end of every Shacharis that does not have
Krias Hatorah, and at the end of every Maariv.
The paragraphs of Boruch Hashem LeOlam before Shemoneh Esrei in Maariv
are not said.
The minhag in yerushalayim is to not wear tefllin during chol hamoed. Even if
you normally do so back home according to most poskim you would not here.
In Israel, we begin to say Vesein Tal Umatar beginning from the seventh day
of Cheshvan.
Kohanim duchen every day and twice when there is musaf.

Doing Laundry/Dry-cleaning
When the Jews were in the midbar, the Ananei Hakavod kept their clothing clean and pressed,
but today since we do not have the Ananei Hakavod you will need to do laundry in order to
have clean clothes. Your Yeshiva or Seminary might take care of all of your laundry needs, and
if they do, consider yourself fortunate. But if they dont, you will have to arrange it yourself.
You can always make massive laundry bags and send them home to your mother and she
can send you freshly laundered clothing with the next person she knows coming to Israel.
But for the rest of you who actually need to do your own laundry, it is important to know
your options.
Many drycleaners will launder your clothing and fold it for you for a fee. This might make
your life a little easier depending on how much money you have and how close the nearest
drycleaners is.
If you are expected to do laundry yourself most likely your school will have a machine where
you can do your own laundry. However, you should realize that you are sharing the machine
with all of the rest of the students in your school. If you leave your laundry for too long it will
most likely get moved and you may lose some of your belongings. Be considerate and be on
top of your laundry situation.
You might be able to arrange to do your laundry at the home of a family. Many students
trade helping out a family or babysitting for the use of their washing machine.
DRY-CLEANING
Many students are very concerned with
doing their dry-cleaning in Israel, and for
good reason. Its not fun sending your
brand new wool suit into the cleaners
only to have it come out shiny. There are
many drycleaners in Israel, and although
the profession has improved over the
years it is very wise to send your dry-
clean only clothing to a cleaner that is
known to be reputable and doesnt ruin
clothing, or will take responsibility if they
do. Many drycleaners have arrangements
with schools where they will pick up your
cleaning and return it to your school. If your school has such an arrangement, consider
yourself lucky. If they dont, you can approach a dry-cleaner and offer to arrange the dry-
cleaning in your school in return for a discount on your dry-cleaning. Hapisga cleaners in
the past and have found them to be a reputable cleaning company.

Seforim
You may never have believed that your favorite place to be would be a seforim store.
However many Bachurim and Bachurettes nd themselves drawn to buying seforim
on a constant basis. Perhaps your Rebbe / Teacher mentioned a book and you think it
would be great for you to learn or perhaps you just want to learn more about a certain
subject or you simply want to build up your library. Whatever the reason, you might
have realized that the prices of seforim in Israel are usually a lot less expensive than
in Chutz Laaretz. So, even if youre not planning on using a specic sefer this year, it
might be worthwhile to buy it while youre here to take advantage of the great prices
and selection. If you didnt bring the seforim you need from home, you can easily get
those seforim here in Eretz Yisroel.
BOOK SALES
A few times a year there are book sales in all the seforim stores where the seforim are
lessexpensive. Certain publishers like Artscroll, Feldheim and Mossad Harav Kook offer
discounts that are available in all the stores. The sales are usually around Chanuka and
after Shavuos. If you plan on making a large seforim purchase and you dont need the
seforim right away, it might be worthwhile to wait for the sales.
WHY SHOULD I BUY SO MANY SEFORIM IF I CANT GET THEM
BACK HOME?
Au contraire mon frare. (Trans. on the contrary my dear friend) Some of the seforim
stores have set up a system where if you buy a certain amount of seforim from their
store they will ship them back home for you. Ask in your favorite seforim store to nd
out if they will be able to help you get your books home at the end of the year.
GETTING V.A.T. BACK
In Israel there is a 16% sales tax called V.A.T. (value added tax). (in Hebrew it is referred
to as Maam (pronounced mom) which is applied to most products you buy. When you
purchase gift items valued at over $100 and you plan to bring the item back home

when you leave Israel, the seller can give you a special receipt with which you can
receive a refund of the amount you spent on the V.A.T. If you are on a tourist visa and
you plan to buy a lot of seforim, it is worthwhile to keep your receipts and when you
are planning to go back home, bring your receipts to the store where you bought the
books and ask for a V.A.T. receipt. Check with your bookstore before you start to check
that they will do this for you. Then bring your receipt to the airport to the V.A.T. desk
and they will refund your money. This is very worthwhile since the money adds up. For
example: if you spent $300 dollars on seforim youll get $48 back from V.A.T.
Note: V.A.T. refunds are only given for people holding a tourist visa. So if you are here
for a short time or someone is coming to visit they can take advantage of this law.
APPLIANCES
The electric current in America is 110 volts while in Israel it
is twice as strong at 220 volts. Therefore if you plug in your
American appliance here it will get too much electricity and
blow. Chaval! If you have brought an electrical appliance from
America you will probably require a converter in order to safely use
it here. Before you plug in anything that you brought from Chutz
Laaretz ask someone if it needs a converter. It would be a shame to
burn out your electrical items just because you didnt ask. However,
it is much wiser to buy your appliances here. Many stores offer discounts to yeshiva
and seminary students. Some stores have prices on their products and others dont. It
is generally safer to buy things in stores which list their prices as others might inate
their prices depending on if they think they can get more from you sounds unfair?
Welcome to Israeli business. If you like to hondle here is a great pace to do it.
Realize that many stores charge higher prices since they know people will hondle.
Also, since so many stores are competing for the same business they will lower their
prices very quickly. Some hondling techniques are: 1)Decide how much you would
pay for a product before you walk into the store and tell the store owner that is how
much you are willing to pay. 2)Begin leaving the store. Many store owners will throw
out a lower price to get you to reevaluate the purchase. 3)Say I have to think about
it. This will help them lower their prices to encourage you to buy from them. You will
generally only be able to hondle with an owner of a store. Workers usually cant
lower the prices so dont waste your time.
When purchasing appliances be aware of the stores return policy and warranty. The
policies in Israel are very different from in America. This is just the way business is
run here. Most stores will not refund your money even with a receipt. They will only
offer a store credit, and even that, after some arguing. Save yourself heartache and
understand how things work here before you get frustrated trying to return something
that the store wont take back.

ADAPTER VS. CONVERTER - An adapter is a small plug that you use to adapt
the shape of the plug while not converting the electricity. They are used for many
things including computers, most chargers, some shavers. They cost around 5 shekel.
Converters convert the electric current and are used for most products including
Many hair irons, many blowdryers, most machines motors etc. Rule: Ask Before You
Plug It In.
You might want to purchase some appliances with others so they will cost you less.
Some appliances you might want to chip in together to buy: Toaster over, Sandwich
maker, Foreman style grill, hairdryer, iron, speakers.
BUYING GIFTS
Remember when Aunt Shani went to Israel and brought you back a little trinket. Remember
how happy you were. Buying gifts is an art and does not need to be an expensive one. We
live in a world where most people we know, have everything they need. The purpose of a gift
is not to spend a lot of money so the recipient will look at the price tag and thank you for
how much money you spent on them. A gift is meant to show the receiver how much you
thought of them. It is true that sometimes a pricier gift is more appropriate such as when
a whole class chips-in to buy a gift for a teacher. But when you are buying gifts for family
members for your return home or for gracious people who host you for Shabbos or for the
family for whom you do chessed or even for your close friends birthday, you can, with a little
bit of research, get really cute inexpensive gifts that mean a lot.
PURCHASING GIFTS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS
Since you are in Israel, the Judaica capital of the world, you might
be asked by family members or friends to arrange gifts for an
upcoming simcha. Getting the right gift can be complicated
but going to the right place can help the process go much
smoother. A very popular gift item is, leather bound
Seforim / Machzorim (you might even want to buy for
yourself). However it is important to know that not
all leather bindings are created equal. Leather binding
is a professional craft that can keep seforim looking
beautiful for generations to come. Buying your leather
bound gift from the right place can make all of the
difference.

Recognizing the currency in any foreign country can take a little getting used to. Israel is no
different. The coins and bills listed on the next page are the currency in use in Israel now. The
exchange rate changes every day but over the past few years has hovered between 3 and 4
shekel per dollar. This is pretty helpful because it makes it easier to approximate how much
something costs in dollars. Each shekel equals about a Quarter. The approximate value of
each denomination has been listed, although this information changes slightly every day.
CHANGING MONEY
You can call 02-373-2000 to fnd out the Shaar Yetzig which is the exchange rate for all
currencies compared to the shekel. No money changer will give you the exact rate, although
some will give you closer than others. Find out from friends and teachers where the best
place to change money is so that you dont get ripped off. Money changers take a fee when
you change checks. The fee is, different by different money changers and depending on
the value of the check. Find out who will give you the best rate as you will be probably be
changing a lot of money here. In some stores you can pay with dollars but most people who
will accept your dollars will take a larger fee than the change places since they dont work with
the exchange rate all of the time. Therefore, it is preferable to change money before buying
things or taking cabs etcIn many neighborhoods there are people who change money from
their homes. They often give a better rate than the stores and are often more convenient to
get to. Ask around. Aside from all of the offcial money changers you can change your money
at the bank or the post offce. However, they dont give you as good a rate. In many of the
change places, you can also receive bank transfers from your parents. Many schools have an
arrangement with a money changer who comes to the school to change money. Ask in your
school if they have such an arrangement as it could save you time and energy.

Budgeting
Some people come to Israel with an unlimited budget and are always going out and buying
things. If you are one of those people you probably dont need to look at this section. But if
you are not, it is a good idea to fgure out how to make your funds stretch further. During
your frst month in Israel you will most likely spend a lot of money because of your additional
settling in expenses. Keeping this in mind will help you keep track of your money and not
overspend unnecessarily.
HOW MUCH MONEY DO STUDENTS SPEND WEEKLY
DURING THEIR YEAR IN ISRAEL?
For most of you this will be your frst time taking care of your own fnances. Therefore, it is
a good idea to start learning how to maximize your income and make your dollar stretch
further. Keep in mind that there is no way to give an accurate monthly budget because there
are many different factors that defne each persons spending habits. If you are in a yeshiva
where the food is very good you will eat out less and if you are in a seminary where you have
your own fridge and kitchen you will be able to save a lot of money by making your own
meals. The Yeshiva and Seminary Students Guide conducted a study which found that on
average students of schools in Yerushalayim spend around 100-150 shekel ($28-$42) a week
or 400-600 shekel ($114-$171) a month. Keep in mind that these numbers may be slightly
higher in the frst month or two.
HOW CAN I FIND WAYS TO SAVE MONEY?
LAUNDRY/DRY-CLEANING
1. Do your laundry at a family/teachers house. Many teachers or people in your neighborhood
will avail their washing machines in exchange for babysitting or gan pickup.
2. Think before you clean. If its not dirty it doesnt necessarily need to go to the cleaners.
3. Buy wrinkle-free shirts to save money on dry-cleaning.
FOOD
1. Buy a loaf of white or whole wheat bread and put it in your freezer. Take out a few slices
when you feel hungry. It will thaw in a few minutes and taste as fresh as when you
put it in.
2. Get your body used to drinking water, and bring a water-bottle when
you go out. Fruit drinks and sodas can cost you a lot of money.
3. Eat more meals in school. Some schools serve good food, some
serve decent food, and some serve really bad food, but no matter
what, its better than eating Ptcha everyday.

4. American products tend to be more expensive in Israel. You can easily fnd an Israeli cereal
that you enjoy instead of always looking for your favorite American cereal.
5. Cream cheese is a great spread, but for some reason it is expensive in Israel. If you really like
cream cheese you can make it yourself. Take 1 container of Shamenet and put it in a strainer
for 24 hours, add 1/4 tsp. of salt for taste and youll have a lot of cream cheese for 2 shekel.
SHABBOS
1. When going away for Shabbos make sure to take the bus. It is almost always the least
expensive way to travel.
2. Buy less expensive host gifts. A package of Angels rugelach or a MAKs Cake are relatively
inexpensive and are a perfectly acceptable gift.
3. For those of you who are daring and have an oven why not make a tray of homemade
chocolate chip cookies? You can give most of them to your host and you can enjoy an erev
Shabbos treat.
TRAVEL
1. Take buses. The bus system in Israel is effcient for traveling within the city and outside the
city. Make sure to check out the Egged bus information found in this guide. Remember to
give yourself extra time since buses do take longer than cabs.
2. To save money on bus fare, purchase a round trip ticket. This ticket is called a Haloch
Vchazor and is available on most intercity buses. A cartisia or bus card can also be purchased
to save additional money on multiple rides to the same location.
GETTING OUT
1. Plan accordingly before you go out to minimize travel cost and frustration.
2. Go out with friends who are in a similar fnancial situation. It is easier to hang out with
people who are also trying to save money versus those whose parents have given them carte
blanche.
3. Buying food when you are away from school is generally going to cost you more than if
you bring your own food. (Tuna sandwich from home = 3 shekel, sandwich from a store=15-25
Shekel)
4. If you choose to go out to eat, decide how much you want to spend
before you go out.
MISCELLANEOUS
1. Ask a teacher or someone who works in your school, if there are
any jobs available for after school hours.
44
BUYING
STUFF
2. Dont carry around a lot of money when you go out.
3. When taking out money try to keep track of the date and amount. Pay attention how long
it takes you to spend it. When you keep track of your money you will spend more carefully.
4. Try to buy seforim/fan/heater/plastic-drawers from people who were in your school last
year.
5. There are so many ways to relax and have a good time that are inexpensive. Do research to
fnd cheap trips and hikes and remember to bring food along.
6. Think in shekalim not in dollars.
7. Ten shekel coins are worth about $2.50, but since theyre coins you are more apt to spend
them faster. Change that way of thinking. Coins are money too.
8. Prices in Israel are not always set. Some stores sell products signifcantly cheaper than
others. Research before you buy.
9. There have been many stories of thefts in Yeshivas and Seminaries. Make sure to take extra
precautions and dont let yourself be a victim.

FOOD FACTS
Hechsherim
Hechsherim in Israel can be complicated. In America most of us know which hechsherim we
can eat and which are not really kosher. However, in Israel many of us dont recognize the
kashrus symbols nor do we know how to make heads or tails of which ones are okay and
which ones are not. The following is a list of some of the major hechsherim in Eretz Yisroel.
This list does not imply the acceptability of the hechsher. To verify the acceptability of each
hechsher, take this list to a Rebbe / Teacher in your Yeshiva / seminary and ask them which
hechsherim are acceptable and which are not. This will also help you build a relationship with
a teacher in order that you will have someone to whom to ask your halachic shailos.
There are many other Hechsherim that are oating around. Being that the halachos
regarding food are much more stringent in Israel, any new hechsher with which you are not
familiar should be discussed with a Rebbe/teacher in your place of study to fnd out whether
or not you should eat that hechsher.
Note: The word Badatz stands for Beis Din Tzedek. It once referred to the hechsher from the
Eidah Hachareidis. However, today there are many companies who use the word badatz more
loosely and say that their food is badatz in order to get you to buy from them even though
the badatz that gives the hechsher on their store might be the badatz of the conservative
community.

FOOD FACTS
How To Make A Geshmake Chulent
Its not a secret that chulent plays a very important role in the life of a bachur. A geshmake
Thursday night chulent, a chulent shiur, a chulent tish, Friday night chulent, leftover chulent,
etc If you like chulent and you are not yet adept at fguring out how to reproduce this fne
heimishe delicacy we have done our best to simplify the process for you so you can enjoy
chulent at any given occasion.
Being in a yeshiva environment doesnt necessarily allow for measuring cups and other
kitchen amenities therefore we will assume that you are lacking any proper cooking
instruments.
Note: if you want to avoid having to clean your crockpot, buy crockpot liner bags so you can
cook your chulent and just throw out the dirty bag when youre done.
MEASUREMENTS
W-cup = Washing cup full
Cup = plain plastic disposable cup (does not necessarily have to be clean.)
Cap = bottle cap full
WHAT YOULL NEED

1) A good crockpot chulent must be prepared at least 12 hours before eating.
2) If the chulent is for Shabbos, ask your rebbe how to use a crockpot on Shabbos
3) Plug in the crockpot (and say Lkovod Shabbos Kodesh)
4) Turn on the crockpot (very important!!!).
5) Throw in all of the ingredients and make sure all of the ingredients are covered in water
6) Cover and let cook for at least 12 hours
7) Take a bowl every few hours and tell everyone, Im just making sure its good.
8) Tell everyone that you put beer/Coke/hot-chili-sauce/cheap Scotch, in your chulent. They
will think youre very cool.
CLEANING A CROCKPOT
There is a common misconception that crockpots have a self-cleaning option, and that if you
leave the crockpot with the crusty leftover chulent after Shabbos it will clean itself. However
after many years of extensive research we have discovered that after Shabbos someone has
to actually clean the pot.
To clean the pot:
1) Take out as much old crusty chulent as you can easily. (dont scrub too hard you
might get tired)
2) Place crockpot bowl (not the heating element) into the sink and fll with water and soap (1
W-cup water to each cap of soap)
3) Leave for as long as you feel you want to (or until you need to use the sink)
4) All of the dried up junk should come out easily and should be ready for a new chulent.

JERUSALEM BUSES
The bus system in Jerusalem has gone through some major changes in the past year. Most
bus lines have been redirected and had their numbers changed. The Rav Kav system has
been introduced to bring the payment system into the 21st century while making it much
easier to catch a bus, as it takes signifcantly longer for people to board a bus and the driver
to close the doors. The new Light Rail was introduced, which travels from all Arab areas into
the middle of town in order to allow the Arabs to also have a convenient transportation
system. As well as many other changes to make the lives of those living in Jerusalem more
convenient and livable. Thank G-d for monopolies. Although we assume the system will go
through many changes during the coming year. We have done our best to collect as much
relevant information on the bus system to help you get acclimated and allow you to travel
freely throughout Jerusalem and Israel while feeling like an Israeli.
RAV KAV
The Rav Kav system is the new, improved payment system for
buses and the Light Rail. There are two types of Rav Kav cards.
Personal and Anonymous.
FARES
Note: The offcial rule of the Rav Kav is that anyone who is not an Israeli Citizen cannot
receive any discounts on their Rav Kav. Therefore, unlike with the old system where a
student who was 17 could receive a child fare, today any student no matter what age would
be required to pay full fare.
A regular fare is for anyone from 18-65 years of age and all tourists. Regular fare for one ride
costs 6.60 and a 10 ride package costs 52.80 (5.28 per ride). When you receive your card
you should write phone number on it in case you lose it. You can use your card to pay for
others who travel with you. Make sure to tell the driver how many times you want to pay
for when you insert your card into the slot (1 person = paam echad, 2 people = paamayim)
When you board the bus, your Rav Kav will be programed with an 90 minute transfer. This
Personal Card (rst card is free)
Must be purchased from one of the Rav
Kav stations (see below)
Registered to you with your picture on it
Non-transferable (cant lend it to your
friend)
Can be loaded with a youth / student
fare
Insured (if you lose it and no one else
has used your card your new card will be
uploaded with the amount that was left
on your old card a new card costs 10)
Anonymous Card (card costs 5)
Not registered to you (no picture)
Transferable (lend to whomever you want)
Can only be loaded with a regular fare
Not insured (if you lose it you have to buy
a new one for 5)
According to Egged you are supposed to
be able to purchase an anonymous
Rav Kav from any bus driver, but as of
this printing this has not been put into
effect and you can only by one from the
Tachanah.

LIGHT RAIL (REKEVET HAKALAH)
The light rail otherwise known as the Rakevet Hakalah, is a trolley system that runs from
Pisgat Zev, along route no. 1 past the Old City, up Yaffo, past the Central Bus Station and down
Rechov Herzl. The purpose of the rail system is to ease traffc and create less air pollution in
the center of the city. Your Rav Kav will work on the train and you can transfer from train
to bus and back. Make sure to swipe your card by the sensors to validate your ride. If you
purchase a single ride ticket you must validate your ticket when you board the train. The
police have been aggressive in giving out tickets so beware.

There are many different bus companies
working throughout Israel. You might need
to use more than one company to get where
you need. If you are traveling to a city where
you will need info on more than one company
you can call *8787 or 072-258-8787 and fnd out
info on all bus and train companies working

Nefesh BNefeshs Guided Aliyah program allows US, Canadian, and British citizens currently
residing in Israel to make Aliyah from within the country while receiving the full array of
Nefesh BNefesh services. The Guided Aliyah process is convenient, fast and effcient,
allowing participants to avoid bureaucracy at the Israeli government offces.
Guided Aliyah has been increasing in popularity since its inception in 2004, and more people,
including Yeshiva and Seminary students, are taking advantage of the program each year.
Many students, who decide to make Israel their home, prefer Guided Aliyah for its wide array
of benefts and effortless process. Many students may be eligible to receive the entire basket
of Aliyah benefts offered to Olim as the less time one has resided in Israel before making
Aliyah, the more benefts one is eligible to receive. For more information on your eligibility,
contact Nefesh BNefeshs Guided Aliyah department.
Some of the major benefts of making Aliyah include free education, fnancial grants, and
other government incentives. The cost of education in Israel is signifcantly less than abroad,
and Olim receive free tuition or a considerable subsidy towards their Bachelors or Masters
degree. Olim also qualify for a number of additional benefts including rent subsidies, Arnona
discounts, free Ulpan, and more. Nefesh BNefesh Olim receive fnancial grants beyond the
absorption basket (Sal Klita) provided by the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption (Misrad
Haklita). Many students who opt for Guided Aliyah receive fnancial grants as it is awarded
on a needs basis.
Yeshiva and seminary students are uniquely positioned to take advantage of Guided Aliyah
and the benefts it has to offer, and there is no time like the present to begin the process.

feel like getting out. Knowing which bus to take, will save you a lot of time and energy. The
following is a list of (Mostly from Yerushalayim) that will take you throughout the country.
Some of the routes change from time to time and therefore it is always good to call *2800

GETTING

Taxis
Taxis in Israel are white and they have a yellow dome light on top. A taxi in Israel is called a
Monit. Most taxis have a placard in their front window letting you know to which company
they belong. It is a good idea to pay attention to the placard before you enter the taxi for a few
reasons.
If there is no placard or the placard is of a company you dont recognize you might not want
to get in the cab.
If you forgot something in the cab you can call the company and they will try to help you get
it back.
Some taxi companies are careful to only hire Jews.
HOW TO HAIL A MONIT
There are two ways to get a taxi (monit)
Flag one down on the street. (might take more time unless you are in a busy area or if you
daven. Also might not be a driver with whom you want to travel) This is done by sticking
your fnger slightly away from your body toward the street as the taxi is passing by. Watch how
the natives do it. Sometimes a cab will not pick you up because he simply doesnt feel like it.
Dont be insulted, it happens to the best of us.
Order from a company for an additional charge of 4.70 NIS (safer and more effcient). When
you order a taxi you will hear the dispatcher mumble over the phone. Just say monit L..
(where you are) hell mumble again and your taxi will be on its way. If you can pay attention
to the second mumble it is worthwhile since sometimes hell say sholeach, which means a
taxi is coming soon or hell say eser dakot Means you wont be getting a cab for another ten
minutes. If you called a cab and a cab from another company arrives before your cab you should
not take it, as you will have caused the other cab to come get you for no reason.
Bar Ilan Taxi is a very good company to use if you will be ordering a taxi for a few reasons. 1. They
use only Jewish drivers 2. They are dependable 3. They dont charge the extra 4.70 shekel fee
when you order a cab.
Its hard being a taxi driver. Try to be nice and pleasant when you ride, but dont under any
circumstances give or lend any driver extra money because he told you a sob story about his
sick wife or kids etcmany Israelis have learned that Americans are rich and very nice and if you
make them feel bad theyll give you some of their money.
The driver is required to turn on the meter called a moneh, when he drives. If he does not
turn on the moneh make sure you have agreed on a price before you begin traveling. If you are
overcharged by a cab you should ask for the drivers name and identifcation number, and you
can fle a complaint with his company.
The meter starts at 12.90 and goes up by 30 agurot periodically. After 7pm and on Holidays
(including Israeli holidays) the rates change and it might cost you much more to travel at night
than during the day.
Note: There is an additional charge of 3-4 NIS per suitcase, as well as a charge of 3-4 NIS if there
are more than 3 passengers over the age of fve.

INSURANCE
Most Yeshivas and Seminaries require you to have some sort of
medical insurance. Therefore many of them will have set up your
insurance before you arrive in Israel or shortly thereafter. Most plans
that Yeshivas and Seminaries use cover hospitalization, sick visits
and emergencies. Most also include medications. The doctors that
you can use under your insurance are contracted so fnd out who
you can go to if you need to see a doctor. Many schools provide a
doctor or nurse who works with the school to deal with any medical
conditions. If, however, your issue cant wait, contact the director of
your school in order to fnd out where to go. In an emergency, you
will probably need to go to Terem, which is a network of medical
clinics operating throughout the country. Motzei Shabbos and
Motzei Yom Tov are very busy times and you might end up waiting a while, so think ahead.
All public hospitals are also covered by the various plans.
In general, the school plans are comprehensive and reasonably priced. They work with English
speaking doctors and most have a 24-hour emergency call center.
GETTING MEDICAL INSURANCE
If you need to get your own insurance you have a couple of options. Weve listed some
information for you below
MEUCHEDET
This insurance company happens to be one of the big HMOs in Israel. They have a
supplementary insurance for tourists for $1 (U.S.) a day.
You can contact them at 1-222-3833 or *3833
HAREL (Marketed by Egert & Cohen)
This is a private insurance company specializing in tourist insurance (cost $1.15 per day). The
policy covers doctors visits, hospitalization, x-rays, lab test and dental emergencies
The plan works with contracted English speaking doctors so there is no need to lay out any
money, and no deductible. Both Terem (24 hour emergency center) and the Family Medical
Center in Shaarei Chesed are contracted to the plan, as well as tens of other doctors and
clinics throughout the country.
There is now also an option to cover pre-existing conditions. This plan is marketed by Egert
and Cohen a Jerusalem based insurance broker. They have a dedicated English speaking
staff with over 20 years experience. Call (02) 6232546 or sign up online at: https://www.

Health Tips
SLEEP
Healthy sleep habits will help you think better in school and gain more during the year.
Imagine using a single muscle in your body extensively until it is sore. Then try to use
it to its capacity. You will fnd that unless you give it its needed rest it wont work to
capacity. Your brain is the most important muscle you have, give it some rest. (you might
be thinking.. let my mind rest, its never been awake it doesnt need rest well if you are
thinking that, you have a lot to gain by being in Israel for the year)
Jet lag- It usually takes a few days to get over jet lag (for some it can take a few
weeks). During that time it is possible that you might begin to feel upset, sad, edgy
or otherwise off. Realize that this is normal and you should wait until your body clock
catches up before you make any big decisions.
Making-up Sleep - You cant make-up sleep. Ever notice how much more tired you are
on Sunday morning even though you slept so much over Shabbos. The more you sleep
the more you train your body that you need sleep.
Consistency - Some people thrive on 6 hours of sleep, some on 7, and some on 8. But
nobody thrives on erratic sleep habits. Decide how much sleep you need and get that
much consistently. If you sleep less or more than that, you will be tired.
Bedtime - Ever notice that older
people can go to sleep without
concerning themselves that
they might miss something fun
that is happening late at night.
Mature people recognize that
maintaining healthy sleep habits
is more important than being able
to talk about something crazy that
happened in the dorm last night.
EATING
Water - Your body is used to the
water from your hometown. Water
in foreign countries can disturb your
stomach, Israel is no different. Some
people acclimate to Israeli water
quickly, while some get sick from it.
It is not a bad idea to begin drinking
bottled water and slowly get your
body comfortable to the water here.
Bread - The bread in Israel is very
fresh. It is so yummy that youll

want to eat a ton of it. White bread will make you tired and lethargic. If you eat a lot,
it will also help you gain weight. So if you are suffering from underweightness it might
be a good idea to eat a lot of white bread.
Late Night Snacking - You will probably spend late nights snacking. Snacking on
healthy foods will help you stay healthy. If you snack on junk food and Iced coffee, you
will fnd that you are more edgy and get more upset at your roommates for no reason.
Oily Foods - Your body might react poorly to various foods that you might not be
used to. Oily foods might cause acne breakouts for people, even if normally they dont
experience problems.
Dehydration Always keep a bottle of water in the freezer and take one wherever you
go. The sun in Israel can be brutal.
OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS
Allergies - even if you dont suffer allergies at home, some people begin to suffer in
Israel. This may be due to change of diet, or stronger allergens. If you are suffering
from allergies (runny nose, burning eyes etc) see a doctor. Doctors can prescribe
antihistamines that will help you feel more comfortable.
Shampoo - Some people notice more hair on their brush than they normally see. This
might be caused by the type of shampoo you use. It is worthwhile to use good Israeli
shampoo and not shampoo that you brought from America.

Wisdom Teeth
by Dr. Zipora Gelernter
The issue of when to extract third molars (wisdom teeth) has long been an area of
question. Facts show that third molars frequently fail to assume a healthy, functional
position within the dental arch. The growth of the jaw is essentially complete at 17 years
of age. Early evaluation can help avoid unnecessary damage and discomfort. When it is
determined that an impacted tooth will not perform a useful function, removal is often
suggested. As patients become older, increasing hardness of bone and decreased ability
to heal wounds are signifcant factors in favor of early removal. Extraction between the
ages of 17 and 21, before root development is complete, can considerably simplify the
procedure. Debris and bacteria can accumulate under the skin of partially erupted third
molars. Common symptoms include a swelling and redness of the gum around the site,
diffculty in opening the mouth, a bad odor or taste in the mouth, and pain in the area
which may also run down the lower jaw to the ear or neck. Another common situation
is that of cyst formation which may produce pain or swelling. TMJ pain and dysfunction
have also been noted. With any procedure, one must carefully weigh the advantages and
disadvantages. With modern anesthetic techniques, extraction of a wisdom tooth is a
painless procedure. Anxiety, pain, infection and swelling can be signifcantly controlled
or eliminated by use of medications before, during and after the procedure if necessary.
Our staff will work with you to make your experience an exceptional one. We provide the
warmth and care, that youll rave about. Call for your consultation 02 625 9682

Avoid March Madness
By: D. Silverstein
When asked what seminary she wanted to attend during
the coming year, Chana answered, O.J.. Surprised by her
response, her guidance counselor explained, You realize
that O.J. is probably not for someone like you. To which
Chana responded, I know, but all of my friends
who went to seminary came back 10-15 pounds
heavier, while my brothers who went to O.J. all
lost weight there.
Although the traditional meaning of March
Madness, is the countdown in college basketball
from the Sweet 16 to the Big 8 to the Final Four to the College
NCAA championships. In seminary these words have a very different
connotation. When March comes along many of you will have already arranged your
tickets to go home for Pesach, some of you may even have your bags packed early, March
is the time that many of you might begin to think maybe I shouldnt take home all of my
extra baggage.
Many girls in seminary acquire extra baggage over the course of the year from eating
out more than usual, visits to Zisalik and Katzefet, gallons of (low-fat) iced coffee, and
late night high carb snacks. When you begin to prepare for your trip home you might be
concerned with what others will say, and you might be concerned
about ftting into your old clothing. This concern is warranted
and you should probably think about this before the March
Madness comes and you feel like go on a starvation diet.
SOME TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID MARCH
MADNESS:
1. Drink at least 8 cups of water daily
2. Choose to walk instead of drive. Walk to places that are
in reasonable walking distance. (Besides, its a mitzvah
to walk in Israel)
3. Buy fruits and vegetables snack on these
4. Avoid late night carb parties.
5. Try whole wheat bread instead of white bread.
6. Avoid eating out. They make everything unhealthy.
7. Try water instead of sugar drinks.
8. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise

Chazal tell us that there is an angel standing above every blade of grass telling it GROW.
If that is the case by blades of grass how much more so is it true by each and every one
of us. The pivotal year(s) each of us spends in Israel are not just coincidently the same
years that we are turning from dependent teenagers to self-suffcient, self-reliant adults.
Most of us left our parents homes and for most of us this is the frst time we are on
our own for such an extended period of time. This opportunity that many refer to as
The Year(s) in Israel is a year that is flled with growth in so many areas of life. We will
all hopefully mature and build ourselves in our connection with Torah as well as build
healthy relationships that may last a lifetime.
It is not coincidental that during this year many students fnd themselves introspecting
and discovering their inner selves. Many discover that they are very happy with what
they fnd. Some students however, begin to look deeper inside themselves and fnd that
there are certain issues that they would like to have someone help them work through or
just to have more clarity on. (One student looked so deep inside himself that he found a
piece of bubble gum that he swallowed when he was four.) Many of us have gone through
personal traumas, and others, just through diffcult situations that could use a little
working through.
Issues are like tissues, sooner or later you have to throw them away. Going to a therapist
does not necessarily suggest that there is something wrong with you. Many people go to
therapists for the purpose of gaining life skills in order to help them work through their
problems. Working through your issues while you are still young will give you skills which
will better assist you in life as you grow and enter into adulthood. It will prepare you in
dealing with other situations that might come your way.
There are many very qualifed and good therapists and psychologists available to help
you in whatever area of life you might need assistance with. Your teachers might be able
to suggest someone with whom they have experience as being a good therapist. If you
are looking for a therapist and you dont seem to be able to fnd the right one for you, you
can call or text us at (054)STU-DENT or email us at YeshivaSemGuide@Gmail.com and we
will be happy to assist you in fnding a professional to help. The call / email will be kept
100% confdential.

Hisbodidus
You may have never heard of hisbodidus but if you try it you might begin wondering how
you ever lived without it. In a world where we are constantly in-touch and busy, hisbodidus
can give you a time to refresh and connect to Hashem in a way that you never had before.
Hisbodidus literally means solitude which is exactly what it is. Hisbodidus is your private
time with your Creator where you can talk to Him and show Him appreciation for all that He
has given you and lay all of your issues upon Him. Is it your complete separation from the
outside world and complete immersion into yourself and your relationship with Hashem.
Hisbodidus should initially be performed in short periods, extending as you get comfortable. In
order to perform hisbodidus you will need to:
Separate from any technological devices that may suddenly disturb you.
Find a private area away from all human beings where no one can hear you,
and at a time when no one can suddenly disrupt your session
Sit and breathe deeply for a minute or so to calm yourself, clear your mind.
Read or recite one perek of tehillim (preferably one you know well)
Visualize the greatness of the world either with your eyes or in your mind
Then begin to speak.
Think of things that you would like to thank Hashem for and begin to thank Him aloud.
Here are some examples of what you might say.
Thank you Hashem for choosing to create such a beautiful glorious world.
Thank you Hashem for the sun, the moon, the stars, trees, mountains, rivers, beautiful
creatures, how glorious is your world Hashem
Thank you Hashem that You feed and sustain all beings and all this out of pure
graciousness because you are not required to do so
Thank you Hashem for creating me and gaving me life and allowing me to feel that I
exist.
Thank you Hashem for creating me as a person and not as an animal and you gave me
the ability to understand things and to read and write and to be aware of your existence.
Thank you Hashem for making me a Jew and being my G-d
Thank you Hashem for making me healthy and whole and that
all of my body parts work.
Then begin your free conversation with Him. You can
continue to thank Him, complain to Him, ask Him for
assistance in a specifc area in life or any other type of
conversation. Realize that he is listening to what you
have to say and you are important to Him. You wont
hear him respond to you in words but you will experience
him respond to you in action. If you dont gain from a frst
session try again

Rebbe/Mentor
Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzato in his sefer Mesilas Yesharim discusses a complicated garden-
maze made of bushes, in which there is a platform in the middle, on which one can
stand and see the entire maze. When entering the maze it would be very diffcult for the
average person to make his way toward the center, as the maze contains many twists and
unexpected turns. If a person entering the maze will look toward the middle of the maze
he will see the head of a man raised above the bushes; the man on the platform. From his
vantage point he can see the entire maze and all of the people inside of it. If any of the
maze travelers will ask the man for advice how to reach the middle he will gladly tell them,
Turn right then left.. It would seem foolish if someone would know that there is a man
in the middle who has traveled the maze already and would not ask his advice.
In the world of Torah there are many great people who have gone through the trials and
tribulations you may be going through. They have risen above all else and have built
themselves a platform from which they can see the entire maze. As we enter the life of
adulthood, we have an incredible opportunity to look to these people and ask them how
to navigate this complicate maze. Most yeshivas and seminaries are staffed by some of the
greatest Torah leaders of our day. Find a person who speaks to you someone who you feel
you can relate to. Begin to ask them questions, even questions that you might know an
answer to already. Hear their answer; it will help you build a relationship.
If you feel that you cant fnd someone in your Yeshiva / Seminary, look outside. Maybe
a family with whom you spend Shabbos or an older married person to whom you feel
you can relate. Yerushalayim is overowing with great people who would love to give of
themselves to help another Jew grow in their Avodas Hash-m.
The importance of having a rebbe / mentor cannot be emphasized enough. Even when
you leave you cozy confnes of your yeshiva / seminary you will always have someone who
truly cares about you, to whom you can turn with any life issue that you might come upon.
Goals
The most successful students who make their way through their year/s in Eretz Yisroel are
usually the ones who at some time during their year have set goals for their progress. Goals
are the symbol of mature person who is growth oriented. Deciding that you want your
growth to be focused in a certain direction at a certain pace will help you become
who you want to become. The time a person spends in Yeshiva / Seminary in Eretz
Yisroel is often the most intense growth period s/he will spend in her / his life. If
you sit and think about what you want to get out of your time here and you make
a general set of goals of how to get there you will fnd that your development will
be accelerated more than those who have not made such an assessment.
If you make goals you will fnd that you also waste less time. You will look for things that
ft into your goals and even when you are involved in extra-curricular activities you have a
clearer focus how each thing you do fts into how you want to spend your year.

Chessed Opportunities
Most students fnd time during their daily schedule that has not been
flled with classes or other important things that they need to do.
What they do with that time distinguishes the men from the boys
and the women from the girls. Some people feel they can never get
enough of hangin out some just love eating out while others
just feel like going out. The students who come to Eretz Yisroel for
the purpose of ipping out usually fnd themselves spending their
leisure time, Helping out.
Most schools have a chessed program set up for the girls in their
school. If you feel that you would like to do more and you just
dont know where to lend a hand we have provided a list of
places where you can offer your services and grow through
reaching out to others.
There are a tremendous amount of opportunities to do chessed.
Usually the one being helped the most by a chessed is the one doing
the chessed. Helping others helps you become who you are. You
realize a remarkable potential inside you to be a benefactor to others;
sort of the way Hash-m is to us. You can fnd a chessed opportunity
right in your apartment. Help another student in an area that they
need help. You can go to peoples houses to help them with their
children, cleaning, cooking etc If you have extra time, or on days
off, you can offer a teacher to take her children out to a park, to the zoo, to eat etc There
is no end to the types and amounts of chessed that you can do. One seminary student even
started her own childrens book lending library for children in the neighborhood. If you have
innovative chessed ideas that other can gain from please send an SMS to (054)STU-DENT or
email us at YeshivaSemGuide@gmail.com
The following is a list of simple chessed ideas that are available for you if you nd that
you have time.

Checking Tellin/Tellin Gemach*
Being in Yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel includes growth in many areas of your life. As you grow
your desire to keep mitzvos more carefully also grows. Many of you have been wearing your
tefllin since your bar mitzvah not even thinking about whether they are kosher or not. Some
have retzuos (straps) that have worn out. Some have their Batim (boxes) warped while others
might have gotten their tefllin from a grandmother who doesnt really know much about
buying tefllin and might have purchased the tefllin from a less than reputable source.
Whatever the reason, many fnd themselves looking to have their tefllin checked in Eretz
Yisroel, but dont know where to go. There are many reputable people who will check your
tefllin for you as well as many people who have gemachim where you can borrow tefllin
until yours are ready.
Additionally, if you have misplaced your tefllin there is a lost and found hotline which has a
section specifcally for tefllin. Call 1-599-500-003 and follow the directions in Hebrew to fnd
the correct person, then leave a message with your name number and information about
your tefllin and if they have found them they will let you know. You can borrow tefllin from
a gemach until you fnd yours or have the opportunity to procure new ones.
For those interested, there is a tefllin factory located in Givat Shaul on 31 Rechov Kanfei
Nesharim called Oter Yisrael where you can see tefllin being made. They are opened from
8am till 7:30pm. The best time to watch this fascinating process is during the morning and
afternoon hours between 8:30am and 3pm. It is best to call ahead before showing up. Their
number is 02-653-5514.

Davening With a Minyan*
There is a story about Rav Aryeh Levin who had arrived from out of town very late and there
were no more Maariv minyanim. He was very distraught since he was very careful to always
daven with a minyan. He then thought of a great idea. He called the local (non-arab) taxi
company and ordered nine taxis to his house. When the cab drivers arrived, he asked them
to start the meter on the cab and to come inside to daven maariv with him. They obliged
and after the minyan was fnished he asked each one to come over to receive his fare. All of
the taxi drivers were so impressed by his desire to daven with a minyan that they refused
payment. (if you try this, remember that they might not refuse payment so have a wad of
cash prepared just in case.)
Davening 3 times a day with a minyan is so basic to being a religious Jewish man, that for
many it is what distinguishes the men from the boys. One man in his mid-40s told me that
he has not missed davening with a minyan since the day he arrived in Israel for his frst year
of learning. When I asked him how he was able to accomplish such a feat, he answered,
Shteeblach I said what? He explained that even though he is very careful to daven in
the same minyan every day, sometimes things come up like late night simchas, late night
ights, late wake-ups etc. For those situations he takes a quick cab ride to the nearest
shteeble where he is guaranteed to fnd a minyan at all hours of the day.
Here is a list of some shteeblach around Yerushalayim and Ramat Beit Shemesh where you
can fnd a minyan at all hours of the day and night

Leaving your life behind to spend a year abroad can be challenging. Knowing your family is
just a phone call away can ease a lot of your issues with adjusting. In Israel cellphone plans
range from very cheap to very expensive depending on your needs and wants, and who you
call.
Incoming is always free in Israel.
There are no friends and family plans nor do any of the companies offer free nights and
weekends.
Important: There are no cellphone contracts in Israel. Therefore many companies will try to
sell you a phone at an expensive rate and have you pay it off over 36 months so when you try
to get out of your contract youll have to pay off the whole phone at once.
Kosher Phones-You might have heard of these things or you might not have but kosher
phones have nothing to do with the fact the ingredients of the cellphone have been checked
out and certifed by an orthodox rabbi. Rather due to the numerous issues that are possible
with cellphones. A group of rabbonim have joined together to make cellphones just that;
Cellphones. Kosher phones have no cameras nor texting nor internet capabilities. All major
companies in Israel offer kosher phone plans which tend to be much less expensive than
regular phone plans. Kosher phone plans are very inexpensive and include free minutes to
all other kosher phones

HISTORY:
The land that we call Israel today is the same land that was given by the Creator of the World
to Avraham Avinu 3700+ years ago. Hashem then gave the land again to Avrahams son
Yitzchok and then again to his son Yaakov. The Jews spent 210 years in Egypt and 40 years in
the desert until Yehoshua led the Jews into Eretz Yisroel as Hashem conquered the land for
them. The conquest of Eretz Yisroel lasted 28 years (14 years of war and 14 years to split up
and settle the land.) and for the next 450 years the Jews ruled in Israel until the building of the
frst Beis Hamikdash which lasted for 410 years. The Beis Hamikdash was later destroyed and
lay in ruin for 70 years until the second Beis Hamikdash was built which lasted for 420 years
after which the Jews were sent into galus. This would become the longest galus for the Jews.
For the next 2000+ years Jews lived in various countries and were persecuted. During this
period there were small groups who had moved back to the Jewish homeland. The land lay
fallow and in ruin for all of these years with very few buildings outside the walls of the original
cities. In the 1700s Rav Yehuda Hachasid brought a group of Ashkenazi Jews to Eretz Yisroel.
They began to rebuild the Jewish settlement. They borrowed a large amount of money from
the local arabs and built various buildings, including a large shul in the middle of the old city
(known today as the Churvah Shul). When Rav Yehuda Hachasid died and the Jews were not
able to repay their loans, the Arabs destroyed the Jewish settlement and the shul and banned
Jews of Ashkenazi descent from living in their cities.
In the late 1700s, almost simultaneously, students of the Vilna Gaon and members of the
chassidic world began to make their way back to Eretz Yisroel. They dressed in striped caftans
similar to their Sephardic brethren in order that the arabs should not persecute them. The
ban on Ashkenazi Jews was rescinded and slowly but surely more and more Jews began to
populate Israel. Israel continued to grow and they began to build neighborhoods outside

the city walls. In the late 1800s a proposal was made by the World Zionist Organization to
obtain control of the land of Palestine (as Israel was then known) from the British. After much
diffculty and many years the Zionists had obtained the rights to rule Palestine, and on May
14th 1948 they renamed it Medinat Yisrael (the country of Israel).
TYPE OF GOVERNMENT:
The type of government in Israel is a Parliamentary Democracy. This means that the
governing board is a parliament (Knesset) which is made up of 120 members from a variety of
political parties. Voters vote for a political party which appoints its highest ranking members
as Knesset ministers. The more votes a party gets the more Knesset members they appoint.
The party with the most members in the Knesset appoints the Prime Minister. The Knessets
governing group must include a majority of members of the Knesset, therefore the largest
party offers smaller parties to join a coalition in order to form a majority of the government.

MAJOR ISRAEL WARS*:
1948-War of Independence began in 1947 as a civil war between Jews and Arabs living in
Palestine. When Israel declared its independence on May 14th 1948 Egypt, Syria, Transjordan,
Lebanon, and Iraq joined in the war and attacked Israel on all its borders. In 1949 a cease fre
was agreed upon and the Green Line was drawn (named for the color pen used to draw the
line) which marked the holdings of Jewish controlled Israel and the Arab controlled lands.
1967-THE SIX DAY WAR - Egypt began moving troops into the Sinai Desert in order to get
close to Israels borders to prepare for war. Shortly thereafter they blocked the Straits of Tiran
in order to block Israels only waterway for trade with the far-east and the waterway Israel
needed to receive oil from Iran. Jordan then surrounded Israel from the east and Syria from the
north. The Israelis realized that if they waited they would be in for a terrible disaster, so they
decided to carry out a surprise preemptive attack on its enemies. The Israeli Air Force, with
the exception of just 12 fghters, left Israel while the Egyptian pilots were eating breakfast
and bombed the entire Egyptian air-force, and in less than two hours had obliterated almost

300 Egyptian aircraft. With the threat of Egypt lightened somewhat, Israel turned its efforts
toward Syria and fought a courageous war against their enemies. When the war ended Israel
had captured the Sinai, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip, and West Bank.
1973-YOM KIPPUR WAR - After a humiliating defeat in the 1967 war, Egypt and Syria decided
that they needed to save face and prepared for another attack on Israel. Egypt and Syria
mobilized their troops and Israel prepared itself for war. But after a few war threats with
nothing carried out Israel had let its guard down. Israel was warned by America not to make a
preemptive strike as it would cause bad relations between Israel and her much needed allies.
On Yom Kippur 1973, while most of Israels troops were in shul, Egypt and Syria carried out a
surprise attack on Israel (Egypt from the south and Syria from the north.) The arab nations,
in an attempt to create pressure from America raised the prices of their export of oil to the
U.S. During the frst days of the war Israel lost many soldiers. When Israel then regrouped,
a large battle took place both in the Sinai against Egypt and in the Golan Heights against
Syria. In both battles Israel turned out to be successful. Israel was so successful that the I.D.F.
began to march on Cairo (capital of Egypt) and on Damascus (Capital of Syria). Realizing
that attacking the capitals of both these countries would be seen as very bad in the eyes of
the world, and with threats from other world powers, Israel backed off, and on October 22 a
ceasefre was called by the U.N.

Kotel or as others call it Kosel is the western wall of the Har Habayis. Till now Kotel has been a noun
referring to the wall itself. But today Kotel takes on a new verb meaning
How guys were Koteling, wanna join

So let your friends know that koteling is cool and whenever you have a chance, Kotel! You never

ABOUT ISRAEL
Going to Eretz Yisroel for a year of learning is a very exciting opportunity that when put
into perspective can have a tremendous effect on your present and future. For more than
2000 years after the destruction of the second Beis Hamikdash, Klal Yisroel has yearned to
come back to Eretz Yisroel. Throughout that time few had attempted to make the dangerous
journey and even fewer had actually made it to Eretz Yisroel. The yearning and desire to
come back to our land has been central to our existence throughout our history. You are now
being given an opportunity that you grandparents would have given their lives to experience.
Knowing a little about the uniqueness of Eretz Yisroel may help you gain perspective and
appreciate your time there more fully.
Chazal tell us that Hash-m chose Eretz Yisroel as His land and bestowed upon
it all the greatest gifts for a land. So much so that chazal tell us that Eretz
Yisroel lacks nothing. (Brachos 36b)
The creation of the world began with Eretz Yisroel with the rest of the world
following after. (Taanis 10a)
Simply breathing the air of Eretz Yisroel makes you smarter. (Bava Basra 158b)
There were 10 portions of wisdom sent to the world and Eretz Yisroel took nine
of them. (Kiddushin 49).
A person who walks four amos in Eretz Yisroel is a guaranteed Ben Olam
Habah. (Kesubos 111a)
There is no Torah that compares to the Torah of Eretz
Yisroel. (Berashis Rabah 16)
If one desires to merit seeing the Shechinah in this
world he should learn Torah
in Eretz Yisroel. (Midrash Shocher tov Tehillim 105)
Eretz Yisroel is more holy than any other land
(Mishna Keilim 1:6)
There is no wisdom like the wisdom of
Eretz Yisroel (Avos Drebbe Nosson 28)
Even the ordinary speech of those who
dwell in Eretz Yisroel is Torah
(Vayikra Rabba 34)
The above is only the tip of the iceberg regarding the
lofty status that Eretz Yisroel holds. But as we all know with
privileges come responsibilities. The way one acts in the Palace
of the King in not the same as he would in the privacy of his own
home. Being aware of the greatness that Eretz Yisroel holds in the
eyes of the Creator of the world will help you approach your time
there with a more mature attitude. Enjoy and Good Luck!

CHAGIM
ZMANIM FOR YERUSHALAYIM
YOMIM TOVIM IN ISRAEL
Just a heads-up for this year (6th year of the Shmittah cycle)
*3 day Yom Tov means that Yom Tov falls out on Thursday and Friday and is followed by
Shabbos.
One of the highlights of spending time in Israel is the excitement that is apparent when Yom
Tov comes around. The hustle and bustle of shopping and preparing for the mitzvos of the
chag. As an outsider it can be very rewarding to get close to a family in order to experience
the preparations from the inside.
YOMIM NORAIM
The Yomim Noraim in Eretz Yisroel can be very uplifting. Ask others in your institution
where you can go for a meaningful davening. There are so many different places and
each person has his / her own preferences. If there will be a minyan in your Yeshiva /
Seminary it is usually better to attend that minyan, especially if you are required
to. If you will be eating out, make sure you know when your hosts eat, since
some minyanim let out later than others. Many
families in Eretz Yisroel do eat the simanim
on the night of Rosh Hashanah. If you are
used to it, great, if it is new to you, take it in, as
the minhagim of Yomim Tovim help give the Yom Tov
extra avor. Rosh Hashanah is two days even for Israelis,
and this year it is a 3 dayer so if you need to prepare your
meals, prepare them early.
This year Yom Kippur falls out on Shabbos which is one of the only times that we actually
fast on Shabbos.
Advice: Accept something small upon yourself during the Aseres Yemei Teshuva (ex. I
wont speak Lashon Harah between 1-2 pm I will only eat a higher level of Kashrus etc.)
ROSH HASHANAH is a 3 day* Yom Tov
(even for Israelis) begins on Wednesday

It will show Hashem that you ideally want to be doing things better, and he will grant
you a better new year.
Get ready for Yom Kippur a little earlier and go to shul to say Tefllas Zakah in English
(found in every Machzor before Kol Nidrei), I guarantee it will change your Yom Kippur.
Motzei Yom Kippur is a mini Yom Tov. Try to have a proper seudah. (If possible go to a
family for the seudah.)
YOM TOV SHEINI
Keeping two days of Yom Tov is not based on how much you like Israel but rather based on
halachah. If you are well read in the appropriate areas of halachah and have Semicha from
a higher authority than you should feel free making the decision to keep one or two days
of Yom Tov for yourself. If you are like the rest of us you should ask a competent halachic
authority to tell you what you should do. Many families who keep two days make their
second day meal a little later and make the meal take longer. That way they wont have to go
out and see Israelis doing melachah.
Advice: You should not take the second day of Yom Tov lightly, fnd out if you are
supposed to keep one or two days and do it properly.
Make sure to arrange your second day meals early enough because most families
dont keep two days.
SUCCOS
Immediately after Yom Kippur ends, the feverish pace of getting ready for Succos begins.
Many people put up their succahs before Yom Kippur, while many others wait until afterwards.
There are arbah minim shuks where many sellers come together and sell their lulavim and
esrogim and other Yom Tov items for Succos. Walk the street and see the Yerushalmim
examining each of their Arbah Minim meticulously. Pay attention to the love that people have
for the mitzvos of Succos. Additionally feel free to offer an extra hand to a family or teacher to
help prepare for Yom Tov; help cook, build a succah, etc The more you put into a Yom Tov
the more you will get out of it.
Advice: First and last days are 3 dayers so prepare your meals early in order not
to get left out in the cold.
Encourage a Rabbi to give a practical buying-a-lulav-and-esrog shiur. This will
make the process of buying your set much more fun and exciting. You might even
want to make a school trip to an arbah minim shuk to learn the halachos hands-on.
Buy a few sets of aravos (theyre very cheap (3 sets cost a slice of pizza)) since the
Israeli aravos have a way of wilting very quickly and you will be left with 3 beautiful
minim and 1 stinky wilted one that might make the whole thing no good.
Prepare your Lulav before Yom Tov (remember: Haddasim to the right)
In preparation for Yom Tov remember to set up all of your meals in advance. There are many
fun things to do around Israel on Succos. (See below). On every evening many Chasidishe
sects make a Simchas Beis Hashoeivah, which last throughout the evening. The biggest and

most lively are usually towards the end of Meah Shearim by Toldos Aharon, Toldos Avraham
Yitzchak, and by Breslov, as well as many in the neighborhood of Beis Yisroel right nearby.
Even if you dont know where to go, you can simply stroll down Meah Shearim on any night
and you will easily be directed to the right place.
Some nights are busier by different places so be aware when each group makes their
big night.
The Big night in Breslov is the third day of Succos, since it is the Yahrtzeit of their Rebbe,
Rebbe Nachman. It is the night on which the Simchas Beis Hashoeivah goes until very
late. The dancing there is a sight to behold.
The Big night in Toldos Aharon is on the Ushpizin of Aharon since that is the name of
their frst Rebbe, Reb Aharon Areleh Roth.
In Karlin-Stolin off of Rechov Yoel, a leibedig Simchas Beis Hashoevah takes place every
night and the atmosphere is very accepting and the dancing takes place in the form of
one long snake.
The Pinsk-Karlin Simchas Beis Hashoeivah takes place in a tent in the Beis Yisroel
neighborhood. The Rebbe is connected to many important people, so you will see
many interesting faces pop-in.
CHOL HAMOED
On the frst morning of Chol Hamoed (for Non-Israelis) there is a very large gathering for
davening at the Kosel where the main attraction is the hundreds of Kohanim gathered to
bless the assembled during the largest Birchas Kohanim of the year. This usually happens
sometime around 9am for Shacharis and 10am for Musaf. (check the times before, to make
sure you dont miss it). More people attend the Bircas Kohanim at Musaf so be prepared.
Additionally there are many fun things around the Old City that day.
Advice: Daven beforehand so you dont have to carry your lulav and esrog etc. around
with you all day. Bring water cause its always very hot.
HOSHANAH RABBAH
In many areas people stay up learning on the night of Hoshanah Rabbah and many more go
to the Kosel for Netz on Hoshanah Rabbah morning. Its worth your while to join them.
In Israel people do not eat in the succah on Shemini Atzeres. If you are eating by someone who
does not eat in the succah you are not required to eat in the succah.
SIMCHAS TORAH
The excitement of Simchas Torah can be felt in every yeshiva throughout Eretz Yisroel. The
larger the yeshivah, the more exciting the hakafos. If your yeshiva has hakafos, you should
preferably attend them as hakafos spent with people who you know, are more geshmak than
any other place.
128
AROUND THE
YEAR IN ISRAEL
CHANUKAH
Many Yeshivas and Seminaries hold Chanukah Mesibahs for their students. For many it is
the highlight of their year. Dont eat too many latkes and jelly donuts because, a moment
on the lips, is a lifetime on the hips The quality of donuts in Israel is not always what you
are used to. Some bakeries make their donuts like bread and add a drop of jelly while others
load the donuts with jelly / cream. General rule the less the donut costs the less jelly and less
geshamak it will be. If you are interested, there are many Chassidic groups who make parties
after the Rebbe lights his menorah. In Karlin-Stolin there is a big party on the ffth night.
Advice: Dont cheap out on Mitzvos. For a few sheks you can perform the mitzvah
of hadlakas neiros in the best possible way (with olive oil and cotton wicks).
After the school lighting, start singing Chanukah songs and dance. It will help everyone get
into the Yom Tov spirit.
Set up a gift buying game where each person purchases an inexpensive gift for someone else
in the school (dont leave anyone out) it will bring the school together in a very powerful way.
PURIM
This year there are two Adars. So if you are born in Adar (like me) you can celebrate twice. It
also means that Purim will be celebrated during the second Adar.
Sometimes even Israelis keep two days of Yom Tov. Israel is the only place where you can
celebrate two days of Purim. Shushan Purim when you were
growing up was probably as relevant to you as Isru Chag.
It was just the day after Purim, which was a regular day
of school and everyone went on with life as usual.
In Israel however, there are entire cities (including
Yerushalayim) for which Shushan Purim is their Purim.
Many people travel outside of Yerushalayim for the day
of Purim and go to Yerushalayim on Shushan Purim which is
the day they celebrate. This practice should be discussed with
a teacher to fnd out if it good for you. Recognize the halachic
questions that arise when you do this so that you can avoid any problems.
This year Taanis Esther gets moved earlier to Thursday and Purim falls out on Sunday for
the whole world and Shushan Purim (Yerushalayim) falls out on Monday. If you are not
planning on celebrating Purim on the frst day you might not want to spend Shabbos out
of Yerushalayim. But if you do and you stay over Motzei Shabbos be aware that you will be
required to perform all of the mitzvos of the day.

AROUND THE
YEAR IN ISRAEL
On the night of Purim many Yeshivas and Seminaries have Purim mesibahs. Dont drink too
much on the night of Purim, you might fnd that you will be tired and sick the next day when
the real fun is, so be smart and plan how to celebrate Purim so you dont miss out. Girls,
according to most poskim there is no mitzvah for women to drink on Purim (nor any other
day of the year) so its best to refrain (Being a princess (Bas Melech) involves loftier behavior).
Advice: Prepare a single vort that you can say over to everyone you meet, so your
drunkenness is Purimdik and Toradik.
Spend as much money on Matanos Leevyonim as you do on all your Shaloch Manos and
drinkage.
Rules of proper conduct and dress apply on Purim as well.
Buy nice Shalach Manos for rabbeim and teachers. (Its a nice way of showing that you
recognize that they put their heart and soul into you.)
Sweet wine will make you sick. Eating candy and sweet things will make you sick. Drinking
on an empty stomach will make you sick. Remember: slow and steady wins the race.
The best way to perform the mitzvah is with wine not vodka, scotch, bourbon, arak, beer, etc.
It is said that you should give tzedakah on Purim to anyone who puts out his hand. It is
explained that this is a segulah that Hash-m should answer you when you put out your hand.
Many learn from this idea that one should daven for what they want on Purim and put out
their hand toward Hash-m and in the same way we give, He will give. Some also have the
custom to travel to tzaddikim to put out their hand for brachos.
Many Chassidish Rebbes purim seudahs carry on through the night, so if you arent ready
to end your Purim when it offcially ends look around and youll fnd some serious Purim
excitement.
PESACH
The Yom Tov of geulah, the time when Klal Yisroel left the shackles of servitude and entered
into a covenant with Hash-m. Most bachurim and seminary students leave Eretz Yisroel to go
back home to spend Pesach with their families. If you are one of those who do go back, make
a plan before you go in order that you shouldnt have a big spiritual fall when you go back.
Many boys and girls dont realize how much theyve grown over the year and are shocked to
realize how different they are from the world that they left. Plan to learn over Pesach at least a
little each day in order that you can keep your head above water. Even if you do fall, know that
it happens to most people. It is not a lacking in your commitment
to growth. It is a reality of what happens when a growing
person leaves his environment without having spent
enough time working on him / herself. Who knows
maybe you need another year.
If you are of the fortunate few who spend their
Pesach in Eretz Yisroel, know that there are
many things you can do to keep your growth
momentum going. Cleaning for Pesach does not
need to be a hassle. The cleaning we do for Pesach is
a mashal for the spiritual cleaning we are meant to do

inside ourselves. The harder you work physically the more you show Hash-m that you want
to be clean of sins. You can offer a family or teacher help in their Pesach preparations. You can
help them by cleaning or even by just taking out their children to a park, zoo etc
Much of the food on Pesach is kosher Lpesach for Kitnios eaters. If you are not a kitnios eater
be careful as a lot of the packaging can be deceiving.
LAG BAOMER
Lag Baomer in Israel is a far cry from what you may have been used to in your home town.
Back home, the most you might have done was arrange a school trip or a baseball game. And
even that wasnt always done on Lag Baomer.
Lag Baomer is believed to be the Yaartzeit of the tanna Rebbe Shimon bar Yochai. In honor
of this, thousands of Jews of all walks of life travel to his kever for Lag Baomer for exciting
festivities. Many of the Chasidishe rebbes go up to Meiron and light bonfres surrounded by
their Chasidim. This year Lag Baomer falls out on Motzei Shabbos therefore many people go
up to be in or near Meiron for Shabbos. Be aware that the festivities after Shabbos begin later
than usual in order to minimize chilul shabbos.
Many Schools take their students to Meiron, some make their own bonfres, while for others
Lag Baomer is a regular day. Discuss the day with a teacher to fnd out more about it to see
if you connect to it.
Even if you are not of the many who will make it to Meiron. No matter where you are in Eretz
Yisroel you will fnd children and adults lighting bonfres in honor of Rebbe Shimon. Some of
the fres are simply made for the pyromaniac children to have a release, while others will help
to uplift you. Find a bonfre that you feel will be run well and that you will gain from. even
that wasnt always done on Lag Baomer.
Lag Baomer is believed to be the Yaartzeit of the tanna Rebbe Shimon bar Yochai. In honor
of this, thousands of Jews of all walks of life travel to his kever for Lag Baomer for exciting
festivities. Many of the Chasidishe rebbes go up to Meiron and light bonfres surrounded by
their Chasidim. This year Lag Baomer falls out on Motzei Shabbos therefore many people go
up to be in or near Meiron for Shabbos. Be aware that the festivities after shabbos begin later
than usual since those in charge want to minimize chilul shabbos.
There is a minhag referred to as Chai Roitel. It is said that one who sponsors 18 Roitel (approx.
54 liters 6 cases of 6x1.5 liter bottles) of drink for those going to Meiron will merit to have
their desires fulflled from Shamayim. Therefore those who visit Meiron will fnd themselves
inundated by more drink and food
than they could possibly digest.
But dont focus on the food. Your
focus should be on the feverish
excitement of yidden from all walks
of life celebrating the yahrtzeit of the
tanna who wrote the Sefer HaZohar
and brought a tremendous light of
Torah into the world.

SHAVUOS
Shavuos in Yerushalayim in unlike anywhere else in the world. True that many Yeshivas and
Seminaries are coming to a close, but in almost every one there is a program for learning
throughout the night. Some of the most powerful shiurim are given on Leil Shavuos as it is
the night before Kabalas Hatorah. As the night moves on and dawn approaches thousands of
Jews from all over the Yerushalayim walk toward the Kosel Hamaaravi for Shacharis.
There are minyanim flling the entire Kosel Plaza. UntilNetz Total silence Thousands of
people davening Shemonah Esrei together. Standing before Hash-m right outside His house
speaking His praises. Afterwards, those traveling to northern Yerushalayim are met on their
walk down Rechov Shmuel Hanavi by tables and tents set up with drinks and food to satiate
the passersby. (Mi Keamcha Yisroel) Dont forget to fnd out when your hosts eat lunch as
many will be up all night and may be taking a rest before lunch.
Advice: Spend the night of Shavous taking stock on what you learned though the
year and review it. This more than anything will help you realize how far you have
come and help you take your growth to the next level.

Preparing for Pesach Vacation
To go or not to go, that is the question. And a great question it is. Should I go home for Pesach
of should I stay in Yeshiva/Seminary. Pesach is a time when many families are very careful
about being together. However leaving Israel for Pesach seems almost antithetical to the
whole concept of what Pesach is. The decision is a very important one and should be made
when weighing both sides very carefully. Most students go home and this makes the ability
to stay more diffcult. However whether you go or stay you will probably fnd that you need
to prepare properly in order to adjust to your change of scenery.
Whether you are going back or staying, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is for
you to stay in a groove. Boredom is the playing feld of the Yetzer Harah. It is so important for
you to spend some time every day dedicating time to Avodas Hashem. If you are going back,
set up a chavrusah with someone who lives near you. Bring breakfast to shul and learn for an
hour or so after davening (most mornings are
slow anyway). Guys, make sure to daven with
a minyan every day. Get a haggadah
that you like and write up divrei torah
that you want to say at your Seder. It is
important to relax over vacation so fnd time
to refresh yourself.
FOR THOSE WHO WILL BE GOING BACK
SETTING UP A TICKET
First things frst. If you will be going home
for Pesach make sure to prepare early. You
might want to change your ticket date in
order to go home earlier/later or to be on the
same ight as your friends. Check with your
school, as many schools have a date before
which they do not permit students to leave.
Take care of your ticket early since Pesach is
a busy ying season and ights fll up fast.
You might want to arrange an extended
layover with some friends in a country in
Europe etc. Whatever you plan, plan early
and dont waste too much time planning.
Ive watched people waste weeks of their
year just fguring out which ight to go on
and how early to leave.
FINDING GOOD THINGS TO DO BACK HOME
When you go back you will fnd yourself
in a very interesting situation. You are on
vacation while most people are still in
school or working. This means you will have
to fnd ways to fll your time. You can and
should set up learning time so you dont
feel you are just trying to pass the time. You
can get together with others who are back
from Israel. You can go to shiurim around
your neighborhood. You can get involved
in an organization that helps people for
Pesach. You can help clean around your
house. Whatever you decide to do use your
time wisely and dont just look for ways to
kill time.

OLD FRIENDS AND OLD SITUATIONS.
Having spent the past few months in a
learning and growing environment you
might feel out of place when you go back.
You might have old friends or family
members who have not grown in the same
way as you have, and spending time with
them might have a detrimental effect on
your spirituality. Think ahead and avoid the
peer pressure. Arrange to spend time with
people who have similar goals as you have.

who will have a negative effect on you plan
ahead with ways to make the situation less
negative.
BEING NORMAL
Going home for Pesach or any other time can
be met with challenges. If you have grown a
lot in Israel you might fnd that people are
looking at you strangely. Some will be very
proud of your growth while some will be
bothered by it, wondering why you felt that
you werent good enough when you left and
why you had to change. You might get lots of
questions; some curious and well-meaning
and others aggressive and attacking. You
are not required to answer every person who
asks you a question.
CONVERSATIONS AT YOUR TABLE
In some families the conversation at the
Shabbos/Yom Tov table doesnt resemble
what a Shabbos table is supposed to be. If
yours is one of those tables and you have
grown a lot in Israel you might be concerned
about going back as you will be frustrated
with the conversation and you could end
up getting into arguments about what
the conversation should be like. Firstly it
is important to note that Kibud Av Vaem
is more important than the conversation
at your Shabbos table. But if you are able
to cleverly change the subject, you will
fnd that you can have good conversation
without upsetting others.
Bring up a theoretical theological question
that everyone has an opinion on. People
will love to discuss their opinion on the
subject.
Make up a case that could happen in
halachah and discuss peoples opinions
about what halachah would say about a
situation.
BRINGING BACK CLOTHING
You came to Israel with two bags of
stuff, you bought some stuff, and your
parents brought you some stuff or sent
you stuff with people coming to Israel.
Whatever the case may be, you might very
well fnd yourself with a lot more stuff
than you had when you came. When you go
home for Pesach might be a very good time
to bring some of that stuff home so you will
have enough room when you leave at the
end of the year.
You might feel compelled to bring back all
of your winter clothing since the winter has
ended and when you come back it will be
warm. But it is advised to leave a jacket and
sweatshirt etc. here just in case it gets cold
again.
BUYING GIFTS:
When you go back you might want to buy
gifts for family members. See our gift buying
section for some ideas.
136
AROUND THE
YEAR IN ISRAEL
Slowly but surely, the students in your
school will begin to board their ights and
head back to visit their parents. You will
be compelled to sleep late and stay in your
pajamas until late. But if you stop to think,
you will realize that throughout the year
you have wanted this free time to get to do
the things you wanted to do on your own
time. Dont waste it away. Your school will
probably not provide meals after a certain
date (usually two weeks before Pesach) this
will leave you trying to fnd food where ever
you can. Spend your frst day food shopping.
Buy some bread, tuna, mayo, peanut butter,
jelly cereal and some snack foods. This way
you wont always be hungry.
FINDING STUFF TO DO
Some students fnd this time to be a great
opportunity to make some extra cash. There
are many cleaning companies that hire
bochurim and seminary students to help
clean peoples houses for Pesach. Aside
from the extra money (which can help if you
want to go on trips on Pesach or afterwards)
it will help you get into the Pesach spirit. If
you dont feel like hiring yourself out (and
you dont need the money) you can offer
to help your teachers with their children
and/or cleaning, shopping etc. Finding a
teachers home in which to help out, will
give you an opportunity to get closer to
your teacher and will also provide you
with a family to spend Pesach with. If you
thought it was diffcult to get close to a
teacher during the year because so many
people were vying for their attention now
you can have your teacher all to yourself
and build mentor relationships that can
last a lifetime. If helping out isnt your
cup-o-tea there are hundreds of interesting
places to visit throughout Israel. Just check
out our travel section. Find some others
who are staying put and prepare a trip
or two. There are lots of fun things to do
around Jerusalem and all over Israel even if
you are on a tight budget.

SELLING YOUR CHOMETZ

Preparing for Shabbos
No matter where you come from in the world there is no Shabbos like a Shabbos experienced
in Israel. In Israel, Friday is a day off so people can prepare properly to greet the Shabbos
queen, and prepare they do. Some people begin their preparations earlier in the week, but on
Friday everyone is busy buying, cleaning, cooking, baking and simply running to prepare for
their day that they spend with Hash-m with no distractions. And then suddenly everything
is quiet, the stores begin to close, the crowds dissipate, the streets feel like a classroom
one minute after the recess bell and there is peace and tranquility for hours. The kids begin
to emerge in their Shabbos fnest after a nice warm bath and then the siren. There is no
experience that compares to it.
For Bachurim and Bachurettes, Erev Shabbos might take on a bit of a different feel. A late
morning, rolling out of bed to meet some friends, perhaps some sporting activity, traveling
to the fnal Shabbos destination etc While before an In-Shabbos your day could include
an even later morning etc. The importance of doing some real preparation for Shabbos
cannot be underestimated. The holiest day, the day we are meant to spend together with
Hash-m. How is it possible to fully appreciate Shabbos when we roll into it like we would roll
into class on a Sunday morning. It is a clear directive from the Torah, One who prepares on
Erev Shabbos, gains spiritually from Shabbos (one who doesnt, doesnt) You have a limited
amount of shabbosim here. Take advantage of your shabbosim; Prepare.
WAYS YOU CAN PREPARE FOR SHABBOS:
Help a teacher / family cook, clean, take kids to the park
Have a learning seder in the morning
Arrive at your hosts early (with their permission) and offer a hand with their kids etc.
Prepare a vort for Shabbos
Do Shnayim Mikrah
Learn the sefer Shabbos Malkusah or another sefer that teaches the greatness of Shabbos.
Dress for Shabbos a bit earlier and go to a Beis Medrash
INVITING YOURSELF FOR SHABBOS
Over the course of the 40 or so Shabbosim you will be spending in Israel (plus Yom Tov),
many of you will be required to fnd your own places to sleep and eat. Many Yeshivas and
Seminaries assist in fnding meals for students while others dont. You will probably want to
visit family, friends etc. but there may be times that you will be at a loss for where to spend
Shabbos meals. Finding yourself on Thursday (or even Friday) without real plans for Shabbos
can be very disheartening. You might fnd it uncomfortable or even weird to ask teachers or
families to be their guest for Shabbos, but that is how it works here. Teachers might invite
you, but more often than not, teachers will expect you to invite yourself. Some teachers view
138
AROUND THE
YEAR IN ISRAEL
inviting students as inviting criticism from other students for not inviting them as well.
Therefore it is good to get into the habit of inviting yourself to teachers houses. They might
not be able to have you on the Shabbos you want, but you can always arrange a raincheck.
TOP 10 WAYS TO ASK TO INVITE YOURSELF FOR SHABBOS
WITHOUT FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE.
1. THE BASIC WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ .I was just wondering if you are making
meals this Shabbos, and if you are having guests.
2. THE RESPECTFUL WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ . I would love to have the honor of
trying your delicious food this Shabbos.
3. THE SILLY WAY: Hi! This is ______. Im making a big seudah in my school and I wanted to
know if you and your family wanted to join me. (.. long pause) or I could just come to you.
(not geneivas daas because they know you are joking)
4. THE TIMID WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ . Well you know um Shabbos is coming? Um
I was um wondering well I um
5. THE COMPLIMENTARY WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ .Remember when I came to
house last time? The food was amazing. I really enjoyed it. (They usually get the hint. )
6. THE FRUMMY WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ . Hi I have an amazing vort for this weeks
parshah that I really want to share with you at your Shabbos table.
7. THE CONFUSING WAY: Hi! how are you? This is _____ .Can I not, not, not, come for Shabbos.
(confuse them with the triple negative. They wont know whether
to say yes or no)
8. THE TEXTING WAY: wnt gsts 4 shbs?
9. THE SEM GIRL WAY: Hi! How are you?
This is _____ . Do you need someone
to watch your children after lunch on
Shabbos?
10. THE CATCHING-UP WAY: call to
catch-up and if they get the hint,
great, and if not hang-up, call back and
say by the way are you having guests
for Shabbos.

TOP 10 WAYS TO NOT GET INVITED BACK FOR SHABBOS
1. Come really late /dont show up
2. Drink too much of the hosts shnapps
3. Cancel on Friday afternoon
4. Say something negative about the hostesses food
5. Overstay your welcome
6. Sit pretty while the hostess clears the table
7. Forget to tell your host about your food allergies and then have an allergic reaction
at the table.
8. Spit out your food at the table
9. Talk about yourself throughout the meal
10. Leave the table during the meal and sit on their couch reading a book.
Be aware that although you are expected to invite yourself out to families for Shabbos you
might fnd that families make excuses for why they cant have you on a specifc week. Dont
be insulted its usually not personal, unless you think it might be (see list above)

TOP 10 EXCUSES A FAMILY MIGHT GIVE WHY YOU CANT COME
FOR SHABBOS.
1. Were going away for Shabbos.
2. We just had a baby. (if they use this one too often you can call them on it.)
3. Were having Girls/Boys (the opposite gender for whoever is calling)
4. Shana Rishona
5. We dont have room
6. Ill ask my spouse. (often just a way of getting out of taking the blame)
7. The kids are sick.
8. Spouse is out of town
9. Were having too many other guests already.
10. We cant not not have you. (Usually a response to the triple negative request) You wont
know whether to come or go
Dont be insulted when you hear these excuses. Sometimes they are true and sometimes
they are just simply because they dont want to have guests that Shabbos. But dont be
deterred if the family is a family that you really want to go to, be persistent. Usually even
if they dont want to have you, theyll get so sick of you asking over and over and over that
theyll just give in.

SPENDING SHABBOSIM
Going away for Shabbos is one of the highlights of your stay in Eretz Yisroel. Shabbosim in
diverse environments gives you insight into the heart of the Jewish family. Seeing Jews from
all walks of life celebrating Shabbos together is an amazing experience. The different shuls
and seudahs are just many of the wonderful goings-on to see. Here is some advice about
spending Shabbos at someone elses home, whether for an entire Shabbos or just a meal.
Make plans early! You might not be thinking about next Shabbos on Sunday afternoon
but the later you push off making plans the fewer options you will have. For some, planning
early means a week before, for others, Thursday night will suffce. However, it is important to
recognize that most hostesses dont begin cooking on Erev Shabbos. So try to let your hosts
know youre coming by Wednesday.
If you made your plans very early, dont forget to call again during the week to confrm your
plans.
Make sure to leave for Shabbos with plenty of time to spare. Erev Shabbos is infamous for
its heavy traffc, and you dont want to get stuck on the highway for Shabbos. Jerusalem
Buses stop running 1 hour before Shabbos begins. Intercity buses stop earlier. Check to be
sure
Bringing gifts is not expected but is nevertheless appreciated as a form of hakaras hatov.
When buying food for your hosts make sure that whatever you buy has a hashgacha that
your hosts will eat. Some suggestions for gifts are:
FLOWERS
CAKE
BOTTLE OF WINE
RUGELACH
NETILAS YADAYIM TOWEL SET
BOX OF CANDY
If you are visiting for the entire Shabbos, show up early enough to settle in before Shabbos.
Find out what time the last bus leaves by calling Egged at *2800.
Helping out on Erev Shabbos is a good way to show your hosts that you appreciate their
invitation.
Your hosts will usually go out of their way to make sure you are happy and comfortable.
Every person has a different standard and you might feel that what they do for you doesnt
meet the standard you are used to. Remember they are putting themselves out in order to
accommodate you. You will always enjoy Shabbos more if you come with few expectations.
This means that if there are no breath mints on your pillow, try not to get upset. Appreciate
whatever you get.
On Shabbos
At the meal try not to carry private conversations around your host, as no host wants to feel
142
AROUND THE
YEAR IN ISRAEL
like a stranger in his/her own home. Its nice to offer to help during the meal. Its also a good
way to express gratitude and get invited back. Dont be shy; most families appreciate when
you help even though they might not ask.
Try to prepare a short dvar Torah for the table. If you have a sefer that you like, prepare
something from it or write down a short vort that you heard during the week. This will help
you have a nicer experience and your host will thank you for adding to their table.
Compliment, Compliment, Compliment. There is nothing more important to a hostess
than to receive a compliment on her food, presentation, and the dcor of her home. If you
compliment properly you will get invited back. The more specifc the compliment the more
the host will appreciate it. Girls - If you say, The _____ was delicious, can I get the recipe?,
you will have won yourself a new best friend.
If you are spending Shabbos, be considerate of your hosts schedule. Davening times and
sleeping times are some of the things you need to be aware of. Davening usually begins
earlier here than back home and many people eat lunch after davening which could be as
early as 11 oclock. Girls, try to be awake before your host returns from shul so they dont have
to wait for you to begin lunch.
It is very nice to offer to take out your hosts children to the park and allow you hosts to
take a nap. People expend a lot of energy preparing for guests and it is a good way to say
thank you.
If you spent a whole Shabbos with your hosts, offer to help clean after Shabbos before you
leave.
If you prefer to stay around your Yeshiva/Seminary for Shabbos dont miss out opportunities
to spend meals with some of your neighbors. Every Shabbos seudah that you go to will
enhance your growth during your year, and will affect how you make your Shabbos table in
the future. Most of your Shabbosim until now have most likely been spent at your parents
table. Spending Shabbos with others will help you gain new insights into Shabbos that you
might not have seen before. If you fnd a family whose Shabbos table you enjoy, try to get
invited back and build a connection. Learn how they built what they built and how you can
do the same.
SHABBOS IDEAS
Students in Israel often fnd themselves on Thursday afternoon with no plans for Shabbos. If
you are one of those you should defnitely maintain a list of people you can call last minute.
If you are looking for an interesting Shabbos there are some places you can go to get invited
out to homes that you wouldnt otherwise visit. If you fnd yourself near the Meah Shearim
area, if you go to either the Karlin-Stolin shul or Breslov you will most defnitely get invited
out by one of the families in shul(Mi Kamcha Yisroel). If you are staying in school ask a
teacher that lives nearby to come to his/her house for a meal. Dont be embarrassed most
teachers would love to have you as a guest and it will help you see your teacher in a different
setting. If you have ideas for Shabbos that you would like to share with others please call
(054)STU-DENT or send us a text with information for where to spend an interesting Shabbos.

Where I Spent my Shabbosim
& Yomim Tovim
Time moves very fast and before you know it, the year you dedicated toward self-growth
in Torah and Middos will come to an end. In a few years, much of this time will be
forgotten but the effect that this year will make upon you, will last forever. Some of the
most powerful lessons you will learn will be made at the Shabbos tables of the people
you had the opportunity to visit. Jotting down where you went each Shabbos and a
small tidbit of information each week will serve you as a reminder to be able to look
back on one of the most inuential years of your life. You might think its unimportant
now, but you cannot imagine how many people look back on their time in Israel and say,
I wish I had kept a diary of my experiences. Good Luck and Good Shabbos!!!

AROUND JERUSALEM & ISRAEL
IN JERUSALEM
Jerusalem hosts some of the fnest parks this side of the Atlantic. Looking for a place to play
a pick-up game of Ultimate or to make a mangal (Bar-b-que) or just to ride the twirly slides to
remind you of old times? Some of the parks have basketball courts, some have green grassy
areas, some have fun slides, and others have great picnic areas, but they all have fresh Israel
air and Kedushas Eretz Yisroel. The following is a list of parks in Jerusalem and its environs.
Feel free to get out and just go to the park. Its a great excursion and its free, and unlike going
out to eat, it wont add pounds to your waist.
GAN SACHER - Gan Sacher is one of the largest parks in Jerusalem and a popular place for
a family BBQ. The park has playgrounds, bike paths and large open felds. There are also a
few full size basketball courts where you can fnd a pick-up game at many times during
your off-time. The city has recently added an area to the park with exercise equipment so
you can work out without having to spend money on going to the gym. (Three minute
walk from the Tachana Merkazit)
BOTANICAL GARDENS - Gan Havradim beautiful botanical gardens in the center of
Jerusalem. Located near Hebrew University in Givat Ram. Great for picnics.

between Katamon and San Simon. This park has a playground, large open grassy areas, a
short bike/walking path, and a full size basketball court.
MONSTER SLIDE PARK - Monster Slide Park on Rechov Chile in Kiryat Yovel is a great park
to take your chessed kids to. There is a huge monster sculpture whose three tongues
function as slides. There is also a large grassy area where you can arrange a picnic lunch.
GAN HAPAAMON - Corner of Jabotinsky and Keren Hayesod - Also known as Liberty Bell
Park, this park has great outdoor basketball courts, a small hockey rink, a large playground
area and lots of shady grassy spots for a BBQ. Just go straight down King George which
becomes Keren Hayesod. The park is right behind the gas station.
PARK GILO: TZVIYA VYITZCHAK STREET, GILO - This beautiful Keren Kayemet LIsrael park
is a forest on a hilltop overlooking Jerusalem. It contains a large childrens playground
and climbing frame, toddler play area, Basketball Court, Trails, Picnic Areas, Adult Exercise
Equipment, and stroller paths. There are no bathrooms or places to buy food or drink at
the park so come prepared. You can get there by taking Buses: 31, 32, 71, 72.
GAN CHAMISHA ASSAR - A nice park with rolling grass and beautiful vistas. Great for
barbeques and kumsits. On the north-east end of Ramat Eshkol. Entrance right off of

Games to Play on Trips/Tiyulim
Im old enough to remember family trips where there were no IPods and my siblings and I
would ask, Are we there yet? over and over and over. I remember my mother trying to come
up with new and innovative games for us to play. Aside from helping the time pass the games
usually helped us bond. The games we played in our car on those long family trips became
our games and we would play them whenever we got in the car no matter how long the
trip. Today, many years have passed and I no longer go on long road trips with my family, but
when we get together and reminisce about old times inevitably the car games come up and
we bond once again. I sometimes wonder if the kids today who each watch their own IPods
or listen to their own mp3s during family trips will have that same opportunity I had to bond.
Just in case you want to take advantage of the time you spend together on long trips and
tiyulim with your friends, below are some games that you can play on your trips. The list is
not exhaustive and you probably can think of many other games and even games that you
played with your family while you were growing up. Many of the games can even be played
off the road in the comfort of your own home and can help you build bonds with friends that
could last a lifetime. You can even use many of these games at Shabbos tables to keep the
table entertaining.
I SPY One person picks an object and says, I spy with my little eyes the
color (the color of the object.) the other players pick try to guess the object
based on asking Yes and no questions.
Variation. I spy something that begins with the letter. This can be more
complicated since you can call things by many different names.
CAR BINGO One person should make a bingo board of 5x5 and write
in each box the name of a different car. (ex. Pickup truck, Station Wagon,
Ambulance, Tractor, Double Truck) make a few different boards so the order
of cars is different on each board. Then, as you sight the vehicle, mark off the
box with that vehicle. First one to get a whole row, column, diagonal wins.

SCAVENGER HUNT Scavenger hunts take time to prepare but they
are tons of fun. Any good scavenger hunt will need someone to go ahead to
the place where the scavenger hunt will take place and prepare the clues for
the game.
FIND THE ALEPH-BEIS on signs as you pass them this is a game
that you can play together. Find the letters of the Aleph-Beis in order on
signs along the route of your tiyul.
20 QUESTIONS (Name that tanach fgure) One person thinks of
a fgure in tanach. The other participants try to guess the person based on
asking Yes/No questions (ex. Is it a man? Is he before Matan Torah? etc.) you
can add rules such as; questions must be asked in an orderly fashion, if you
guess the name of someone and you are wrong you are out etc..) People love
this game and you can use it at Shabbos tables when you go away.
176
FUN &
RECREATION
I TRAVELED THROUGH TIME First person begins I traveled
through time and met(name a person In tanach whose name begins with
an Alef (ex. vraham,) the next player says I traveled through time and met
(repeats the name that was stated previously and adds a name that begins
with beis ex. aruch ben neriah etc
Variations: can be played with names of places objects etc..
GETTING BOARD GAMES Bring travel games with you on
your trips.
WORD CHAIN GAME Start with a two word phrase and each
consecutive person has to take the second word of the phrase and use it to
begin a new phrase and so on. (Ex. First person says Phone Call The next
person begins with call and might say Call Out and so on)
GEOGRAPHY First person names a place, including a city, state,
country, etc. and the next person uses the fnal letter of that place as the
beginning of the name of the next place. (ex. First person says Yerushalayim.
The next person begins with M and might say Mississippi and so on). The
same game can be played with names of people from Tanach (youd be
surprised how many you know).
GOTCHA This game can be played on two-day trips or shabbatonim.
One person who isnt playing makes a list of participant names and words
(ex. Chaim Shlusserhoffer, Hippopotamus) Each Name/word is written on a
separate card and distributed to each of the players. The player must try to
get the person named on the card to say the word on the card. When s/he is
successful s/he calls Gotcha and takes that participants card and tries to get
the person on the new card to say the word on the new card. The person with
the most cards at the end is the winner. Rules can be made as to what you
are allowed to use to get the other person to say the word and what counts
as saying the word (i.e. if the player said a form of the word etc..)

growth that you can achieve during this year cannot be matched by any other period in your
life. Friendships built during this year of growth are often friendships that last a lifetime.
Knowing how to take advantage of your time here is something you will fnd vital to your
Israel Experience.
There are many things that you will need in order to make your seminary year go smoother.
Most of the information is conveniently located throughout this book but there are some
things that girls need that are not as relevant to boys and therefore we have designated this
space to you, the Seminary Student

MAKE-UP
Going away for Shabbos? Lost some of your
makeup on a tiyul, Shabbos trip etc You
might have run out of your favortie Lipliner
or just feel that you need a new kind blush. It
is important to know that you can purchase
the makeup you recognize at the prices
youre used to here in israel. And you dont
have to have your mother send it with Aunt
Bessie whose coming to Israel in three weeks
and staying in Ofakim (wheres that?)
WAXING / ELECTROLYSIS /
LASER TREATMENT
Many Kollel wives have set up top of the
line salons in their homes in order to help
you take care of you cosmetic and hygenic
needs. Most of them have top of the line
equiptment and you can expect the same
quality and care that you would receive
back home.
JEWELRY
It is a very good idea to keep all real jewelry that you are not using constantly, in a school safe.
This applies to all valuables and specifcally to jewelry as well. Your school dorm is not the
safest place for your jewelry even if you have a great hiding place. Better be safe than . On
a lighter note most countries have a specifc style and fashion sense. Israel is no exception.
Many students fnd that there is jewelry that they can get in Israel that fts their style more
than anything they have seen back home. Israel hosts a large selection of jewelry with jewish
themes. Ask around youll fnd that many others have found great jewelry at great prices.
Flatter is your source in Jerusalem for quality American brands.

The Secret to Hair-Care in Israel
HAIRCUTS
Lets face it seminary girls, you are in a new country and you had to leave your hair stylist
behind. Many of you are probably nervous to get your hair cut in Israel. You may worry, Will
they chop off all my hair? Do they really know what they are doing? How do I know they
are good? Maybe I can just make it through the whole year without getting a haircut! Two
common pitfalls of that mode of thinking:
1. You get so desperate for a haircut that you cave and let your inexperienced friend
cut your hair.
2. You spend a fortune in some hotel salon thinking that the increase in price means an
increase in talent.
Well the good news is, you do not have to fall prey to that mistaken logic.
Believe it or not, there are American-licensed hair professionals living right here in Israel.
Many have set up salons in their homes and offer exible hours to accommodate your busy
seminary schedule.
HAIR TOOLS
Because of the high-wattage that blow-dryers use, you may fnd it more benefcial to buy
an Israeli blow-dryer for your year in seminary. An American hair straightener can work
with the proper converter, but it often does not work like before. Some straighteners do
not reach a workable temperature, while others can become very hot and easily damage or
even burn your hair. Using a thermal protector and serum on your hair helps protect it while
simultaneously maintaining its bounce and shine. Be very careful when converting these
tools, because if the wattage of your device does not match the converter it is likely to blow.

Kvorim
Eretz Yisroel is the burial site of some of the holiest people in our illustrious history. During
your stay here you should set aside some time to visit some of these mekomos hakedoshim..
Most Kvorim can only be gotten to with special tours or with private transportation. Your
Yeshiva/Seminary might take you to some of the more famous ones. Many tours advertise
on signs in the center of the city.Artzeinu Tours arrange trips in English to many of the
mekomos hakedoshim..

the holocaust; the ones who kept Shabbos
in the worst situations and risked their lives
to put on teflin. The ones who ate kosher
as hard as it may have been or didnt eat
their measly bread rations on pesach. There
are hundreds and thousands of stories like
these and this is really the lesson we have to
incorporate. Just go to any Jewish bookstore
and see the many Orthodox publications
out there. We can all learn a lot from these
giants of our nation who in the darkest of
times never gave up. So if you go keep these
ideas in mind.

and seawater, thus widening and expanding
them into many, wonderful shapes. A man-

grottos. At the site, a cable car will take you
down the cliff to the grottos, an audiovisual

it is covered in sand and is not very arable. This coupled with the fact that there are a few
army bases, secret and not-so-secret, makes much of the area off limits for tourists. So
unless you like sand or being chased by the IDF theres not much to do. Heres a short list
of places to visit;

NECHAMAS BAKERY began in the 1910s by our
great-grandpa David Nechama. Grandpa David had two
rules above all else. The customer comes rst, and, All
dough must be made with love. These rules have been
the trademark of Nechamas Bakery since that time.
When you enter a Nechama Bakery you feel a family
warmth, as all our bakeries are still family run. Come
visit us at our six dierent locations throughout
Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh.
Visit your local Nechamas
and try our extensive array of baked goods
including: fresh breads (white and whole
wheat), pastries, rugelach, cinnamon
buns, apple strudel, cookies, challahs,
birthday cakes, pies, quiches, and some
of the nest sandwiches made on our
freshly baked rolls.
