WebAds, which helps keep this blog afloat (er, pays a small percentage of my internet bill each month?), has a couple of ads going on now that may be of particular interest to some of the readers of this blog, so... here are the basics. Click through for details:
- SIACH is a one-year post-high school program in Israel (in Jerusalem) that is rather different from most. Run by R' David Harbater (Orthodox), it is both co-ed and pluralistic, catering to students from all backgrounds: Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, unaffiliated... geared primarily towards the intellectual student with an open mind and lots of questions. The structure of the program is discussion and debate (hence: Siach) on any and all issues that can involve Judaism. They aren't trying to be mekarev students and make them religious, just give them an incredibly strong foundation in Judaism, and the tools to work with to apply them to their lives. Besides the education side, there are plenty of tiyulim (trips) and the like. Registration is now, and it is filling up, so people who are interested should register now, or ask for more information by clicking here.
- Nefesh B'Nefesh has a December 29th flight geared primarily toward singles who wish to make aliyah with other singles and still has some spaces available. It is a chartered NbN flight, and those interested should contact Nefesh B'Nefesh.
