e’re sending this magazine off to print just hours after Shavuos, and I’m still replaying some of the conversations we had with the seminary girls who were our guests. At some point, our table talk turned to the invisible but tangible “styles” of different seminaries. There are so many elements that play a role in a seminary’s atmosphere — the educational approach, the teachers, the students, the rules, the relationships between staff and students, even the location. One of our conversations meandered into the different types of staff members employed by seminaries, and rethinking the exchange, I realized it mirrors a similar dynamic at the magazine.
