At Ma’ayanot, we believe in creating a generation of young women who can achieve and contribute. Through our advisory program, Mehanekhet, our students engage in thoughtful discussions in a safe and nurturing environment which facilitates social, emotional, and religious growth. With a faculty advisor (mehanekhet), students reflect on topics that are meaningful and relevant to their lives as young Jewish women in the twenty-first century. These discussions help our students prepare for the future. The environment is supportive, fostering teacher-student relationships that allow students to find meaning and connection.

Examples of topics discussed include:

  • Friendship
  • Adjusting to high school
  • Balancing work loads
  • Study skills
  • Perceptions of beauty
  • Assertiveness
  • College & Israel
  • Health & wellness
  • Preparing for the future
