I am a teacher in Sharfmans, and I am very happy to give you some feedback on how Amanda is doing. She is doing great! She is a gem of a girl!
I have made a nice kesher with her and I find her to be highly motivated, curious and inquisitive, asking good questions and hopefully getting good answers!
She is really, I would say, towards the top of the school as far as ambitiousness to grow. She is taking her classes seriously, really participating in them as well,
and really working through ideas, hashkafa, and halacha.
She has made some private meetings with me – to discuss some of her issues, and is really striving and growing.
Amanda will also IYH be coming on the Legacy Poland trip that I lead with 2 other Rabbis. We say it is a trip of death camps and cemeteries, and yet it is the most
alive trip a person could go on! So she is making a very wise choice, indeed, to add this incredible opportunity to her seminary year. It will only enhance her life!
So, to sum up, we are very happy to have Amanda in Sharfmans, and she is utilizing her time there – in a wonderful and growing way. She seems to be seizing her moments
and making the most out of her time there.
If I can be of any further help to you regarding Amanda, please do not hesitate to contact me.

To Whom This May Concern,
As a teacher at Bnot Torah Institute, I have the pleasure of having Andrea as my student.
Andrea sits in class and I can see that she is just drinking up all the information and knowledge she is being taught. She is a thinking girl who asks questions and expresses great interest in class.
I see that Andrea has come to the realization that due to her background she has a long way to go. She is diligent about implementing what she has learned in her life. Her dress is very becoming of a true Bat Yisroel. In truth, it is only recently that I have developed a personal relationship with Andrea and can see her deep desire to learn and grow. In fact, she is seriously considering a second year of learning in Israel.
I hope that this letter in some way is a testimonial to Andrea’s growth and dedication to Torah and Ahavat Eretz Yisroel.
Wishing you all the best,
Mrs. S. Gibraltar
