Out of the Orthobox and "CollegeMinus"


longskirts

Recommended Posts

A form of CollegeMinus is very popular among right-wing Yeshivish Orthodox Jews. They don't go through the Christian CollegePlus program, of course, but they take CLEPs and finish up with a few courses from either Thomas Edison or a local college. From Ruchi's Facebook, it looks like she's considering it for her eighteen-year-old daughter.

Update: She says in the blog comments that her daughter will attend a local college and live at home, because, "We feel her spiritual values will be far too difficult to maintain on campus."

Link please?

If "spiritual values" are a concern, it's not as if there aren't many legitimate universities that would fully support a student maintaining a high level of Orthodox Jewish observance. What about Yeshiva University? Or even Brandeis? Oh, right, we can't do that because we don't want our womenfolk to get too uppity from being all educated and stuff. :roll:

Wow, thats not a good excuse. Her daughter is old enough to go to college, therefore her spiritual values belong to herself and its up to her to maintain them, not mommy, daddy or any of the people she meets.

They are right-wing yeshivish, so Yeshiva University would be way too liberal. Brandeis is not an Orthodox school, so out of the question. I'm a little surprised they don't even consider Touro, though.

Ruchi describes a "panic-stricken" nightmare in which she fails at a religious obligation, starts to cry, and wakes up relieved that it was only a dream.

Maybe she doesn't find her version of right-wing Orthodoxy quite so peaceful and fulfilling as she often claims? I've had similar dreams about rituals, but only in times of religious conflict and stress.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
