mushka18, who is only 16. We now know that you're 16, live in London, and weren't educate Lubavitch. Tell us a bit more, and we can find out your address...

Look, I'm not trying to be sarcastic or mean. But you just put a first name, personal details, and a city on a public forum....and it's just worth your while to be careful. Not all who look at this are as nice as most of those who post on this forum (yes, including T613, noahides, and even mcp, who is quite harmless, though annoying).

In regards to your question: I don't know. But to all those out there who are young teens, putting ages, names, cities, and family details on the web...please, please, please be careful. Please....for your own sakes....please....

Thank you Majorthinker.

Mushkie, please at least let your parents read what you are doing here. If you feel uncomfortable having htem see it, it's probably wrong.

It may also be she is from LA, CA, and the London bit is just a red herring...
MT - I have been accused of many things in the past, but nice was never one of them...
Back to the drawing board...

Let's hope so. From PMs MT and myself think otherwise.

It's scary, how people don't realize the power of the internet. When they do, they often forget the power of HaShem.
Mushkie, please realize how lucky you are to have landed on a relatively safe site, where people are not jumping on you trying to get you to give them information in order to harm you. We care about you, that is why we beg you not to endanger yourself needlessly.

Thank you all very much for your concern.
I do B''H know of the dangers but to be realistic, im on a lubavitch sight and im sure there are many Mushka's.
London has 10 million people, so whoever thinks they can try it with me, their wrong. Im not a stupid.
Im really happy with this site and it got amazing and wise people on it.
Thanx!

Mushka, that's true, but you still need to be careful. Most people do not realize how much they tell about themselves online...
I'm not trying to be your father/mother, but I do want you to be careful. Please...for your own sake.

Who says "nice" is always a virtue?

In this case, it is. I meant that as a compliment.

I think it said any age on the website.

It may be worth inquiring further.

In Montreal and Europe they finish high school at 16; in the rest of the world, both boys and girls graduate at 18.

I know. My biggest obstacle is my age.
i heard of the canadian sems accept 16 yr olds. Any info on bmc montreal will be a help.
its really strange that someone mentioned geatshead as i was thinking a lot of going there till im old enough to go to a lubavitch sem. I nearlly applied to the new sem there But my cousin went to a litvish sem and said its really diffrent hashkofos and learning.
however i still need to make a decision.
HELP

Unless you're a super-strong Chabadnik, don't go to a Litvish seminary. The peer pressure during the yeshiva/seminary year is huge, and you won't come out Chabad if you can't stand up to it. Even if you do, chances are that you won't be as "chassidish" when you come out as you were when you went in. [Or at least, so they say.]

I didn't recommend it.
I suggested it. I wrote "perhaps" and it "may" be worth "inquiring further."

I did hear about one girl who was frum, but hadn't studied in Lubavitch, who went there. This is just one person, but still it may be worth checking further with regard to the age and background etc. Perhaps someone on this forum may have some input on it.

That would be a big help if i have more info on machon chana.
I looked on their website and it didn't state the age.
Is it also intense learning?
