Leadership Opportunities

 חוֹבַת נְשֵׁי וּבְנוֹת הַחֲסִידִים יִחְיוּ לַעֲמוֹד בְּשׁוּרָה רִאשׁוֹנָה בְּכָל מִפְעָל שֶׁל חִזּוּק הַדָּת וְהַיַּהֲדוּת בִּכְלָל, וּבִפְרָט בְּעִנְיַן טַהֲרַת הַמִּשְׁפָּחָה. וַעֲלֵיהֶם לְאַרְגֵּן חֶבְרַת בְּנוֹת הַחֲסִידִים לְחַזֵק כָּל דַרְכֵּי הַחֲסִידִים בְּעִנְיָנֵי הַדְרָכָה וְחִנּוּךְ כְּמוֹ שֶׁהָיָה בְּבָתֵּי הַחֲסִידִים מֵאָז וּמִקֶּדֶם.

It is the duty of chassidic women and girls to stand in the front line of every activity [that seeks] to strengthen the observance of Yiddishkeit in general, particularly with regard to taharas hamishpachah (“family purity”). They should organize a society for the daughters of the chassidic brotherhood, whose aim is to buttress all aspects of the chassidic lifestyle with regard to guidance and education, in the age-old tradition of chassidic households.   [Hayom yom 21 Shevat]

At BCMS we encourage and guide our students to use their talents to teach and reach out - to be  lamplighters, neiros l’hoier. Seminary is a time where girls develop and reveal their inner strengths by choosing things they are good at or taking on new challenges.

Students will have many opportunities to take leadership positions in Chinuch and Shlichus.  The girls acknowledge that the more they invest the more rewarding it is and it becomes the highlight of their year.
