Here at BCMS, extra curricular programs are very important to us. We put great emphasis on in-school as well as after school activities to ensure a well rounded Seminary experience. Here’s a glimpse into some of the extra curricular programs Chaya Mushka Seminary has to offer. 


Makeup course

Our makeup course truly sets BCMS apart from all other seminaries. With an incredible and experienced teacher, our girls get to expand their knowledge in makeup, exploring their colours and palettes. The weekly course gives them the opportunity to truly feel beautiful as every Jewish woman should. 

Weekly scrapbooking

Everyone wants to remember their time in seminary. What better way to document it than scrapbooking? With printed pictures, stencils and stickers, once a week we work on creative scrapbooks filled with memories to look through for years to come.  

Chavrusa night

Mivtzoyim night is one to look forward to! At the start of our year, our girls are paired up with ladies from different Chabad houses in the Montreal area. Every week, they get together to learn and discuss different concepts in Torah and Chassidus. The Chavrusas create a truly deep bond, some keeping in touch long after seminary! 

Ice Kafia

It’s a pun on words, see what we did there? Twice a week we start our day bright and early to learn different aspects of Chassidus. Waking up early takes serious Iskafia, but an iced coffee on the side certainly makes it easier! 

The Derher Program

Gifted the monthly Chassidishe Derher magazine, the girls have the opportunity to read and broaden their knowledge on Chabad history and Chabad perspectives among many other topics. They gather for a Derher Farbrengen to discuss and share what they gained from that month's articles. At the end of each month, there’s a grand Derher Gameshow based on all the information they’ve learned. These timeless lessons are sure to inspire their decisions in the future Jewish homes that they will build. 

Weekly Melava Malka

Every Shabbos spent at BCMS is one to remember. Whether it’s a Shabbos in, Shabbaton or meals hosted by families in the community, we like to end it off with good energy. Our Melava Malkas vary from Farbrengen style, to DIY suppers and grand group games. Whatever it may be, Motzei Shabbos in seminary is always something to look forward to! 


Besides for the beautiful snow and ice storms, Montreal has lots to see! Throughout the year, our girls get to visit scenic views and recreational centres to create great memories during their year together!
