Batya Kessler  LOS ANGELES, CA
My name is Batya N. Kessler, I am 18 years old and a senior at Ohel Chana High Shool in Los Angeles, CA. Next year I plan on going to a seminary to have a year of spiritual learning and growth. It would be a year where I will be able to closer my connection to G-d as well as become more independent within myself. Seminary is a time where I would be able to solely focus on becoming a better and more solid Jewish girl.

I have been taught my whole life that as a Jewish girl I am the daughter of a King; a G-d; I am a princess.  Which just so happens to be the meaning behind my name; Batya: Daughter of G-d. I feel that by me going to seminary it will give me the chance to live up to my identity as well as my name. Going to seminary is super important for me because it will give me a chance to be able to learn Torah to my fullest before heading out into the big world. By me going to seminary, I feel that I will gain tools with regards to raising a Jewish, frum, and Chassidishe houslehold and life.

My family is unable to fully pay for me to go to seminary due to it being too expensive, but me being a frum Jewish girl, feel that it is my duty to do all that I can to go.
There are 8 children in my family and I am the 6th child. I try my hardest in all I can to help out with my family with regards to whatever needs to get done.
My parents are both super hard working and loving parents that would do anything for their children. They are constantly having to pay for our Jewish schooling, our housing bills, medical bills etc., so them having to now pay for seminary is very stressful. I feel that because of all they do for me, it is now time for me to go out of my way as well as step out of my comfort zone and ask for help from other resources to please donate money to help me go to seminary.

One of the main seminary's I am applying to is Ohel Chana in Melbourne, Australia. This seminary is more focused on shlichus as well as being a part of a community.

I feel that this seminary would be best for me because it fits my personality very well. I am an outgoing girl who loves to smile and sing! I love being a part of something special and meaningful. And me knowing that I would be spending a year learning, becoming more spiritual and chassidish, and helping others would be an unbelievable experience.

My goal is to reach $18,000. I know it is a lot to ask for, however this would help my family immensley because the less they have to pay the easier it will be for them.
I ask of you to please give however much you can. Whether its a dollar or two dollars, every penny counts! I hope to reach my goal, but if Chas vshalom I don't, than at least I still know that I have done my part in raising as much as I can to help out my parents.

Thank you and please share!
Together our Acts of kindness will bring Moshiach now!

With love,
Batya N. Kessler
