The article discusses the educational character of Israel's post-secondary religious seminaries for women who identify as Haredi-Leumi (ultra-Orthodox nationalist). On the basis of rabbinic texts originating in the Haredi-Leumi "Har Hamor" circle, it describes the educational goals of these institutions; their doctrines regarding women's roles in public and political life; their construction of feminine identity; and their ways of dealing with the alternative narratives in modern society concerning women's roles in the public sphere.
