    Many of the Modern Orthodox innovations, attitudes, and outlook that the author finds at SAR one can find in israeli schools, mostly in Jerusalem and the Gush Etzion area. Yes, these areas include many American olim, and yes, American Modern Orthodoxy of the left wing variety has been influencing the more Modern Israeli Dati Leumi society. However, many American "Modern Orthodox" schools suffer from the same problems Israeli schools suffer from in this regard. Many American Orthodox schools are staffed by American charedim, even MO schools. In some Orthodox schools 19 year old girls who studied in Israel for one year in seminary teach Jewish Studies and Hebrew. In more MO schools the girls are 22 year old Sten College graduates teaching for two years before law school and/or marriage. You need to compare like with like. Riverdale's equivalent is Efrat, or one of the religious kibbutzim if you prefer solely Israeli accents. There are so many amazing things happening in Modern Orthodoxy in Israel, especially in women's education.
