I have never gone to any retreates nor was I ever affiliated with lev Chana or any chabbad organizations. I am forever thankful and blessed I was able to join this lev Chana retreat in lakearrowhead it was the best thing I have done for myself in a long long time. I felt so empowered spending a weekend with strong, capable, beautiful single moms. Thank you to everyone involved who made this happen I can't thank you enough.

This retreat helped me to regroup and refocus my mind and energy on Hashem because He is the one who truly runs the world. I went two time and it was absolutely wonderful. The women that I met and bonded with are amazing!!! The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is superb!!! The rooms are glorious!!! The speakers are amazing and insightful. I would definitely recommend this experience to any single mom out there. May they continue to help anyone that needs.

The best non profit for women around. I went to Bais Chana for the first time last summer and it was the best decision I made. I walked in one person and left a week later totally transformed. The staff is incredible, the support and knowledge from everyone is unmeasurable. Whether you go to one of their many retreats they offer or you learn online remotely it all impacts the growth of Jewish women everywhere. Bais Chana does so much for so many women all around the world. Go Bais Chana!

Bais Chana Women International is an organization that helps hundreds of women in their self-growth and development. It gives internal strength, independence and a sense of empowerment to its participants.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In its early days I was a student and participant.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have scholarship money available for women who are motivated to attend the program, but cannot afford it.

Bais Chana is amazing. That means the people are exceptional, the teachers are profound, thought-provoking, and make themselves available for hours of personal time with anyone who wants one on one time with them. And the food is delicious and healthy!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it longer!

Bais Chana is less a "camp" than a warm and inspiring community for Jewish women of all ages and affiliations. The people at Bais Chana are so consistently kind and giving that one feels one has entered a different universe. Although some of the Chabad philosophy taught in the courses was difficult for me to swallow as a very modern Jew, on the whole, Bais Chana provided a uniquely positive experience, and I look forward to returning.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It's hard to say; probably none.

My sister and I signed up for this summer experience not knowing really anything about it. The morning we were scheduled to leave I was hysterical and in tears because I had no clue what to expect and didn't want to be spending my summer in the middle of no where with strangers. Regardless I flew to Minnesota and went on with camp. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very nice and welcoming girl. The driver, girl, my sister and I all drove to the Bais Chana headquarters where we were greeted by more girls who were all very welcoming. By the end of the day almost everyone had got to camp and we were all getting to know each other. By the second day we had all gotten to know each other better and by that time I was becoming more and more comfortable. Little did I know by the end of the summer i was looking at these girls as more then friends, but sisters. The 3 weeks were filled with learning and growing as Jewish women, friendships, trips, and memories that will last a lifetime. My time in Bais Chana really changed my views on life and how I was going to lead mine. By the end of the INDESCRIBABLE 3 weeks I was hysterical yet again to be leaving what I had initially been so scared to come to, and ended up being the best summer of my life. I can't thank the incredible staff enough for the incredible experience I had while with them. I can't wait to continue going to as many Bais Chana programs as possible from now on!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOT CHANGE A THING! It is beyond perfect just the way it is! Touching and inspiring so many Jewish women around the world!
