Bais Chana is a warm place to come.... when you want to learn, grow, be inspired...and eat well:) With many types of women from many different places, everyone is encouraged on their own journey. In the year that I worked at Bais Chana, I got to see many women and teens make changes and gather the strength to implement those changes back home. Relationships for a lifetime, inspiration for a lifetime, Changes of a lifetime.

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

a year of inspiration and growth

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

get more funding so more women can have the opportunity to have this amazing experience.

Learning in Bais Chana was a wholesome experience for me. It was everything together, the beautiful physical location, deep thought provoking lectures, great food, and meaningful discussions that made it a wonderful place to be.
Discussions and lectures ranged all topics from morality and the purpose of life to mortal man and the finality of death.
I feel like the Bais Chana experience allowed me to walk away a more thoughtful mindful and possibly moral human being.

With the possibility of running on a much larger scale Bais Chana's positive impact can reach that much further and enrich many more.

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

St. Paul, Minnesota

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

Allow more people to participate at once. Increase the number of sessions and locations.

Bais Chana, specially, the snorkel and study program was one week filled with inspiration, life and beauty. Although it was just one week, it was through this short time which enabled me to not only dive into the sea, but dive into the heart of life, which is Torah.

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

every aspect of my daily living.

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

add more lecturers.
