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.
This past summer was my first year as a volunteer at Bais Chana! It has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had! Bais Chana is a warm place with total acceptance! Every person there was so kind, friendly and warm. The learning there was exceptional! Ask any questions and get ready to be blown away! We all walked away inspired, rejuvenated and ready to start the year!
Hinda Leah Scharfstein, the program's director is very caring and makes sure the program is top notch and everyone's need are well taken care of. Rabbi Manis Friedman, the main teacher, is fascinating. His knowledge of the Torah and his delivery is exceptional!
Bais Chana is a place that every person should experience!
I joined Bais Chana as a volunteer for the teens, and womans sessions and was, to say the least, blown away! The atmosphere is incredibly positive and warm. The classes, deep and yet entertaining, so much so that they could go on for hours without anyone noticing. I love Bais Chana for the fact that it is an escape from a world of turmoil and a place of spiritual growth for all those passing through it's doors.
Bais Chana keeps me going :)
The people behind the organization stay true to their very focused goal of reaching out to and empowering women of all ages. There really is no other way to say it. Bais Chana leaves you with a feeling of connection and motivation as well as helps you find the tools you need to accomplish anything.
Bais Chana Women International Inc is always my first choice organization to help out as its objectives are meaningful and life changing in the most effective way.
Bais Chana Int'l has a miraculous way of touching lives, not only for the duration of an event, but for a life time! I personally have watched teens, young adults and individuals well into their senior years have their lives transformed through this organization's endless commitment, warmth and sincerity. The testimonies are legendary!
A bold statement, yet no farther from the absolute truth - Bais Chana is magically life-giving and empowering for its participants and their generations to come.
I had a very uplifting experience when I attended the Bais Chana shabbaton. It was refreshing to be in a relaxed and non- judgemental environment. I also enjoyed listening to Rabbi Friedmans intelligent and inspiring words. This organization is absolutely amazing and I'm looking forward to more fun filled weekends!
Bais Chana is an unusual place that immerses its staff, volunteers and participants in an environment of healthy growth and teaches and inspires all who walk through its door to make positive changes in their lives and to learn how to view the world around them in a healthier fashion.
I found the atmosphere at Bais Chana extremely open and refreshing, one in which every individual felt the freedom to express her experiences and perspectives in a completely non-judgmental environment. The scholars and teachers on the staff are professional and helpful, offering classes which cater to both the beginner and the advanced. An extremely high level of education coupled with a warm and vibrant community of women.
Bais Chana has provided a place of warmth, friendship, comraderie throughout.
One comes out feeling invigorated, inspired, refreshed & re-energized.
I've been a counselor on multiple Bais Chana programs. On each one of them, I've observed first-hand how the lives of Jewish women transformed for the better.
The lectures and workshops help women of all ages find more meaning in their lives.
The relationships that are built among the participants last way beyond the week that the program runs. They are deep friendships that override age gaps, geographical distance, and time difference.
I think every Jewish woman should have an opportunity at least once in her life to partake in this meaningful and enjoyable program.
