I have had the merit to see Bais Chana empower women to be all that they can be, way beyond what they imagined.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach many more possible students.

Bais Chana is a unique organisation, in it's ability to bring together women who are different in almost every way... (age, character, upbringing, nationality and career..) and blend them into one harmonious group, learning from and with one another. A single program which caters to the very individual needs of each participant (some facing serious challenges), is hard to come by. Participants leave changed, always for the better. The directors have worked hard, and succesfully created a haven of physical comfort, spiritual warmth and emotional growth.

Seeing women ( both young and old) flourish in the wholesome environment of Bais Chana. Not just the depth of education you find in the lecture hall..the atmosphere at BC breeds happiness, personal fortitude and empowers the women to let their best shine.

Great Experience! I have gone to the the Bais Chana girl's camp, not once, but 2 times. It really helps people (esp. girls) to get to know what and who they are. They develop a bond with their faith, what it is, and how to express that. If your Jewish, you must look into this. It will recharge you in some way.

Bais Chana brings together women of all ages and stages of their intellectual, emotional and spiritual development. Through lectures and small group discussion with outstanding lecturers, I have been able to broaden my view of how I look at people and the experiences that occur in my life.

after having such a positive experience with my own teenage daughter going to a bais chana retreat we decided to get involved and help. the camaraderie and acceptance of both the counselors and other participants make a world of difference for the teens. i have seen numerous times girls stay up all night talking to help other girls.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

beyond dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to help more teens and perhaps start with helping teen boys as well

I was blessed to be a part of this incredible organization for a weekend, as I witnessed the transformation of teenage girls struggling with issues of gender and family, so challenging during these pubescent years. We used dialogue, art and music to help each young girl find her voice as a unique and significant individual, an integral part of the whole: the framework of Jewish Family and Community Culture.

Bais Chana is a real eye-opener. People come from all walks of life: Some are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives; some are just curious about Judaism; some are seeking answers to important questions; some are looking to learn about what their own heritage has to offer; some just want to have fun. All gain an experience that is potentially life-altering. In an open and non-judgmental, non-confrontational way, Bais Chana tackles those all-important questions and brings insight into the human existence. The atmosphere is at once intellectual and down-to-earth. You'd be surprised to see every age participating - from 13 until 83 (and probably older!). There are also fun adventures like a snorkel trip, as well as beautiful natural surroundings and accommodations.

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

The effects it has on people. Attendees often leave inspired and ready to take a new turn in their lives. It gave me a renewed appreciation for my own heritage. And I was humbled by the sacrifice and commitment of others who were there.
