A few years ago, a friend of mine was attending Bais Chana and she suggested I join her. I have since attended numerous programs. Bais Chana has shown me the absolute beauty that is uncovered in humanity when competition and pettiness are brushed away and are replaced with acceptance, empowerment, spirituality, and growth. Frequently I find myself quoting things I've learnt on a program to friends, family, and co-workers. I highly reccomend Bais Chana to any woman looking for a quality experience!

Snorkel and study is a terrific program where young women can discuss ideas, religion, family life, and many more important topics. The faculty were outstanding. They incorporated humor, sincerity, and warmth as they broached a variety of subjects: life, Torah, happiness, marriage, myths, and much more. Staff and faculty were available to teach or counsel students one-on-one.

Attending Bais Chana was an incredibly empowering experience. The program allowed me to have a greater understanding of my Jewish heritage, boost my overall self-awareness, and create meaningful and lasting relationships with other college-aged women. The teachers and educators were both knowledgeable and compassionate role models with strong sense of purpose and commitment. The topics we explored promoted positivity and values. I know that the one weekend I spent on Snorkel & Study will be forever enriching.

I have always had an interesting relationship with my Judaism and sometimes felt like I was clinging to the outskirts of each movement. I was dying for more education and to meet like-minded women. Along came Bais Chana. I am so thankful to have had the experience, which I couldn't have had without their scholarships. It has inspired me and empowered me and now I am pursing more Jewish education in the hopes of becoming an advocate for women in Judaism.

I love Bais Chana. My daughters found Bais Chana when they were in 9th and 10th grade. They have a difficult life as they both have Cystic Fibrosis and although we had been managing up until we found Bais Chana to lead good lives, positive lives, we needed more and we needed more answers. Bais Chana gave our whole family a new perspective, an invigorated perspective to carry on, to gather strength, to forge ahead and know that everything is as it should be and that G-d provides what we need. Since we found Bais Chana, my girls have grown into confident, happy, grounded, focused young women who know what they are supposed to do in life and when they have questions, they know where to find the answers. As a family, they have brought my husband and me along as well, and we have all grown and intensified the good relationship we have always had. We attend as many Bais Chana events as possible and always look forward to the strength and valuable life lessons they teach us. I cannot say enough good things about Bais Chana. Our lives would be completely different withouth this wonderful institution. Thank you G-d for helping us find them!!!!! And thanks for the online resources that we can use everyday!!!!

Bais Chana is a Jewish, Chabad-Lubavitch program that runs retreats for teenage girls and women. I attended Jewish Un-Camp, the teenage program, and I visited a woman's retreat. All three of the experiences were hands down the most amazing, life changing, empowering experiences I have ever had. I arrived lost, confused and nervous, but after only a few minutes I had met girls of all ages that would turn out to be my closest friends. The weekend started with ice breakers to help us get to know one another better and get conversations flowing. We then went on to do amazing activities like improv games, art projects and zumba classes. All of the activities were a lot of fun, but I feel that there are two things that make Bais Chana so amazing: the people you meet, and the open, highly informative conversations you will have with Rabbi Manis Friedman. Every single teenager or woman will find amazing friendships at Bais Chana. Everyone accepts you for exactly who you are, regardless of your back round. You are Jewish, and that's what matters. I think a classic Bais Chana experience is having a deep, three hour conversation with someone you just met, and feeling like you have known them forever after just one day. The Rabbi's talks are equally amazing. One can ask any question that is on their mind, and they will know that they will get an honest, true answer that they can understand and apply to their lives. Teenagers can go and get an answer to any question they have, whether its a question from the Rabbi, a counselor, or another camper. The teenage years are a time when people are usually lost and searching. Bais Chana gives girls a solid idea of their purpose, who they are, and the direction they are meant to follow. As a result, the girls are more mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy when they return from the program. Most of them also return with a whole bunch of deep connections. They have strong connections with their new girlfriends, their counselors, and most importantly G-d, which I think is the ultimate goal of a religious program. Every single Jewish woman should go to Bais Chana.
