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!!

Bais Chana was a great program that gave me the space to learn more about my religion and about myself through their Winter Break Workshop. The teachers were some of the best in the world, and they provided a setting for us to get personal help and advice that made us stronger, wiser, and more informed citizens of the world and ourselves.

Bais Chana is a warm home that women from all walks of life can come to to get the spiritual and emotional nurturing they need to face the challenges of the world.

The Great!

The teachers at Bais Chana were so incredible that even though classes were slotted to be 1.5 hours, often times they would roll into 3 hour sessions because the students did not want to stop learning from their teachers. At no other time in my life have I ever seen 90 women together in a room, who were virtually strangers, and through their Fabraagen event, they created a warm, open environment in which all the women showed each other compassion and caring. It was a beautiful experience all around!

I was introduced to Bais Chana for the first time in Israel, and I thought the concept itself was fantastic! Just women, of all ages and different backgrounds learning and bonding together in a very relaxed and pleasant athmosphere. Rabbi Manis Friedman is one of the most special educators out there - he has a unique approach to Judaism and relates to each student on an individual level and that is not an easy task to fulfill. I've been involved with different organizations throughout the years and had very different experiences with Jewish educators - Bais Chana is by far on top of the list with the efficiency and depth of learning and really touching the lives of their students.

The Great!

Bais Chana helped me when I was in need of guidance and direction. The people there were supportive, insightful, wise, open minded and warm. I was invited to think about things in new ways, and encouraged to grow and become more. I have been part of bais chana for a couple years now, but and i will always consider them my family.

If there ever was a magical place where an atmosphere was conducive to both introspection, and reaching out to others....it is Bais Chana!
Bais Chana helped me to heal from trauma from domestic violence in a way that no other organization could. It is one thing to go through the motions of
normal life, to the huge achievement of discovering that my heart still beats with passion and wants to go on to create a positive, spiritually practical life. In providing the unique perspectives, insights and awareness into each individual Basi Chana helps you to illuminate the grey corners of life and bring you out into the sunlight, refreshed, confident and able.
Women from all walks of life, levels of spiritual commitment, different socio/economic backgrounds come to listen, be heard, experience and connect in a profoundly enriching way that will change their lives forever for the positive.

The Great!

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

My adolescent girls as well as in communities thru out the United States and around the world, I have met women of all ages, whose lives have been meaningfully impacted.... The feeling of unity, continuity, and the possible women enhances and empowers each of our inborn talents and latent voices!

Bais Chana has helped me change my life... As a student and someone who benefited from donations to this organization I hope that they get more and more support so they can help other girls like me! All of the staff and teachers of Bais Chana are so committed to bettering the lives of individuals and then giving tools to the attendees of their programs to help others! There's not another program like Bais Chana anywhere!!!

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

Had such an amazing experience in Bais Chana's Snorkel and Study program. I was greatly influenced by the Chassidic teachings and truly inspired by the other woman; the kindness, warmth and wisdom that goes on in Bias Chana is just incredible.

The first time I attended Bais Chana's Retreat was as a young woman, quite new to Judaism, over 14 years ago. During my time there, I experienced an amazingly powerful and uplifting week, with lectures by various women, and talks by Rabbi Friedman. The talks were enlightening, touching and moving. The sense of comraderie amoung the women, and the care of each person there was truly unique. I returned to Bais Chana again two years ago, delighted to find that the same energy, the same amazing learning, and the same unique environment for personal growth and connecting with women had not been lost. I encourage any woman, of any age and level of observance, to attend one of these retreats. You will not be disappointed.

The Great!

More feedback...

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

that I was able to have a meaningful, enriching experience in a very warm and caring environemnt with amazing women.

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

truly amazing and caring people!

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

reach out to more women by offering scholarships and more financial support. Perhaps also do more advertising.

Ways to make it better...

nothing...it could not have been any better...I just wish I could have stayed longer!
