Beis Chana's Snorkel and Study program was a life changing experience for me. The classes were phenomenal, providing me a deeper and captivating look in to what's behind our Jewish traditions. Growing up in a conservative Jewish environment, I really appreciated the new perspective that the program gently illustrated. And of course, I made lasting friendships. I did Beis Chana at least three years ago and I just met up in Jerusalem with some friends from the program! Beis Chana attracts girls who really care. Good-hearted people, great classes, and of course, great food! I would recommend, and have recommended, Beis Chana to any and every Jewish woman regardless of their background.

The Great!

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

My entire being. I am more confident in my every day work, my relationships, and even when I'm alone with myself. I feel capable of putting 100% of my efforts in to the things that I do for others and for myself. The power of this program still runs through my veins and fuels my soul to this day! As is evident in that I'm finally continuing on with my Jewish education at Neve Yerushalyim today. Thanks Beis Chana!

Nothing. I really enjoyed the entire thing. It ran smoothly and I felt that people were there to answer my questions whenever I asked.

Beis Chana blasted me into a whole new stage of life. For a week I got nothing but star treatment in a gorgeous resort. The many classes on almost every Jewish topic were super informative. Sometimes I came out with a brighter soul, other times I came out confused. But that was the beauty of Beis Chana. In the end, everyone came out a bigger and better person. I remember after a class on the soul I left feeling light as a feather and knew that I would continue my journey in to Judaism forever. I felt as if the Rabbi giving the lecture had picked that class just for me because he knew of my struggles right at that moment in life. I also made friends who I still talk to today, over a year and a half afterwards. I'm from Seattle and I just got back this weekend from my counselor's wedding in New York! Of course it takes a lot of work to remain friends, but it was so easy to make friends on the program because of the friendly and open environment on the program. All of the girls (and I mean all) were friends on that trip. I remember after a long day of classes and snorkeling, me and a bunch of girls stayed up at night on the roof of our condo, looking at the stars and reflecting on our week so far. Some of the girls I hadn't even met before then, yet we were discussing Judaism as if we'd been friends our whole lives. No guards were up, just real talk. All in all Beis Chana's Snorkel and Study was a week of meeting cool new people, snorkeling, and pure adventure into the soul.

The Great!

I am no longer afraid to seek out a Jewish education. Once I went on this program I realized that it is okay to be a grown Jewish woman who doesn't know the basics of Judaism, and that it is okay to seek out that knowledge.
