Bais Chana and the people and program has totally changed my life. I have made new friends, and got a great "shot in the arm" in my Judaic practice and understanding. If there were 10 stars, I'd want to give 11!! The contribution to Judaic society that Bais Chana gives is worth more than can ever be conceived or understood.

If you're a Jewish woman, what are you waiting for?! I literally cannot recommend Bais Chana highly enough. No judgement, no dogma, no fluff, just the most important wisdom no woman should be living without.

When asked to describe my experiences with Bais Chana, it is always difficult for me articulate. I simply say, "It is a magical place."
The accepting, non judgmental environment facilitates new lifetime friendships. The classes with open forums allows one to take an honest look at life and choices, and create new possibilities. Authenticity, connection and introspection is experienced and transformation takes place.
Bais Chana International is a unique gift to Jewish women worldwide.

Bais Chana was one of the best experiences of my life. It was a warm environment where girls and women of all ages were able to find something in common. After only a few days at bais Chana I felt as if I'd known the women there my whole life, and I still Lee in touch with many of them. Every one of the classes was incredible, and it was always a number one priority for me to get to all of them no matter how late I'd been up the night before.

I went to the Bais chana uncamp in Iowa this summer, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was an amazingly kind, nurturing environment, and the staff was absolutely wonderful. The classes and activities were inspiring and fun, and the relaxed atmosphere made everybody feel comfortable asking any questions. (Side point, the grounds were stunning)Thank-you, bais chana, for a great summer!

I have never gone to any retreates nor was I ever affiliated with lev Chana or any chabbad organizations. I am forever thankful and blessed I was able to join this lev Chana retreat in lakearrowhead it was the best thing I have done for myself in a long long time. I felt so empowered spending a weekend with strong, capable, beautiful single moms. Thank you to everyone involved who made this happen I can't thank you enough.

This retreat helped me to regroup and refocus my mind and energy on Hashem because He is the one who truly runs the world. I went two time and it was absolutely wonderful. The women that I met and bonded with are amazing!!! The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is superb!!! The rooms are glorious!!! The speakers are amazing and insightful. I would definitely recommend this experience to any single mom out there. May they continue to help anyone that needs.

The best non profit for women around. I went to Bais Chana for the first time last summer and it was the best decision I made. I walked in one person and left a week later totally transformed. The staff is incredible, the support and knowledge from everyone is unmeasurable. Whether you go to one of their many retreats they offer or you learn online remotely it all impacts the growth of Jewish women everywhere. Bais Chana does so much for so many women all around the world. Go Bais Chana!

Bais Chana is amazing. That means the people are exceptional, the teachers are profound, thought-provoking, and make themselves available for hours of personal time with anyone who wants one on one time with them. And the food is delicious and healthy!

Bais Chana is less a "camp" than a warm and inspiring community for Jewish women of all ages and affiliations. The people at Bais Chana are so consistently kind and giving that one feels one has entered a different universe. Although some of the Chabad philosophy taught in the courses was difficult for me to swallow as a very modern Jew, on the whole, Bais Chana provided a uniquely positive experience, and I look forward to returning.

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!!

I honestly did not know what I signed up for when I decided to go to the Bais Chana UnCamp. The 3 week program exceeded any exectations I could have possibly had. Not only did I have an amazing and fun time but I gained so much! The schedule is a perfect balance of learning and engaging activities. The classes are so insightful and make you think like you've never thought before! The activities are so fun and really bring closer to your camp mates. I left this camp with 30 new sisters and a notebook full of new things that I leaned. I would recommend this camp to ALL Jewish high school girls. You will not regret coming here. In fact you will probably return to camp for more than one year as many campers do. I would not change a single thing in the UnCamp program and look forward to attending many more Bais Chana programs!!
