Really educational and uplifting. Gave me a better sense of what being a Jewish young women is.
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.
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.
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.
I had an incredible experience with Bais Chana. The teachers were knowledgeable and caring, and even when dealing with difficult life issues, were really there for me.
I had a very good experience with this organization. They were very professional and personable and available anytime I had any questions or needed any assistance. I would recommend it to every women interested!
Bais Chana is an unbelievable organization. It allows Jewish women from all over the world to come together for a common cause, explore their personal lives, and learn about our heritage, culture, past, and present. By examining Judaism in depth with world renowned leaders. I was able to explore my personal life with the help of multiple counselors and leaders. They allowed me to be very open, think about all the positives, and ways to change what I wanted to. I have never felt more at home.
One week at Bais Chana was a positive, beautiful, full of inspiration, fun, joyful, life changing experience. It's a week of knowledge that makes you wish you could never leave, this one week trip can not be found anywhere else.
Bais Chana changed my relationship to Torah and my identity as a Jewish woman forever. The teachers, staff, people and place are all 5 stars. All together it is so beyond any kind of star system.
Bais Chana is an incredible organization. Everything about it is centered around helping women and girls feel empowered in all aspects of their lives. It is a warm and caring environment where everyone truly feels like part of a hugely diverse and unique family.
Bais Chana is an amazing place where you can learn and find out anything you ever wanted to find out and gives you the tools to view and live life in its full potential!!
Going to Bais Chana was an amazing experience for me, I had the opportunity to learn more about judaism among a group of very talented people and after I left I felt I had a new kind of energy within my self.
The women I met were always willing to have interesting and challenging conversations, their spirit is nothing like I have ever seen before and I would love to have the chance to go back again to this beautiful place.
