I participated in the summer camp and although it was fun and I made friends, I don’t feel like it changed me that much. I did learn new things but I was also expecting to come back home as a new and improved person as I had heard from others. This is a good program for those who are just beginning their Jewish journey or are looking for all the answers to their questions.

I joined Bais Chana as a volunteer for the teens, and womans sessions and was, to say the least, blown away! The atmosphere is incredibly positive and warm. The classes, deep and yet entertaining, so much so that they could go on for hours without anyone noticing. I love Bais Chana for the fact that it is an escape from a world of turmoil and a place of spiritual growth for all those passing through it's doors.

Spending a few summers at Beis Chana gave me the privilege of meeting women from all walks of life. With knowledgeable scholors and admirable women to learn from, we discovered the gifts of Judaism and how it applies to our everyday lives. It was a great vacation for both body and soul! We explored art, nature, and spent time relaxing on the beautiful grounds outdoors. I'll always have great memories!

As someone who has gone to many Bais chana retreats, I can personally attest to the fact that this organization changes the lives of every girl and woman who attends. The staff are incredible, caring, and knowledgeable people who take personal interest in each individual from before they walk through the doors until long after they leave, creating lifelong connections. Bais Chana is the best.

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 is a warm place to come.... when you want to learn, grow, be inspired...and eat well:) With many types of women from many different places, everyone is encouraged on their own journey. In the year that I worked at Bais Chana, I got to see many women and teens make changes and gather the strength to implement those changes back home. Relationships for a lifetime, inspiration for a lifetime, Changes of a lifetime.

Learning in Bais Chana was a wholesome experience for me. It was everything together, the beautiful physical location, deep thought provoking lectures, great food, and meaningful discussions that made it a wonderful place to be.
Discussions and lectures ranged all topics from morality and the purpose of life to mortal man and the finality of death.
I feel like the Bais Chana experience allowed me to walk away a more thoughtful mindful and possibly moral human being.

With the possibility of running on a much larger scale Bais Chana's positive impact can reach that much further and enrich many more.
