I went the summer of 2016 and it wa she best summer I've ever had. I had an amazing time and learned so much! I grew so much spiritually and as a person as a result of Bais Chana UnCamp
A place that cares and nurtures every person that comes its way- there are not many places that are do dedicated and devoted to making people lives more meaningful as bais chana. There is inspiration everywhere you go within the bais chana organisation
Beis Chana is a Warm, awesome environment for women to grow, learn and connect with other Jewish women.
5 STARS for "Bais CHANA WI"
B"H, Last Year, I had the Opportunity to attend a "Retreat" .....
This year, it has not been possible to attend but once again thanks to a marvellous "Sunday Tanya Group" we have kept in contact....B"H may there be many more "Retreats" and classes....Thank you for great orginization skills and dedication....
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
I have never experienced anything like this program before. They give one-on-one attention. The people working in this organization are always energetic, kind, and constantly have a lot of each student grow. The people running this program give up all their time and energy to make sure everything is perfect. I went there this summer expecting nothing much, and came out in awe! Not only was it a fun and beautiful experience, but I left a different person I came. It was something I would mention and reccomend to all my friends from then on. I grew. Learned. Experienced. There is no other organization like it.
This is the most amazing program I have ever attended. The atmosphere the staff creates is so unique and comfortable that friends are made quickly. The experience I had when I went was life changing. I have attended more than one program and each time I walk away with an unforgettable experience and at the end you see the difference in each person who left. Your views on life change and there's a new understanding of the world and all of leave with new friends. Bais Chana deserves the recognition, they work hard and truly make a difference in peoples lives. I know from experience because they changed mine.
In today's fast paced individual oriented society many are searching for meaning and community. Bais Chanah provides a safe nurturing environment for womento find cameraderie, purpose and anchors in an increasingly confusing world and to explore deep philosophical questions about the complexities of life. I have seen many women from all walks of life and diverse persuasions, find direction and guidance in a non threatening and emotionally supportive environment.
