Review for Bais Chana Women International Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Attending Bais Chana 30 years ago was a transformative experience that altered my life in a totally positive way. It was stimulating, thought-provoking and provided me with a new paradigm in which to look at my life. Rabbi Manis Friedman told the truth without flinching or glossing it over. He held classes twice daily in which his students were literally mesmerized by his charismatic personality and depth of wisdom. Coming as a professionally-trained psychotherapist, I was amazed to discover that Rabbi Friedman knew more about the human personality and psyche than my most gifted instructors in graduate school. In addition, he held private audiences with his students. During my two sessions with him he was able to take apart and put my life back together again with uncanny skill. I will forever be grateful to Bais Chana for this. My peers were other young women who had the courage to challenge themselves and to embrace a set of spiritual teachings that provided new insights. The young women who served as counselors always found the time to help us each, one on one, to learn new tools and resources. Many of my best friends and my three daughters have all had the opportunity to benefit from this extraordinary learning experience.
