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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was lucky enough to have been both a counselor and participant in the Bais Chana program. Bais Chana is truly a unique organization. With respect to the camp, the counselors are hand picked by the camp's wonderful and caring director, for unique talents and personalities. The students that come are from all different backgrounds which made for a really interesting summer. The main teacher, Rabbi Friedman, is one of the most caring, intelligent and empathetic Rabbis I know. He would discuss difficult subjects in the classroom which forced such as love and intimacy and force you to stop and think. He would ask questions to the group just see the reaction of the students . I've seen him and the organization change people's lives. In addition to giving one on one counseling to any student who requested it, he also spoke to any of the counselors one on one, about anything. He has such a vast knowledge of different subjects, that one could ask him pretty much anything and he would give his opinion in a kind manner. The summer I worked with him and the entire staff changed. I recommend anyone who is searching, orthodox or not, to spend one day or a couple at Bais Chana.
