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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have just returned from Bais Chana Teen Program and I am thoroughly impressed with its unique approach to empowerment by nurturing the key elements of the person. Although there is a structured program each girl is treated sensitively, as an individual. Significantly, the entire staff, under the wise, warm, and capable direction of Mrs. Hinda Leah Scharfstein, is hand-picked---each counselor contributes her special talents, skills, and ability to relate to the girls. There is a refreshing, non-judgmental atmosphere of genuine caring. Rabbi Manis Friedman teaches daily Torah classes which reach beyond the intellect and vitalize the core of the Jewish feminine soul. His nightly question and answer sessions, full of wit, wisdom, humor and personal stories address much that churns and burns in the hearts and minds of the girls. Mr. Yaakov Yitchak Rosenthal, a talented, caring handwriting analyst, physiognomist and life coach who concentrates on the social-emotional issues of teenagers, meets with each girl to point out areas of strengths and challenges in a positive, constructive, encouraging way. Rounding out the program is the art room, directed by Mrs. Aharah Aisman, which provides plenty of opportunity for self-expression, creativity and growth. Bais Chana masterfully nurtures the inner dimensions of the Jewish teenage girl, planting seeds of who she can become.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a student in the summer of 1975...definitely a huge contribution to becoming the strongly identified Jewish wife, mother, grandmother I am today!
