Jewish Study Retreats: For Women of All Ages
If you want to take time off to focus on what's really important to you -
If you're brave enough to take a good hard look at everything you hold near and dear - love, family, G-d, purpose, friendship, work -
Carve out some time in your crazy schedule for Bais Chana, where you can plug into Jewish wisdom, free of dogma and fluff. Meet and connect with Jewish women of all ages and from across the Jewish spectrum. Have an inter-generational experience that's fun and eye-opening.
Think part summer camp for adults, part spiritual journey.
You'll hear Chassidic teachings on love and fear, loyalty and self-discipline, womanhood, faith, healing, kindness - fundamental ideas you really can't live without. Outdoor painting, late-night farbrengens (ask us) and prayer that's actually meaningful. Delicious healthy kosher food, challah baking and Shabbat.
The days are full but you take it all at your own pace.
Turn your world right-side up and go home with a plan of action to add happiness and meaning to the everyday.

She Said/She Said
Like a compass, Bais Chana points you in the right direction.
I’ve been in women’s only environments but this was different. We’re connected on a much deeper level here – it’s not something I can really explain. It’s a soul thing.
from Santa Fe
The most important thing I learned? G-d is with us always, no matter what.
Loved hearing the other women’s stories – that was as important as what I learned, which was HUGE. The whole thing was larger than life, and so much fun.
from New Hope
There really are no words to describe what I feel about my stay in Bais Chana. I loved it then, but as time goes on, and I'm remembering the atmosphere, the lectures, the growth mindset, I appreciate it even more.
from New York City
Bais Chana is where I go to get a mature education about Judaism.
