Inspired by the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his avid support of education for all Jewish women, Rabbi Moshe Feller, Mrs. Mindy Feller, and Rabbi Manis Friedman opened the doors of Bais Chana in its first home in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, as a place where women with little or no formal Jewish education could rediscover their heritage.
Thirsty for knowledge and sense of community, women came and Bais Chana’s popularity quickly grew. Since that time, many thousands have passed through our doors from nearly every country in the world to attend our extraordinary educational retreats all over the US.
Since 1991 Bais Chana has been diversifying its programs to include shorter retreat segments and daily rates that make it simple to schedule a brief getaway or a month-long immersion.
They offer generous scholarship opportunities for college students and teenage girls, accommodations for women attending with children, a choice of three sessions annually especially for teens, a winter break adventure for college women, learning retreats for couples, and an array of venues and attractions across the country that make it easy to combine that cherished vacation break with Jewish enrichment.
In the past 10 years Bais Chana has been in nearly three dozen cities, making the experience more available than ever to Jewish girls and women who may never have considered attending because of the cost or inconvenience of travel.
4 friends of Beis Chana —Lillian Tabacinic, Evelyn Katz, Barbara Hines and Chanah Devorah bas Sara— have joined to launch a matching grants campaign in support of this institution that has been for the forefront of Jewish women’s education since 1971.
For the next 24 hours only, every single dollar donated in this campaign will be matched by these 4 women to reach the goal of $180,000 in scholarships for some 180 girls and women.
Here’s how the campaign works: The campaign is all or nothing. Bais Chana must raise the full amount so that every dollar donated will be quadrupled.
