Bais Chana meets the needs of women in California and around the world. We are dedicated to Jewish life: physical and spiritual. Bais Chana teaches women and connects women to collaborate and promote the value and sanctity of Jewish life. In addition Bais Chana provides proactive support to women making ongoing and life changing decisions.
The Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, under whose auspices Bais Chana operates and for whose mother, Rebbetzin Chana, the Yeshiva was named, gave many blessings to Bais Chana. The first blessing Bais Chana received:
B"H, 24th of Tammuz, 5760 (July 1990)
The news of Bais Chana of California Women's Yeshiva's (first) program was gratefully received and should be a continued endeavor and with an increase. The time is auspicious and the Rabbis give strength with their blessing that "all who add are added to." Special strength and additional measure is given by the blessing of the Holy One Blessed Be He. And the time is auspicious as the Torah determines that these days "will be for rejoicing and happiness and good holidays, as brought in the end of Tosefta Taanit and in the Rambam on it. I will mention this at the Tziyun.
"Through the 'quieting the mind' meditation with Yehudit Eichenblatt I came to a whole new goal in life! I feel the emotional energy I need to pursue this goal in an authentic way that will be true to my essence." Michal, Los Angeles
"I have been taking 'Bais Chana classes for a year, and everything in my life has changed. I used to be all over the place in the corporate world and now I put my focus and priorities on my family. I am learning how to live a I Jewish life. I light Shabbos candles and make Shabbat dinners among other things. I realize that my family is really what is most important in life. I feel like I came home." - Abigail Goldberg, Beverly Hills
“When I learn Chassidus from one of Bais Chana's teachers, I feel like I am in the presence of holiness that is coming out of the pores of the teacher. We are blessed to have several women of this caliber here in Los Angeles. For the duration of being in her class, I am uplifted to a sphere that may be hard to access once I leave the class. Having been there, I know that it exists and that the 'fountain' of this great learning is there for more 'drinking' when I have another opportunity to learn. I am very grateful for Bais Chana.” - M.F., Los Angeles
