Bais Chana's history and tradition of excellence
Bais Chana has been at the forefront of Jewish women’s education since its founding in 1971.
Inspired by the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his avid support of education for all Jewish women, Rabbi Moshe Feller, 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 then, many thousands have passed through our doors from nearly every country in the world to attend our extraordinary educational retreats all over the US.
Today as then, Bais Chana is a warm, non-judgmental second home that wins the hearts and minds of teenage girls, stay-at-home moms and career women, students and grandmothers. The deep friendships made at Bais Chana bring the inspiration back home.
