The formation of Machon Chana in 1972 was inspired by the teachings of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
The Rebbe envisions Jewish women as the fundamental, dynamic factor ensuring the continuity of the Jewish people and impacting the world at large.
With great privilege, Machon Chana carries the name of the Rebbe's mother, Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson, obm.
The atmosphere at Machon Chana is distinctly warm and supportive.
Machon Chana's highly qualified and professional faculty and staff all share a primary dedication to Jewish education with a sensitivity to the needs of the individual student.
The first and foremost institution of its kind, Machon Chana Jewish Women's Institute offers Torah study to the growing numbers of women who are exploring their Jewish heritage as adults.
