Program Description

The Machon Bina program is designed around the students – providing an environment where each can further develop her unique self and strengthen her identity and commitment to a life guided by Torah and Chasidus. It is the details and the nuances of the Machon Bina program that fosters this growth - classroom learning (discussions, text based, small group learning and other modalities of adult learning) and hands-on/ minds-on projects. Through this blend of learning and projects, the girls will gain deep and meaningful insights into life as Chabad women and hone their strengths and learn new skills for living a full and purposeful life. The Machon Bina program will help them develop the mindsets and tools for life – as a woman, wife, mother, and Shlucha, or wherever life takes them.
