You won’t find this hot spot on an ordinary map! But this vacation destination has more to offer than palm trees, sun and sand.

What is Yeshivacation?

Yeshivacation is  bi-annual program offered in summer and winter. Whether you are a college student, professional or homemaker, ten days during winter or six weeks of  summer  in Crown Heights at YeshivaCation, will provide you with answers to your deepest questions, a comprehensive course in Torah concepts  and an incredible opportunity to spend quality time in a women’s Yeshiva together with other women, who share your desire and thirst for spiritual growth and academic pursuit.
Each day of Yeshivacation features a new topic of interest to the modern, intellectual woman. The daily theme is explored in depth, through the Jewish history, halacha and Chasidic philosophy. Explored topics range from theory and ideology to specifics of Jewish observance and serves as a comprehensive introduction or expansion of preexisting knowledge.
Fascinating classes, lectures, and hand-on-workshops will give the beginner to the advanced learner new insights into their Jewish roots and a profound awakening and  of their spiritual side.



Machon Chana is located in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. A brief train ride away from the bustling business and shopping districts of Manhattan, Crown Heights, headquarters of the international Chabad Chassidic community, is also called “ a small town in the big city”.  Permeated with Chassidic warmth and the feel of “community” you’ll see people greet each other warmly in the street and shopkeepers on charming Kingston Avenue extend credit to people they know by face.
