Bnot Chaya Academy
Bnot Chaya Academy is a unique high school serving the daughters of our community who have been beset with unthinkable difficulties, so early in their young, promising lives.
The girls that come to BCA have been left behind by the majority of the community—by those unaware or insensitive to their struggles. They have been shunned from neighborhood, schools and sometimes even rejected by their own families.
Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein
While others throw their hands up in defeat, too overwhelmed by the enormity of the problem, Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein refused to turn his back on our daughters. He believed that with the right combination of unconditional love, therapeutic support and a stellar academic program, these girls could have a second chance on life, and become thriving, healthy Bnos Yisrael. He assembled a talented and dedicated team of educators and therapists, and created an outstanding school that successfully addresses the serious issues many teenage girls are struggling with.
It became the place for the girl with no place.
