Beit BINA (BINA House) in Dharamsala, India engages the thousands of young Israelis and other young Jews traveling through the region who have found exploration of their Jewish culture and Jewish identity a pivotal element of their journey in a foreign land. Beit BINA invites travelers to celebrate Jewish holidays and Shabbat together, attend study sessions (“Limmud”) and group discussions, partake in communal activities and familiar rituals – all in the spirit of BINA’s pluralistic, cultural, and social-values-based Judaism.
Beit BINA offers visitors a way of connecting with other travelers as well as the surrounding community and culture. The Houses and House-representatives facilitate encounters with local leaders and social action initiatives. All of these opportunities respect the practices of the place and the needs of the local community. They also support the interests of the travelers, as well as cultivating the values of pluralism, cross-cultural exchange, and social justice on which BINA prides itself.
