March 26, 2019 - NEW YORK, NY – Judy Ron has been named Managing Director, Hadassah Mid-Atlantic Consolidated Area, according to Janice Weinman, Executive Director and CEO of Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. (HWZOA).

Ron enthuses, “Hadassah is in my blood, in my DNA and I am thrilled to now play a leadership role in galvanizing the Hadassah sisterhood.  Holding dual citizenship in both Israel and the U.S, I have had the privilege of witnessing first-hand the important role which HWZOA and the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) play for all the residents of Israel.  Hadassah’s two world-class research hospitals in Jerusalem offer medicine as a ‘bridge to peace’ for Jews, Arabs and Christians alike.  I look forward to working with the leadership in each of these regions to engage, inspire and motivate our membership.”
