What Does Women's Health Mean to You?
As Congress starts debating specific changes to the Affordable Care Act, we need your help to safeguard women's health coverage. Insist that any new health reform measures include key women's health provisions, including maternity coverage, preventive health and avoiding gaps in care. Your personal messages can help change minds and save lives. Spread the word, too.

Advocacy from Coast to Coast
So far this month, Hadassah advocates met with district staff for Senator Marco Rubio in Florida and Congresswoman Mimi Walters in California to promote a strong US-Israel relationship and gender equity in medicine.

Next Steps for Combating Anti-Semitism
Last week all 100 Senators co-signed a letter to the Attorney General, Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of the FBI urging coordinated action on combating anti-Semitism. "We can never be complacent, nor can we expect America to fulfill its potential, without constant vigilance," wrote Hadassah President Ellen Hershkin in her recent op-ed, "Battling hate in the spirit of Queen Esther," which ran in JTA, the Times of Israel, the Forward and several local papers.
It's time to act! Thank your elected officials for speaking out and urge Congress and the Administration to take further steps to address hate crimes and rising anti-Semitism — at home and abroad.
