STOP Terrorist Organizations from using Human Shields

For too long, Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations have put civilians in harm’s way, violating international laws of armed conflict, and using the very people they vow to protect as human shields. Urge your legislator to cosponsor and support the STOP Using Human Shields Act today.

Act for Women’s Equality Day!

All month long Hadassah is asking you to join us in celebrating the Power of Women Who DO by making your voice heard! In 1971, Congresswoman—and Hadassah Member—Bella Abzug championed the creation of a Women's Equality Day to commemorate the institution of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920.  Visit the National Action Center and make your voice heard in support of women’s equality in health and the workplace. 

Your Actions Matter

Congratulations, advocates! Your hard work paid off. Last week, the president signed the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act into law. This bill includes over $500 million in US-Israel defense cooperation, $50 million for counter-tunnel technology, cooperation on precision-guided weapons and more. Your letters and calls help to let our legislators know that we stand for a strong US-Israel relationship that takes the safety and security of Israel’s citizens very seriously.
