Hadassah

Support for Paris

Sunday, Nov 15 2015

Once again, terror has shattered a nation and shocked the world. We stand with the people of France and weep for the Parisians and other victims struck by this tragedy. We hold our colleagues and friends at Hadassah France in our thoughts.

From the hospital where he is tending to the wounded, cardiologist Prof. Emmanuel Messas, President of Hadassah France, said, “We are all shocked and horrified by what happened this past Friday night in Paris. We have to be unified and strong in France, in the Jewish community and in the world. Now more than ever we need a strong Israel. I take this opportunity to warmly thank Hadassah for their support. We will continue to work together to support Hadassah Medical Organization which symbolizes a place of humanity and excellence, working for a better world.”

These attacks are an assault on all of humanity and the universal value of freedom that we share. We must never stop working towards a world of tolerance and understanding. All of our members and supporters in the US, Israel and throughout the world, join me in praying for a world at peace.

Marcie Natan
Hadassah National President
