From our President
A recent study published in The Lancet found that people with a high sense of purpose benefit from improved health and extended lives. Researchers discovered that participating in projects that matter, whether it is helping a cause you care about or interacting in a community of like-minded people, is correlated with seven extra years of life.
I wasn't surprised to read this, because at Hadassah, we have long known that getting together, learning, advocating and socializing is good for us. We already knew about Hadassah's role in improving the health of patients at Hadassah Hospital - now we know Hadassah also benefits the long-term health of our members.
On Sunday March 19, 50 Hadassah members, associates and friends came together to learn from Middle East expert Dr. Eric Trager about the rise and fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and how this impacts Israel. Dr. Trager, a scholar at the Washington Institute of Near East Policy, shared his expertise and answered questions in an engaging and informative presentation. The thoughtful presentation, hospitality of our wonderful Hadassah host and a delicious brunch inspired us to support Hadassah.
