Hadassah Northeast Calendar
From our President
Dear Hadassah friends:
“The Power of Our Dreams” was the theme of Hadassah’s 98th National Convention that convened in Atlanta in July. More than 900 Hadassah members were engaged, inspired and educated about the scope of Hadassah projects, Hadassah Medical Organization research breakthroughs and domestic priorities. An inspirational roster of speakers, best-selling authors, world-renowned medical experts, charismatic political leaders and passionate political activists showcased Hadassah as a vibrant, thriving organization, a leader in national conversations and programs on health, medicine, Zionism, Israel, and advocacy for women’s issues. It was an honor to represent Boston at Convention.
Locally, we strive to generate the same sense of purpose and commitment to our core principals of supporting Israel, health care and equality for women in the medical sphere and in the work place. We embrace the priorities outlined by National Hadassah; strengthening ties between Israel and the United States, support medical care and research at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem, and empower Jewish women to effect change.
We began the New Year with opportunities to connect with other dynamic women for a Yoga class and an opportunity to shop for beautiful Athleta activewear, while raising funds for Hadassah and participating in a healthy activity.
Our grand opening program featured guest speaker Dr. Rachel Schonberger, National HMO chair. A full house of attendees heard Rachel describe the breakthrough medical research taking place at our hospital in Jerusalem. This research affects all of us as scientists strive to eradicate the many diseases that are effecting loved ones, members of our families and community.
There are many opportunities to become engaged in Hadassah Boston. We encourage you to share your passions, be they advocating for women’s rights or advocating for Israel, planning an evening with friends to discuss a current parenting issue or gathering to meet with an author to discuss his/ her new book. We are the women who do—we plan interesting events that are entertaining, educational and social. And all of our programs support Hadassah. Take a look at what is coming up this season, and know that your input is always welcome.
Thank you for all the ways you help Hadassah Boston succeed. Together we continue to make dreams come true. Hadassah welcomes all women who wish to heal some of the world’s ills and be part of a community of women who do.
As the New Year begins with hopes and dreams anew, I wish you and your family a wonderful year ahead.
