2018 is a banner year at Hadassah as we mark four major milestones. Take advantage of one — or all — of these powerful opportunities to turn your passion into action with Hadassah — in the United States, Israel and online.

Join us as we mark the State of Israel's 70th anniversary, and recognize the powerful role Hadassah women played in making the dream of Israel a reality. At the same time, help us celebrate the impact Hadassah has had on Israel and throughout the world during the first hundred years of the Hadassah Medical Organization and the Hadassah School of Nursing, as we look at the ways Hadassah innovation today is shaping the future.

From our President

Barbara Katz

Dear Hadassah Sisters, Associates and Friends,

360 Degrees of Healing

The following is a true story.  I know.  I was there last May at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem.

11 Hadassah Region Presidents and one HMO psychiatrist walk into an elevator in the 1960s era Round Building.  15 seconds later they hear a loud bang and the elevator stops between floors.  The floor indicator over the door oscillates wildly.  It finally stops showing floor 18.  But there are only 8 floors in the round building.  Do they panic? No. But the doctor is clearly agitated.  He keeps saying “I have to get out of here; I have appointments.”

After 15 minutes in the stalled elevator they are rescued.  When the doors open they see Professor Yoram Weiss, the Medical Director of Hadassah Ein Kerem, standing there with a sheepish grin on his face.  “I promise” he says, “I didn’t do it on purpose.”

But seriously folks, that’s how I know first hand how badly the Round Building needs to be renovated.

The renovation of the Round Building is central to the continuation of providing state of the art medical care to the people of Jerusalem and to the Jerusalem Gateway Project, which is transforming the city into an entrepreneurial business center. Mayor Nir Barkat has stated that “this transformation has only just begun and sees the Hadassah Medical Organization as playing a vital role in taking Jerusalem to the next level – attracting new talent and revolutionizing modern health care”.

Hadassah has committed to try to raise $91,000,000 for the project which, along with a $27,000,000 contribution from the Israeli government, will fund:

·         the creation of 200 new beds

·         the renovation of 17 operating rooms

·         the construction of larger patient rooms to enhance patient privacy and reduce infection risk

·         the strengthening of building infrastructure to protect the hospital from earthquakes and conventional, biological or chemical attacks

·         the creation of a state-of-the-art Simulation Lab with numerous simulation teaching spaces to provide medical, nursing and IDF students with the opportunity for intensive hands-on clinical training

I hope that you will join me in contributing to the 360 Degrees of Healing Campaign and accept the opportunity to continue Hadassah’s gift to the people of Israel.

There are still volunteer opportunities, both large and small, on the Brooklyn Executive Board.  Please email me at bkatz@hadassh.org if you are interested in joining the Brooklyn Women Who Do.

I look forward to seeing you at our region and chapter events!

B'Shalom,
Barbara Katz
Hadassah Brooklyn President
