From our President
As Hadassah women, we advocated for the creation of the State of Israel and provided health care for its citizens even before its founding in 1948. Our efforts have continued for the past 100 years. With the Power of our Dreams, we will continue to strive for even greater accomplishments in Hadassah’s future.
CINCINNATI HADASSAH is playing her part and because of you and your support Hadassah’s future will continue. We should remember the past, but look to the future. This past year we honored Carol Ann Schwartz at our Donor Luncheon. Our annual giving members are: FOUNDERS ($36,000 or more), KEEPERS of the GATE ($1,000 or $1800 per year), CHAI SOCIETY ( $180 or $360 per year). We sell greeting cards, certificates, JNF trees, handbag holders for the table, Macy’s gift cards, Panera gift cards. Click on our Amazon.com link & we earn a percentage of the order at no cost to you. Another option is to register your Kroger and Remke cards online for Community Rewards and name Hadassah as the nonprofit recipient. That way Hadassah will receive a percenage of your grocery bill at no cost to you.
If you have not been involved before, here are just a few things we have fun doing here in Cincinnati: Book Discussion Group, Movie Mavens, Mah Jongg, Lunch Bunch, and monthly Coffee Talks. Please join us whenever you are able to. We would love to have you.
I want to wish everyone all the best,
Beverly G. Williams
Cincinnati Chapter President

May 24, 2017Varies
Please join us for our next movie and/or brunch on Wednesday, May 24 to see "Norman" at the Mariemont Theater at 1:20pm. Norman (Richard Gere), a New York fixer, knows the right people and can get things done. When an Israeli dignitary named Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi) comes to the city, Norman decides to impress the man by buying him some very expensive shoes. It works and he establishes a strong connection to the man, but a few years later, when Eshel becomes the Israel prime minister, Norman can't communicate with him anymore, and this threatens to destroy his reputation. We'll do brunch before the movie. Everyone is invited to lunch, movie, or both! RSVP to Edie Rau, 513-530-0003 or email@example.com.
