From our President

Beverly Gershuny Williams

Dear Friends,

As 5776 draws to a close and we welcome in the New Year, we pray for peace and health. We have gone through joy and sadness, celebration and mourning, opportunities and losses.  Our lives are a journey and a quest to find meaning and establish a lasting legacy.  In Judaism, we are commanded to make the world a better place, not for ourselves, but for future generations. 

We recently lost a senior statesman who worked tirelessly for Israel and its defense, Past President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres. He was a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and a father of the Oslo Accords.  As we mourn his passing, we honor his memory by supporting and defending the Jewish State he dedicated his life to building.
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.

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 a good Shabbos & Shana Tova,


Beverly G. Williams
Cincinnati Chapter President
