From our President


The Hebrew word ‘Or’ as a noun means “light” and as a verb, it means to “give light” or “shine.”  There is no better word to describe the women of Hadassah Chicago-North Shore (CNS) and their contributions to our community and Israel.

Our members choose Hadassah because they want to make a difference. They shine by supporting the life-saving medical research, technology and care provided at Hadassah’s hospitals and recognized around the world. New light is cast on immigrant and indigent youth in Israel by our members’ work to bring education, housing and support to those in need. And children here at home are able to engage in the light of their spirits through Camp Young Judaea Midwest and their many programs and opportunities for youth and young adults.

Hadassah women empower others to become leaders and to take action which leads to better lives and healing for those in need. Throughout each year, our leaders come together in programs and training to hone their skills and strengthen their groups and CNS. We are women who Do.

Hadassah is a home for all of us; it’s where we can grow as leaders and become agents of repairing the world. Because of you, we will continue spreading the light of hope and healing, Or.
