From our President
Dear Hadassah Friends,
Can it possibly be September already? It has been my privilege to be your president for this year and the time has flown by. It would be difficult for me to count the number of times I have proudly represented all of you at board meetings, at chapter and Desert-Mountain Region events, at the July National Convention and at various community programs. I have always done so with great pride because Hadassah women around the world can always be counted upon to take action where and when it’s needed. Read about this amazing project at HMO:
A collaboration initiated by Hadassah Medical Center with Palestinian and German colleagues, dedicated to the discovery and characterization of congenital diseases of the immune system, has led to the discovery of a new genetic mutation, a new disease, and the first successful transplantation in the world to cure an ill child. Through this collaboration, “over 70 children have been diagnosed with specific immunodeficiency diseases and about 40 have received successful bone marrow transplants at Hadassah,” says Dr. Polina Stepensky, head of the Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplantation Center in the Department of Pediatric Hemo-Oncology. Dr. Stepensky initiated the collaboration together with Dr. Prof Klaus Warnatz of the University of Freiburg and Dr. Omar Abu Zaitoun of Nablus. Over one hundred doctors, nurses, transplant coordinators, and technicians from hospitals all over Israel, the Palestinian Authority (Ramallah, Hebron, Bethehem, Jericho, Jenin) and the University of Freiburg attended a conference on this collaboration. In addition, the collaboration published a paper in the hematology journal Blood which was chosen as one of the top ten research articles of the year by this prestigious publication. Eager to continue with this research journey, Dr. Stepensky notes: “This collaboration is an amazing example of opening new horizons in science and medicine, finding new friends and, together, identifying new genes and new genetic mutations, along with the mechanisms through which these genes malfunction—with the end result of curing many children.”
Since the High Holidays are “late” this year, (Rosh Hashana begins at sundown October 2), we have the month of September to welcome new members as they meet and mingle with our chapter on Thursday, September 29 at the home of Susan Greenwald. In addition to new members, we are looking forward to connecting with those members who we haven’t seen in a while. Get ready for the New Year; come out for desserts and socializing.
After the holidays, we hope you’ll save the date for our Annual Giving Event on Thursay evening, Oct. 27. We’ve planned a Ladies Night Out at the UpStairs Circus in the Landmark. Plan on joining us for food, cocktails (and other beverages) as we laugh, have fun and create a craft to keep or gift!
We hope our annual givers (Chai, Silver Chai, Patrons, Keepers and Founders) will continue their commitment of pledging their annual gift. If each of us encourage one woman to become an annual givier, we’ll be set for a great finish for 2016.
The Jewish month of Elul begins the eve of September 3. Elul is traditionally a time for personal reflection and spiritual preparation for the New Year. It offers a opportunity to examine what is holding us back from being who we really want to be. Listen to the shofar and reflect. If we use the period of Elul to take concrete steps towards becoming advocates for change, together we can make a difference! We are Hadassah, the power of Women who DO!
