From our President

Barbara Raben

Rosh Hashanah Message:

I’m sure you all are busy getting ready for the holidays. I love this time of year. Seeing the round challahs, smelling the honey, and just being with friends and family in the synagogue, reminds me of the Jewish history of my family, and how important it is to me. I hope you all feel the same way.

As Hadassah women, we should all take a moment during the holidays to appreciate what Hadassah has brought to our lives. The friends we all have made through Hadassah are so special. They are the bonus of Hadassah. We do extraordinary work for Israel and for the Hospital, but what we get in return is satisfaction for a job well done, and friends that will last a lifetime. Personally, I feel so blessed to have you all in my life. I am so appreciative of all the hard work you do on behalf of Hadassah.
