FAR Delegates Represent in Washington, D.C.
A delegation of six woment from the Florida Atlantic Region respresented Hadassah at the Women's Health and Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C., May 15-17, 2018.
FAR Day in the District with Congresswoman Lois Frankel
On Monday, May 14th, FAR facilitated a Day in the District with Congresswoman Lois Frankel. Ten representatives from different Chapters participated in the event.
Prior to our meeting, we viewed Advocacy slides that updated Senate legislation regarding Anti-Semitism and Holocaust education.
Our agenda included National Hadassah priorities: Women's Health, Israel, Anti-Semitism and BDS, and gun violence in schools. Lois Frankel enlightened us on her participation on sponsoring legislation dealing with Israel and the BDS movement. She is also co-sponsor of gun safety bills. Her opening words were: "You cannot be silent. We must push."
Lois believes in a two-state solution for Israel. She is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee that passed a bill alotting 3.3 million dollars for Israel.
Everyone at the meeting felt like they learned a lot from their discussion with the Congresswoman.

CASCADES ROSH HODESH EVENT - MARCH 2017
From our President
Dear Hadassah Sisters,
Thank God we are living in a country where the sky is the limit.
If we look long enough and hard enough, we will understand why we joined Hadassah. It requires much more than a personal experience. It requires a need to continue the Jewish tradition of Tzedakah Giving – Sharing – Teaching. As Hadassah women, it is the quality of our response that helps us make other lives better.
I had no intention of falling in love with Hadassah. I certainly didn’t expect to be affected so deeply. I knew I wanted to go somewhere. My party wasn’t over. I joined because I had nothing to lose. I give because we have everything to gain. My mind is always busy. Hadassah is a part of my day and my night thoughts. I have no doubt that Hadassah is a necessity to keep Israel alive.
If we are Zionist women, as we say we are, let us do something real and practical. Be proud of your support of Hadassah. The Women Who Do “Care”.
Shalom - Sheila
