Dear Hadassah Sisters,
It may feel like the middle of summer, but the new year will be here before we know it. As our hearts turn towards Rosh Hashanah and the autumn holidays, we’re drawn to the promise of new opportunities and fresh starts. From American advocacy to healing in Jerusalem and in our own bodies, now is the time to commit to the changes necessary to bring about the world we need.
Raising Up Our Voices - As the High Holiday services demonstrate, we need to gather inspiration from our pasts to propel us forward. We’re still flying high after From Passion to Action Hadassah Women's Health & Advocacy Conference held in May during National Women's Health Week. It energized hundreds of attendees around Hadassah's efforts to advance support for Israel, health and women's health equity. We were a force with 250 Hadassah members and Associates from 25 states who visited more than 80 congressional offices during our recent Day on the Hill in Washington DC, securing support for key legislation on women's health equity, Holocaust education, gun safety and more. We carry this passion into the new year and commit together to more action.
Vote - With advocacy in mind, we should each commit to vote in the upcoming elections. No matter where we stand, we must each stand up in our democratic process. And just as we gather with our families and loved ones to start the new year, we should text or call our daughters and granddaughters to remind them to vote as well. Florida’s primary was on August 28th, but the final election day is Tuesday, November 6th.
HMO - Hadassah is the founder of Israel’s modern health-care system and has been tireless in maintaining the highest standards for more than 100 years. The Full Circle Campaign to reimagine and renovate the iconic Round Building will significantly advance the services in its outpatient surgery, maternity, oncology, and dermatology departments. To complete the renovation and expansion of the Round Building—so vital to health care in Israel and worldwide—Hadassah needs to raise $91.2 million by 2021. You can learn more and give your support at www.hadassah.org/360degrees.
Feeding Our Bodies, Along with Our Souls - The High Holidays are a time of resolutions – who among us hasn’t resolved to eat more healthy food? Hadassah has also rolled out many new health-focused programs, including topics like Alzheimer’s, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetes. Learn more at www.hadassah.org/research.
Whether we’re uniting in America or Israel, it’s always a good time to bring in women who are new to Hadassah. Do you have a friend, neighbor, or relative who would be interested in what’s happening in our community? Who’s that sitting near you in shul? Share your magazine. Bring her to the next event. Let’s make her feel welcome.
