2. University Hospital

3. Bone Marrow Clinic

4. Children’s Hospice

5. Cancer Institute

6 Center for Cystic Fibrosis

7. Liver Unit

8. Skin Bank

9. Trauma Unit

10. Organ Transplant Unit

11. Embryonic Stem Cell Research Center

This all started with one woman, Henrietta Szold, whose trip to pre-state Israel with her mother changed her view of the world. She saw Jews living in camps without proper plumbing or sanitation. Horrified by the impact starvation and disease had on her people, she took action. Returning to America, Henrietta founded Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America in 1912. Henrietta called for practical Zionism, proactive work to help meet the health needs of Palestine's people.

The new organization's first act was to collect money and send two nurses to Palestine in 1913 to provide pasteurized milk to infants and new mothers, and to eradicate trachoma, an easily cured eye disease, that was robbing thousands of sight. From that beginning, Hadassah Medical Organization flourished over the next century into two world-class medical and research centers in Jerusalem. By 1918, Hadassah had sent an entire medical unit, composed of 45 doctors, nurses, dentists and sanitary workers, to bring American-style medical care to the Middle East. From these early efforts developed the beginning of the Israeli healthcare system, which today includes some of the world's leading research and treatment hospitals,and schools of medicine and nursing.

At the dawn of the Holocaust in Europe, in the 1930s, Henrietta Szold and a German colleague organized the rescue of thousands of Jewish children to safety in Palestine through Youth Aliyah. She met every boat as it arrived. Hadassah still supports Youth Aliyah villages for at-risk children in Israel.

Today, with 330,000 members, Associates and supporters, Hadassah remains committed to Jewish continuity and building a better world through medicine and healthcare, advocacy, and communities of women. In 2012 Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, celebrated its centennial in Israel.

I am asking each and every one of you to show your continued support of Hadassah by becoming an ANNUAL GIVER. You will be helping to create a healthier, more hopeful world!

Dorrie
