From our President

Dorrie Kahn


This is an exciting time for Hadassah, for Florida Broward Hadassah and myself!

 The National Convention in Atlanta, GA, July 25 to July 28 is especially meaningful with our own Merna Shapiro, Florida Broward Past President, being the National Hadassah Co-Chair of the convention! The president of our Coral Springs/Parkland chapter, Cheryl Cotler, is the Florida Broward Convention Chair and will be organizing the Broward delegates. Our plenaries, thought-provoking workshops and keynote speakers will be inspirational,
educational, and entertaining:

  • Powerful personal stories about Hadassah's medical breakthroughs
  • Strong women in focus: changing the Knesset, in the Bible, young women's leadership, and more.
  • Emerging trends in the Jewish world and US-Israel relations
  • What's ahead for the Coalition for Women's Health Equity, created this spring by Hadassah
  • A call to action: Stop human trafficking
  • How hi-tech and security intersect in Israel
  • Presentations honoring Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow with The Power of Our Dreams award and 2016 Henrietta Szold Awardee Malcolm Hoenlein, president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organization. 

Also, in the planning stages, is an extraordinary event that will honor ALL HADASSAH PRESIDENTS! Please save the date of November 13, 2016where past presidents, current presidents and newly elected presidents will receive special recognition! At this time we are looking for any Hadassah president, no matter where or when she served, so that she may be included in the festivities. Please let us know if you fall into any of these categories, or if you know someone who does. During this event, we will also be installing our Florida Broward 2017 Executive Board.

 Now I have very exciting news to announce! Adina Tuchman, daughter of Gila and Danny Tuchman, has won the National Hadassah LEADERS of TOMORROW AWARD for YOUNG WOMEN! This highly selective, merit-based competition award was won by only two teens in all the United States. Adina, 17, a junior in Western High School, Davie, Florida, has been actively involved in Young Judaea for many years, as had her parents when they were young. Adina was instrumental in bringing year round Young Judaea activities back to South Florida. Adina is a student leader, currently involved in her high school student government, the National Honor Society and Best Buddies, and consistently maintains an honor roll grade point average while taking several AP courses. Adina has learned to be an effective advocate, taking part in education programs about domestic violence.

 Adina remarked, "My Jewish identity holds a strong importance in my life and being given this opportunity would shape that identity that I desire to expand."  I know you all join me in congratulating Adina and her family for this wonderful achievement!

 On a personal note, I am very proud of my oldest grandchild who just graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont.  I am equally proud of my Israeli grandson who will become a Bar Mitzvah in July. That celebration will last a whole week, including a visit to Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem!

 Hope to see many of you at Convention in Atlanta and wish you all a very healthy and happy summer!
