Tower Hospital Certificates
Wetsman Tower

Hadassah has built a 19-story hospital in Eln Karem, Jerusalem.   The Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower was dedicated on Hadassah’s 100th Anniversary, in October 2012.  You may send a Tower Certificate in honor of any occasion or in memory of a loss.   Please contact Rose Schoenfeld

From our President

It is hard to believe that January and February have already come and gone, and spring is in the air.

We had a wonderful speaker at the February general meeting. Ben Abramowitz told us about his

experience as a 12 year old in Germany in the years  1946 & 1947. The title of his talk was “THE

HOLOCAUST THROUGH THE EYES OF AN AMERICAN 12 YEAR OLD.” If you missed this, you really missed some good information he presented which gave you another perspective as he told us

what he saw and the impression it left on his life.


The Gala “YA GOTTA HAVE HEART”, held on January 28th, was a huge success. We had about 115

people who attended, and we raised over $14,000 for Heart Research at HMO. The two speakers, Rabbi  Arthur Grae and Barbara Goldstein, were fantastic and sent us a powerful message that what we do “does make a difference.”  Sheriff Wayne Ivey did a fabulous job on the live auction. If you missed this Gala, we do have more events planned to help fulfill our mission to support Hadassah Medical Research, and I hope you will be able to join us in making the future events a success.  We have less than a month until our next fundraiser, the Luncheon & Fashion Show, to be held at the Indian River Colony Club on March 14th beginning at 11:30AM.   This promises to be a very entertaining event, and I hope you will be able to join us. While the cost of the luncheon ($36.00) covers our basic expenses, we make most of our money thru our drawings. The more items we have to raffle, the more tickets we can sell, and the more money we will make for HMO.  Please do your best to solicit donations of gift certificates, services or merchandise from businesses you frequent. Keep a copy of the donation request letter with you when going out and about your daily business. It would be appreciated if you let Trudy Horkin know where you are going to solicit so we don’t duplicate requests.    For those who didn’t get a copy of the donation request letter, let me know and I will be happy to forward one to you. My phone number is 622-6454 and my email is roseschoenfeld1941@gmail.com.


Our Hadassah Shabbat will be held on Friday, March 10th, at Temple Israel beginning at 7PM. I hope

you will be able to join us for this special service. Our chapter will be sponsoring the Oneg. If you are able to provide cookies, brownies, fruit, vegetable tray, mini-bagels and cream cheese or cheese and

crackers, let me know as soon as possible. Help will also be needed to set up the Oneg prior to the

beginning of the service.


On March 28th, a New & Prospective Member Tea will be held at the Heritage Isle Clubhouse

beginning at 10AM. Invitations will soon be going out, so we need your help now. If you know of

someone you would like to invite, please contact Lynn Nearman at 321-610-4788 or email her..


 There will not be a general meeting in March, as the Fashion Show is just the week before our

normally scheduled meeting date.    Our next general meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 18th at 10AM at the Eau Gallie Public Library.
