From our President

Susan Lafer


In the words of Elie Wiesel, "It is a given in the Jewish world: if you want a project to come to fruition, if you want an initiative to have a follow-up, you think of Hadassah. Hadassah is more than an organization: it's a family - a family that loves and is loved. It loves to help those in need, the weak, and the ill, in short, those who need help. And it is a family that is loved because it does these things with as much devotion as competence… The women of Hadassah know what they want to do, and they do it well."

Hadassah is:

  • The Power of Women Who Do

  • The Power of Women Who Heal

  • The Power of Women for Israel

Hadassah Florida Central focuses on education. We provide you with all the tools necessary to advocate for Israel and uses facts to stop the BDS movements and anti-Semitic attacks against Israel and Jews, leadership opportunities and training. Our local chapters hold meetings, educational events and programming to help keep them informed about the latest research that is ongoing at Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO), advocacy opportunities and just plain fun, engaging activities. Hadassah, Florida Central does the same for our membership on a larger scale 2 times a year. Attendees come from Naples to Tallahassee to participate and meet their friends from other geographical areas.

Hadassah Florida Central has a Facebook page, please visit it, often for the latest from around the country. If you are not currently a member of our dynamic and far-reaching organization, we hope you will join us.
