St. Louis Hosts National Hadassah Meeting in July
The Hadassah National Business Meeting will be held in St. Louis, at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton on July 18-19, 2017. During this meeting, we will mark St. Louis Hadassah’s 100th Anniversary with Hadassah members and friends from St. Louis and around the country with a special event.
New Virtual Office
As you may have heard, the St. Louis Chapter has changed the way it operates – the physical office in the Jewish Federation Building has closed – and we are operating virtually, out of the Chicago-North Shore office, in Northbrook, IL. Our Hadassah phone number 314-991-0434 remains the same and is answered in Chicago. Our mailing address is also the same – 12 Millstone Campus Drive, St. Louis, MO 63146.
Cards and tributes may be conveniently ordered with a charge or check by calling the office or via email at email@example.com. Hadassah Cards are also available at our events or through local board members who keep a supply. Locally, please contact Linda Spitzer Gavatin.
As we enter 2017, St. Louis Hadassah offers a number of ways you can share your expertise, initiative and creativity. If you are interested in bringing your experience and enthusiasm to our board or one of our committees, we would love to hear from you. Please email St. Louis Hadassah at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have all types of positions and we’ll provide support and training so you feel comfortable. Working with Hadassah is a win-win. You’ll feel great for helping and we’ll benefit from your skills and knowledge. Help us do the important work of Hadassah!

Advocate, walk, run, learn, give, join, DO — for Israel, for your community, for yourself
We believe in building a world where our Jewish values in action create strong community and an enduring Israel. With members in every congressional district in the US, we are everywhere, working and learning together, building leaders, empowering women to effect change locally, nationally and internationally. Hadassah women are activists, fundraisers, visionaries, wives, sisters, daughters and mothers.

We have exciting upcoming St. Louis Chapter Hadassah events! We look forward to seeing you at our Annual Latkes and Vodkas Installation and Hanukkah Celebration on Wednesday, December 2nd at Shaare Emeth. There's still space if you'd like to attend! Our book club meets on January 4th and we are reading A Remarkable Kindness by Diana Bletter. On January 11th, Eithan Galun, MD, Director of Gene Therapy at Hadassah Hospital and Hebrew University will present a talk on everything that is being done in order to effect life-saving cures. Please see below for more details on these events and RSVP to the office.
Look in your mailboxes soon for our annual Hanukkah Appeal letter. This year, a generous donor has offered to match new contributions for the Tower, up to one million dollars, before the end of 2015. More information about the million dollar match can be found here in the newsletter.
We encourage you to share the important work of Hadassah by bringing friends and family to events and asking them to join us! It's easy now -- Hadassah has a Membership Gifting Campaign that runs through the end of the year. Any life member or associate can gift a year of annual membership to anyone 17 years of age or older. See the left side bar, here in the newsletter, for more information. Also, through the remainder of the year, life membership is only $212!
Hasassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, is a volunteer led organization that inspires a passion for and commitment to its partnership with the land and people of Israel.

Hadassah connects Jewish women and empowers its members and supporters, as well as, youth in Israel and America though opportunities for personal growth, health and well-being, education, advocacy and Jewish continuity. You can be proud of the role you play in our success, whether it's as a volunteer or financial contributor.
If you would like to get involved, we would love to have you. See the left side bar in this newsletter about volunteering. Our members, from every congressional district in the nation, are activists, fundraisers and visionaries. They don’t just talk. Hadassah women DO!
