2018 Day in the District
On April 16th, six members of Hadassah Greater Miami met with Shirlee Lafleur, District Director of Operations for U.S. Representative Frederica Wilson (Democrat District 24) who had to fly to Washington to vote. Rep. Wilson shares several of Hadassah’s priorities.
She supports Israel through her participation in the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus. Although it did not pass, she sponsored an assault weapons ban. She has condemned fascist and hate-based attacks on our college campuses and she works to safeguard Medicare and Social Security.
Our team enjoyed an excellent visit and learned about the right ways to share our views with elected officials. The best way is phone calls and emails because regular mail takes two weeks due to security checks and signing petitions is virtually worthless. All positions on issues that are received are counted, so it is essential that we communicate our views with our Senators and Congressional Representatives.

From our President
Shalom to Members and Associates of Hadassah Greater Miami,
I write this article as we just finished celebrating the joyous holiday of Purim and now we are preparing for the upcoming holiday of Passover where we celebrate leaving Egypt as slaves and becoming a free Nation.
Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America also has much to celebrate:
We are celebrating this year the 100th Year of our School of Nursing, the 100th Year of our School of Ophthalmology, the 100th Year of Hadassah Medical Organization and the 70th Year of the State of Israel. We will be celebrating with Missions to Israel throughout the year culminating in our October Milestone Mission with a special track for Nurses. We have our Celebration 2018 Conference this May, where we will turn our Passion into Action by advocating at our Capitol. Please join us. There is strength in numbers. Please register to be a Hadassah Advocate on our website Hadassh.org/advocacy and join us for our local Days in the District organized by Dr. Judith Berson Levinson. Please contact her at email@example.com if you want to join us in making your voice heard.
Be part of our Celebration 2018! Turn your Passion into Action! There is so much that has happened in our Region this year. I attended our National Assembly meetings in L.A. in January with several of our Region’s Hadassah National Leaders. As Region President, I sit on the Camp Judaea Board and had the great pleasure to announce that our Region won an extra scholarship for our local campers for raising the most scholarship money per member per Region for Young Judaea. As part of Hadassah Celebration 2018, Freda DeKeyser Ganz, Ph.D. was our featured speaker on our phenomenal Nurses Tour in January at four venues in our Region.
Esther Bleiweiss and Marta Olchyk arranged Hadassah Shabbat Zachor at various Temples in our Region and the Hadassah Greater Miami Lecture Series. I spoke at Temple Menorah for Hadassah Shabbat Zachor with Hadassah Life Member Judge Ileana Torreh Bayouh and Esther Bleiweiss spoke at Temple Sinai and Temple Emanuel.
All of our Chapters, Kulanu B’Yachad, are having important and exciting events raising funds to renovate our iconic Round Building and our Research in Service to Humanity Campaign. Please support our Region’s and Chapters’ events and the important work our volunteers are doing! Thank you and Yasher Koach to my Boards and all of our Hadassah volunteers and donors! Kol HaKavod to the important work you are doing!! Please contact me to join us as a volunteer in the amazing work we are doing!
I hope you will join us on our Missions, in our Advocacy and at our Hadassah Celebration Conference in Washington DC this May! Please contact me for more information.
Kulanu B’Yachad, we together will continue the sacred lifesaving work of Hadassah.
Wishing you all a meaningful Passover!
Linda S. Goldstein,
President, Hadassah Greater Miami
