From our President

joyce laiter

"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.  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," wrote Elie Wiesel.

Our programs are designed to educate, empower and enjoy.  Let's work together.

For some, it begins with the personal.

For others, it's political.

For some, it starts with the past.

For others, it's always about tomorrow.

We all share certain important values in common.  We have been blessed by this shared legacy.

Hadassah is brimming with possibilities, as we stand at the open door to the next century - the possibilities of previously unimaginable medical breakthroughs such as stem cell cures for multiple sclerosis, devices to control epilepsy, and therapies to stop, delay or mitigate Parkinson's disease. We invite you to share the journey.
