Have you heard about Chai Society, Hadassah’s newest annual giving program?
Members all over the country are choosing where they want their annual donation to go. You can change a life, give a helping hand to the most vulnerable, or support future medical miracles.
Would you consider giving $15 or $30 each month to be part of Hadassah’s Chai Society? Your generosity as an annual giver would ensure that Hadassah can continue to provide life-saving care to the people of Israel. Especially during times when there is war or terror attacks, maintaining the state-of-the-art trauma care that Hadassah Medical Organization is known for is critically important. While we pray for peace in Israel, we must do all we can to heal those who are ill or injured. Your annual support would make that possible.
We hope to welcome you to Chai Society in the near future.

From our President
Shana Tovah. We hope that you had an enjoyable and sweet New Year. It is always a challenge to get back into the routine again. Both of us have school-aged children who had extremely full and exciting summers and now we are getting used to school again. For Hadassah this means scheduling a meaningful and fun set of programs.
Thank you for the great feedback from the survey few months ago. We used it in our programming summit and are working towards some great programming; hopefully you find something appealing and will join us - see the events listing at the end of the newsletter.
