Dear Hadassah Members,

Shana Tova and welcome to Hadassah Northern NJ. I want to send a hearty Mazel Tov to all our chapters and members who have worked so hard all year long. You bring in new members and increase your fundraising efforts with your great programs. Hadassah Northern NJ has so many wonderful events for our members. We encourage our members to participate in events not only at their home chapters, but at chapters around the region.

Hadassah Northern NJ is dedicated to continuing the dream of Henrietta Szold of looking to the future. Chapters are holding fundraising events to bring in the much needed money to help our hospitals and our youth villages continue to excel. We all share the same passion in our mission, and Hadassah holds a special place in our hearts.

Historically, strength is in numbers, so do your best to continue to bring in new members this year. Share the joy of Hadassah Membership with family and friends. Let them know what a wonderful organization we are, and how friendly and caring our members are. Invite friends to your chapter's events and to our Hadassah Northern NJ Region events. Become a life member this year because the price is still only $212!

Check out Hadassah's Advocacy Center and make your impact stronger! We are Hadassah, the power of women who do and we advocate for change and the betterment of humanity. This year we have three priorities in our mission. Hadassah Medical Organization and Health, Zionism, and Israel, and Domestic Advocacy. All our chapters will be working to create meetings and events focusing on these priorities. We will also be working to educate our members and the community at large about our Research in Service to Humanity. We will hold educational and fundraising events aligning with the national health months here in the US. We will hold heart health events in February, Multiple Sclerosis educational events in March, Melanoma events in May and Breast cancer events in October. We will be sharing the amazing research and treatments Hadassah has developed to combat these diseases. Please look at our region bulletin and check out our upcoming events. I look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

May you be inscribed in the Book of Life! G'mar Chatimah Tovah!
