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
Last month, in our letter, we asked for volunteers to help support Hadassah of Northern Virginia in any way that is comfortable and fits within your current obligations. We are very pleased to announce that we have two new Executive Board Members: Laurie Serber and Margie Somers.
Laurie Serber has been installed as the Co-Treasurer. This position is a wonderful fit as she has a background in accounting. Laurie is a Life Member with a long history of involvement in Hadassah. She has held several leadership positions including Chapter President in Cincinnati, Ohio and as a member of the Northern Seaboard Region Board.
Margie Somers, also a Life Member, is the new Co-Vice President of Membership. She is very excited to take on this new role. She has been active in Jewish charities in Northern Virginia for over 30 years. Margie is being mentored by Rhonda Weiner as she takes on this very import role. She welcomes any ideas from members on how to grow our chapter. If you know of anyone that would like to join or is new to the area, please get in touch with her. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We still have open board positions if anyone is interested, including Vice President for Fundraising, Corresponding Secretary and an Organizational Vice President. There also is room to be on committees, either for on-going work or to work on an individual project.
There are several changes in the works, being initiated by the National Board for the domestic Hadassah organization, i.e., in the US. Some will directly impact our chapter starting January 1, 2017, which include our becoming a chapter in Hadassah Greater Washington. We believe the changes will have a positive effect on our chapter. There will be a separate article that covers the details at a future date. We will share information as we receive it.
Best wishes for an easy transition from summer to fall, vacation to routine, and preparation for the upcoming season of spirituality and awe. We hope that 5777 will bring you and your families’ good health, happiness and peace.
