Welcome to Charleston! Whatever the reason you are interested in our wonderful community, know that you’ve made a superb choice. The Jewish Community has been a major Charleston asset for more than 250 years. Hadassah is proud to be part of the Charleston community, and is extremely proud to have so much local support. Our Chapter was founded in 1921, just nine years after Hadassah was officially founded. Our geographic reach is the South Carolina Tri-County area encompassing Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley counties. As one of the country’s earliest and busiest port cities, Charleston has a long and strong history within the Jewish Community. With Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Chabad congregations, we are extremely proud of the diversity of our Hadassah members. As of 2015, our chapter currently has more than 500 members and more than 70 Associates.

Funds for Breastpump Campaign

In Search Of …  Final Funds for Breastpump Campaign

The Charleston Chapter set a goal to raise funds to buy a medical grade breastpump for the Women’s & Children’s Wing of Hadassah Hospital.  We’ve still got some way to go to meet our goal.  Please help.  Your tax deductible donation can save lives.  Please go online at www.Hadassah.org or send a check to Ruth Oser, Chatper Treasurer, 4 Hobonny Lane, Charleston 29407.


The Charleston chapter generally holds program meetings bi-monthly from September through June, open meetings more often than that, and special events and activities sprinkled across the year. 

Study Group
Women's Study Group

Programs are constructed to meet the needs and interests of different segments of our Hadassah community.  A women’s study group called “Women-to-Women” meets monthly, and is going into its twelfth year. This program invariably stimulates thought among the group members and has proven to be a great way to introduce new and prospective members to our Chapter.

From our President

From Gail Snow & Ilene Turbow – Co-Presidents  


The year 5777 was literally blown in on Hurricane Matthew.  On Rosh Hashanah it was written, and on Yom Kippur it was sealed…..and hopefully none of us were fated to have hurricane-related tsuris.


5777. That's an easy date to remember. What is the significance of the Hebrew years ? No--not the creation of the world. Rosh Hashanah marks the birthday of Adam and Eve according to tradition. (Six cosmic days after Creation)


Since we’re not sending this until half the month is over; we’re sending a very brief edition.  Please come to the featured events.
