From our President
Welcome to the Hadassah Metulla Group
We Hadassah Women are all in this journey together. We all will learn from each other through good will and determination. Our group is diverse in ideas and talents, and we value such diversity; our skills are different yet complement each other. We all have infinite forces within us that have the power to shape and form our experience of the world. We ask you to find your power and put it to work for Hadassah. You have the potential to change a life, with every decision you make. You have the potential to save a life with every action you take.
Each one of you is unique and wonderful, and we welcome your passion, your compassion and your enthusiasm. Hadassah is embracing us and bringing us together, let us embrace Hadassah and support its many projects.
We all feel so much pride in our heart to be part of such an outstanding organization. We leave you with a quote from the late Elie Wiesel:
“Today, it is incumbent upon us to recount simply all the pride that Hadassah inspires in the hearts of so many Jews in Israel, in America and around the world.” (Martin Levin,” It Takes a Dream: The Story of Hadassah “).
Today, let us say to Hadassah, to its leaders and to its members - thank you for existing, thank you for all the honor you bestow on Jewish womanhood.
We are stronger together. Working together we will grow together!
Remember our motto: Do more - with more - for more.
