Chartered in November 1996, the Hilton Head chapter encompasses most of Beaufort Co., South Carolina and includes members from Bluffton, and Beaufort, as well as Hilton Head Island. We are a very active group, with 320 members (98% are Life Members) and growing constantly. Many families and retirees move to our lovely Low Country area from cold weather climates, and often our new members bring with them years of experience with other chapters. As a result, we have a large pool of new ideas to draw from and members with energy and dedication to carry them out. However, we also welcome members who have had no previous relationship with Hadassah, and make every effort to integrate them into the life of our chapter.

Hadassah Cards and Certificates
Certificates are a wonderful way to make a donation to Hadassah and celebrate a mitzvah or honor a memory. Whether you want to donate from $5.00 to $50.00 or more, one of the many beautiful certificates available is a meaningful way to express your wishes and make a gift to Hadassah at the same time.
Your gift can be directed to HMO, Youth Aliyah, Stem Cell Research or other research projects should you desire. I will customize your certificate with anything you would like to say.
Please contact me, Paula Rudman @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 843-715-9529
I will help you select a certificate, customize it, and mail it for you.
From our President
This month we will be celebrating Purim. We have a special connection with this holiday, as Hadassah was named after Queen Esther and founded around the time of Purim. Queen Esther was not afraid to live among non-Jews and to show how a Jew must be proud of his or her heritage, and to live everyday life in the same way, with enjoyment and accomplishment. As you partake in the holiday think about the strong woman who our organization is named for.
Our Contributors’ event is scheduled on April 20 and both Marsha Heisler and Joan Schwartz along with their committee have been hard at work to make this luncheon very special. This is one of the ways we say thank you for donating and helping Israel help the world.
There is new information in the Newsletter about the National Convention scheduled from July 25 to the 28 in Atlanta, GA. All members as well as Associates are welcome to attend. I have been to one National Convention, and it is an experience you will always remember.
We will once again join Congregation Beth Yam in hosting Israel Independence Day on May 12. There will be entertainment, delicious food and celebrating Israel becoming a state. Don’t miss this special event.
The Board (list on the last page of Newsletter) is here to answer questions, take suggestions and make the chapter what you want it to be. Take advantage of this information, and let us know how we can be of help to you.
