Hadassah Southern New England
Hadassah Southern New England geographically covers the area from Cape Cod to Springfield, from Sudbury to Plymouth, Massachusetts (and everything in between!), and all of Rhode Island. Within our 17 chapters, we have Rosh Hodesh (new moon) study groups, book clubs, and other educational programming, covering topics about Israel, women’s health care and empowerment, legislative and political issues, and almost any topic you might be able to imagine. Our members also have fun while creating valued friendships through connections with other Hadassah women. You’ll find fashion shows, Mah Jongg tournaments, cooking demonstrations, paint nights, and shopping boutiques. We know that even as we learn, grow, collaborate, and socialize, that Hadassah’s mission requires funding. Therefore, all of our chapters focus on raising the necessary funds to keep Hadassah - The Women’s Zionist Organization of America robust and proud, as we further our mission in our second century. We work conscientiously for social change because of our commitment to Tikkun Olam – the Jewish imperative to repair the world, to leave this planet a little better than when we found it. When was the last time an organization offered you the chance to heal some of the world’s ills, and in the process, be part of a community of women to make your own life more meaningful? This is today’s Hadassah.

From our President
Shalom, Hadassah friends!
I am honored to be the president of the Southern New England Region of Hadassah. A Life Member from the age of 10, I am proud to be part of a 5-generation Hadassah family. I have an extensive Hadassah past, and, like Henrietta Szold, I am looking to the future, too. It is always enjoyable for me to visit our chapters’ events, as well as to represent our region on the Hadassah National Board.
I look forward to hearing your ideas, suggestions and (constructive!) criticism. We, as Hadassah, do marvelous things for people in Israel, in the United States, and around the world. As an individual, I have grown as a woman, a mother, and as a volunteer through my involvement with Hadassah. You are offered opportunities for growth and empowerment through Hadassah, as well.
I am looking forward to seeing and getting to know you at an upcoming event, whether it’s on a chapter, region, or national level. Please join me in learning, growing, healing, sharing, and repairing the world, while developing lifelong friendships and having fun!
Susan Musicant Shikora,
President, Hadassah Southern New England Region
