From our President
Dear Hadassah Family,
Spring is officially here with warmer temperatures and more sunshine just around the corner. Here in Hadassah Southern New Jersey we have so much to look forward to. As Hadassah members we are part of a chain of Jewish women stretching back more than a century. We find ourselves awed by Hadassah’s history of accomplishment but at the same time challenged by a new era in which we must adjust to engage more women. As Women Who DO, we will meet that challenge.
We are excited to announce our Education Symposium Day on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township. Our program, Taking Action: Combating the Rise in Anti-Semitism will include Keynote speaker, Linda Scherzer, former Mid-East correspondent for CNN, and workshops led by; Dr. Mehnaz Afridi, Associate Professor at Manhattan College, Galit Peleg, Consul for Public Diplomacy at the Consulate General of Israel in New York, and Dr. Charles Asher Small, Executive Director of The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy.
Please see the registration form under Events for additional information and send in your registration today. In honor of Member Appreciation Month anyone who becomes a member that day will be entered into a drawing for a beautiful Endless beginnings necklace; so bring your friends and family to this special day.
May is Member Appreciation Month. We want to recognize our members and celebrate the diversity of our membership. Our members are doctors, stay-at-home moms, students, real estate agents, community leaders—they are Women Who DO. They are women who can contribute to our efforts in the local community and nationally while strengthening Jewish continuity.
Did you know that May is Melanoma Awareness month? Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and one of the most preventable. Hadassah Medical Organization is pursuing advances in immunotherapy, a treatment based on creating a vaccine using the body’s own immune system. With your support, HMO maintains several active research programs to enhance melanoma immunotherapy.
Even though American Heart Month is over, Every Bite Counts: Hadassah’s Nutrition Program still beats on. There are four delicious recipes available from food guru, Shannon Sarna, approved as heart healthy by the American Heart Association. Download, print, and cut these cards to use as handouts at your events, no matter what the event topic is. Everyone likes a good recipe!
