How to Talk About Israel
Hadassah is often asked for advice about the appropriate way to respond to criticism of Israel from news articles, editorials, television and radio programs, speakers at public forums, and small group gatherings which frequently include individuals from multiple religious faiths. As Hadassah members and leaders, we support the democratically elected Government of Israel. We strive to understand the intricacies of the situation in the Middle East and be articulate and diplomatic advocates for Israel.
You can download a helpful guide and learn how to respond to challenging questions about Israel by going to “My Hadassah” and searching for “How to Talk about Israel” under Zionist Education.

Healthy Aging: Body and Mind
On October 11, Hadassah Suffolk held a timely and informative Health and Well-Being Conference and Fair. Those who attended learned how to recognize a possible melanoma, the symptoms of ovarian cancer and how and when to get help caring for an aging parent with dementia. After lunch, our keynote speaker, Melissa Kurtz, led us in a relaxing and yet energizing session of Jewish Meditation. Proceeds from the Health Fair went to benefit the 360o of Healing Campaign at Hadassah Hospital
Sunday in the Park
June 10, 2018
On June 10, we held our Fifth Annual Walk for Stem Cell Research. While eating a light breakfast of bagels, oranges and coffee, we were energized and entertained by the lively music of the Just Cause Band; then we walked through beautiful Dix Hills Park. Best of all, we raised just under $40,000 for this very crucial research which will bring hope to the many people suffering with ALS and MS as well as so many other life threatening diseases. Thank you to everyone who supported us.
