Henrietta Szold - Zionist, Educator (Part 1)
There is no need to fictionalize Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah, and least of all is there [a] need for Hadassah to do so. There are still in our midst many who knew her personally, who remember the manner of her speech, the clarity and integrity of her thinking, the one­ness of her purpose, who sometimes differed with her, but always were elevated and inspired by her idealism and moral stature.

Children Are Not Simply Small Adults
A Friday Story
Many times in the course of the year, Hadassah saves the lives of people whose conditions were so serious it didn't appear they would survive. While this does not happen every day, it is not a rare occurrence either. Often it is the skill and experience of our superbly trained medical staff that make the difference. Often it is the sophisticated equipment we were fortunate to acquire that is instrumental. For one five-year-old girl, Hadassah's new Pediatric Neurosurgery Unit and its talented head, Dr. Mony Benifla, made the difference. Date: 1/21/2011

The bedside doctors were pupils: in the time when Palestine was isolated from the advances of medicine, courses were organized to help maintain the current of progress which was the life blood of modern medical science.
