Henrietta Szold - Health Pioneer (Part 7)
The Founder’s Role in Hadassah’s Medical Program
From the heart of the city of Jerusalem to what is now called Kiryat Hadassah in the Judean hills is a distance of about five kilo­meters, or three miles.

That road has been named the Henrietta Szold Road, and it leads to the great new Hadas­sah-Hebrew University Medical Center. Date: 1/17/2011

Henrietta Szold - Health Pioneer (Part 5)
The Founder’s Role in Hadassah’s Medical Program
Henrietta Szold attached superlative importance to science and scientific work in the application of the art of medicine. Without science, she stated, we have no future. Our scientific foundations are fundamental and inescapable in the development of Hadassah's health services. With that standard before her, it was natural that shortly after the organization of the Hebrew University a bond was established between its divisions of biological sciences and Hadassah.

Letter To A Jewish Constituent From Gabrielle Giffords When She Was Running For Congress
Growing up, my family's Jewish roots and tradition played an important role in shaping my values. The women in my family served as strong role models for me as a girl. In my family, if you want to get something done, you take it to the women relatives! Like my grandmother, I am a lifetime member of Hadassah and now a member of Congregation Chaverim. When I served in the State Senate in Arizona, I had the opportunity to visit Jerusalem. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Date: 1/13/2011
