Henrietta Szold - Health Pioneer (Part 6)
The Founder’s Role in Hadassah’s Medical Program
On every level of Hadassah's work the keystone of development was the idea of teaching. The nurses taught mothers how to care for the children. The school luncheons were nutrition lessons. 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.

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

From Finance To Research – Exploring Jewish Identity
When Olivia Bodzin graduated with a degree in business and finance from California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo in 2007, she had no idea she'd be interning for The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) doing research about Jewish identity in Israel. But the opportunity came along and she jumped at the chance to increase her knowledge, skills and experience while living in Israel. Date: 1/13/2011

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

Henrietta Szold - Health Pioneer (Part 4)
The Founder’s Role in Hadassah’s Medical Program
For the first six months after his arrival, an immigrant's health was Hadassah's responsibility. To provide him when he fell ill with a doctor's care, a hospital bed, nursing and drugs, was a relatively simple matter. But that was not the way of Henrietta Szold. She looked beyond the individual to the community as a whole and to the people that was to build a new land. Date: 1/6/2011

Henrietta Szold - Health Pioneer (Part 3)

The authors, Tamar de Sola Pool and Minnie W. Halpern, were long-time members of Hadassah's national board. Tamar de Sola Pool was national president from 1939-1943 and knew Henrietta Szold well.
