Marcie Natan, Hadassah National President, sent the following to Hadassah's Boston area volunteers and staff and wanted to share it here as well:
Just hours ago we at Hadassah House recognized Yom Hazikaron with reflections and a moment of silence. Now, just a short time later, we are saddened to hear of the deaths and injuries resulting from the explosions that occurred this afternoon at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. We know that little concrete information is available thus far, but please know that we at Hadassah stand with you and send our support during this difficult time.
On behalf of our Hadassah family, know that we are with you today.
