Don Sacarob, VP, National Committee of Hadassah Associates, made a presentation to newly elected Congressman, Gerry Connolly of the 11th Congressional District of Virginia. The presentation included his Associate pin, a beautifully matted and framed Associate certificate and a welcome letter from our Hadassah National President.
Congressman Connolly was the guest speaker at a fundraising luncheon of the Northern Virginia Chapter which was attended by Hadassah Associates and members.
He was very moved by the presentation and stated his delight that as a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, he has been to Israel several times and feels a kinship with Hadassah and that going to Hadassah would have a new meaning for him. He added that the certificate "would be permanently on display in his Capitol Hill office in a most prominent place."
