Prayers For Tucson

Three Hadassah Members

Three Hadassah members at Swearing In Day on Capitol Hill,
January 5, 2011. The members are (from right) Rebecca Krasnegor,
US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, whose grandmother was a founding member
of Hadassah’s Tucson chapter, and Rhoda Sulak.
"My Jewish heritage has really instilled in me the importance of…caring for the community."
— US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

The entire Hadassah community prays for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords as she clings to life, and for the 13 others injured in Saturday's shooting in Tucson. We mourn for those who perished that day, including her aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30; US District Judge John Roll, 63; Christina Green, 9; Dorothy Morris, 76; Phyllis Schneck, 79; and Dorwan Stoddard, 76.

A New York Times report, which notes that Rep. Giffords is a member of Hadassah, says a 2001 visit to Israel was a turning point in her life. Read The New York Times article >>
