More than 125 Hadassah women from the Chicago area enjoyed a production of an original play, Making the Wilderness Bloom, at a recent membership event. Written by Leah Polin from Skokie and Lincolnwood resident Elise Ginsparg, the play highlights Jewish women's contributions to American culture. Members of North Boundary Hadassah played the roles of outstanding, enterprising and famous women in the United States, from their arrival in 1654 to the present day.
