More than 200 women attended the Florida Atlantic Region of Hadassah's recent Annual Spring Conference, "Hadassah Sails into the Second Century," at the Marriott Resort in Delray Beach.
Carol Weiss, outgoing Region President, was the keynote luncheon speaker. The daylong event featured afternoon workshops and the installation of the new Hadassah Region executive board, including Joan Baron as incoming President.
The event included a panel representing the founders of the State of Israel including David Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, Henrietta Szold, Ze'evJabotinsky, Chaim Weizmannand Theodor Herzl. The "panel" explained their ideals and how they impacted the creation of the State of Israel. The panel discussion was followed by a video on practical Zionism.
A highlight of the day was guest speaker Professor Charles Sprung, head of the ICU at Hadassah Medical Center in Israel. Sprung spoke on the opening of Hadassah's new 500-bed Sara Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. His pride in Hadassah Medical Organization was evident throughout his talk and enabled the audience to feel connected to the new hospital.
