|The Healing Power of Art|
Lexington Chapter of Hadassah
The Lexington Chapter of Hadassah partnered with the University of Kentucky Healthcare to present a program entitled "The Healing Power of Art – From Israel to Kentucky." Guided tours were conducted of the art collection that has been amassed from the very beginning of the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital's existence, including photographs, sculptures, folk art, stained glass, paintings and ceramics.Following the tour a fascinating program was presented highlighting Hadassah's artwork at EinKerem and Mount Scopus, including the Chagall Windows, Chaim Gross' Mother and Child statue, and The Tree of Life, the last work of sculptor Jacques Lipshitz. The program demonstrated that soothing the soul is as important as healing the body.
The University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital and Hadassah Hospital EinKerem have nurtured a relationship since they both opened their doors 51 years ago. On the 10th and 20th anniversaries, Dr. Kalman Mann, then Director General of Hadassah Hospital, came to Lexington for celebrations at the university and with Hadassah members. Throughout the years, Hadassah physicians have lectured, trained, and joined the faculty of the University of Kentucky.
