Hadassah Southern NJ Region Associates
The Hadassah Southern NJ Region Associates presented its first "Leadership and Commitment" Award to veteran television news reporter Gabe Pressman on September 23 at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township. Hadassah members and Associates gathered to hear about Pressman's experiences when he covered events in the Middle East for WNBC-TV. He has reported from Hadassah Hospital during more than two dozen working trips to Israel and stated that he "was very impressed by Hadassah Hospitals and the way Arab and Israeli doctors and nurses work together. It was a completely nonpolitical atmosphere."
The proceeds from the brunch benefited stem cell research at the Hadassah Medical Organization.
