|January 2013 Fundraisers|
Ahava Machar Hadassah, which serves the communities of Wantagh, Seaford and Bellmore, sponsored a fundraiser at the Forest City Community Center on Jan. 13. The program featured a presentation by Cantor Steve Sher from Temple B'nai Torah in Wantagh. He also shared numerous anecdotes from his career in temples across the country.
Recently, members of Wilmette Hadassah in the Chicago/North Shore Chapter enjoyed an afternoon of laughter at Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah. Wilmette's own Joanne Stein, noted lecturer and educator, presented the "Story of Jewish Comedians in America." All proceeds benefitted medical research at Hadassah Hospital.
The Baltimore Chapter of Hadassah recently held its annual Cell-A-Brate event with WYPR serving as a media partner. Participants enjoyed dining and dancing at the Sheraton Inner Harbor to raise funds for stem cell advocacy and research.
