New Director General Appointed

"After a thorough search process, I am very happy to announce that Avigdor Kaplan has been chosen unanimously by the HMO Board to serve as Hadassah Medical Organization's Director General. His credentials are impressive. He is credited with steering Clalit Health Fund, Israel's largest health fund, from deficit to financial solvency and building CLAL Insurance Enterprises, which he joined in 1997, into Israel's largest insurance company. Kaplan is the first non-physician to be named Director General. A physician will be appointed as Chief Medical Officer to complement Professor Kaplan's expertise in management."

—Marcie Natan, Hadassah National President

A Hadassah Mitzvah: Yahrzeit Program

The telephone rang. A woman, her voice charged with emotion, wanted to establish Yahrzeits for her deceased parents and husband, as well as an Advance Yahrzeit for herself. She currently lives in Florida and does not know if her children will recite Kaddish for her and her loved ones. Her synagogue comprises an aging population and the congregation has diminished to the point where it can no longer support a rabbi to recite kaddish.

Who will say Kaddish? She is depending on Hadassah.

Who will say Kaddish for your loved one?
