Hadassah Shabbat Zachor
March 14-15

Hadassah was founded during the Purim season, and is Esther's Hebrew name. The first annual Hadassah Shabbat Zachor will be held on the Shabbat preceding Purim, which occurs this year on March 14-15.

Our Hadassah Shabbat Zachor Program-in-a-Box was created to share the wonderful work of Hadassah with your synagogue. It contains a press release with quotes from the rabbis of three of our movements, along with suggested prayers, readings and a D'var Torah.

Here's how to get started >>

"God bless you for what you have done and for what you are doing, with hope that the Government of Israel and you and all other good people rescue Hadassah Hospitals in Jerusalem. "
