Shanah Tovah

As we write this, Israel is quiet and the relentless rocket attacks from Gaza have ceased. We pray that the New Year, 5775, will bring peace to the land and people of Israel, and communities the world over who are suffering from disease, natural disasters, and war. From the entire Hadassah family to yours, we wish you Shanah Tovah, and a year of health and happiness ahead.
