Welcome to the Richmond Chapter of Hadassah!

  

The Richmond Chapter of Hadassah is a women’s group of over 1000+ women who motivate and inspire each other and the community to: 

• Strengthen their partnership with Israel by supporting pace setting health care, education, youth institutes, and land development.
• Ensure Jewish continuity through education and support of its Young Judaea youth programs. 
• Advocate health awareness through education. 
• Act as a force on social issues that impact upon us as American Jewish women. 
• Promote personal growth through enrichment opportunities and education.

Contact us or visit the "Our Events" page to learn more about our programs and activities.  If you are interested in gifting a recent graduate of a Virginia college or university a FREE lifetime membership, click here to see the wonderful gift Richmond Hadassah member Emily Sterling is providing.  And if you'd like to volunteer with our award winning Check It Out project, click here for more information.
