The 2014 Executive Board welcomes the Shabbat 

A Texas-sized Welcome to the Greater Southwest Region! GSW covers a huge territory spanning three states, but our hearts are close because together we all make Hadassah and our projects a priority in our lives. Our Web Site makes Hadassah more accessible with 'up to the minute' information for all members and we hope for interested prospective members. So keep checking back and keep sending your news to share. Please get excited and get active - it's the new face of Hadassah, stepping into the Information Age. Let us adapt to new communication forms. Come on in -- the Web is fine!
