LETTER FROM THE NATIONAL PRESIDENT
The Celebration of the Century
It takes my breath away to think that we are entering our second century in 2012. Hadassah planted its roots in Jerusalem before there was an Israel, and in the United States before its founders had the right to vote. What a triumph—and what a reason to celebrate!
And celebrate we will at our Centennial Convention, October 15-18 in Jerusalem. We will meet some of Israel's most fascinating people; visit ancient sites; eat, drink and dance with the Young Judaeans on Year Course. We will connect with our project—Hadassah Medical Organization, Youth Aliyah, Hadassah Academic College—and see how our work with the Jewish National Fund has made the desert lush and green. We will have the thrill of dedicating the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower at Ein Kerem—Hadassah's most ambitious undertaking ever and our gift to the people of Israel on our Centennial anniversary.
Most important of all, we will be celebrating together.
Whether you are new to our family or have been a member for decades, please join us for this gala event. With such a variety of things to do and places to visit, there will be choices for you, your children and grandchildren, so bring them along to share this unforgettable experience. Let's make this the largest gathering in Hadassah history.
Some events come only once in a lifetime. Our Centennial Convention is one of them. Come and see the impact you have had on Israel. Come and celebrate the work of your hands.
I look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem.
