What Happened at Vegas Doesn't Stay in Vegas:
Convention Review

The 97th National Convention was educational and inspiring, a renewal of Hadassah warmth and sisterhood. But days before Convention began, IDF ground troops entered Gaza. We followed the hostilities and prayed together for peace. Shortly after the close of Convention, National President Marcie Natan led a delegation to Israel to show our support for Operation Protective Edge and our commitment to the Israeli people. See where the delegation went and what they saw.


 

Honoring Israel's Bravest

Watch your email next week, when Hadassah will announce a special way to memorialize the fallen soldiers of Operation Protective Edge.

"This is what makes Hadassah Medical Organization so unique in the world. it continues to be an island of peace for all peoples of the globe."
