HMO One Page Update


Now is the time to stand in solidarity with Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO).

My previous emails and our dedicated HMO UPDATE webpage have kept you informed about the recovery effort at HMO. But now is the time for you to take action. Negotiations with the Government of Israel continue, but to date have not resulted in the changes we need to keep Hadassah's hospitals thriving and serving the people of Israel.

On Tuesday, March 18, a large tent will be erected outside the Knesset in Jerusalem. Hundreds of supporters—including physicians, nurses, former patients, and concerned citizens—will make their voices heard. I will be leading a contingent of HMO Board members, HWZOA past presidents, Hadassah Office in Israel and representatives from Hadassah International, Youth Aliyah and Young Judaea. We will present a petition in support of HMO with more than 20,000 signatures to the Government of Israel, and invite Members of the Knesset to visit the tent and meet with us. On the same day, we are calling for a show of solidarity at the Israeli Consulate in New York City.

There are three important ways to show your love of Hadassah and your support of Israel’s finest medical organization, even if you are not in the New York area.

  1. Sign the petition today.
    It must be signed by Wednesday, March 12.
  2. NYC Area: Stand in solidarity with us!
    Join us in front of the Israeli Consulate, 800 Second Avenue at 43rd Street, NYC, 10:00-10:30am EDT on Tuesday, March 18. Signs will be provided, or you can bring your own (paper only; no sticks permitted).  Email communicationsdepartment@hadassah.org to let us know you are coming.
  3. Join our virtual rally! ! Take a “selfie” (photo of yourself) holding a sign in support of Hadassah's hospitals, and post it on Hadassah’s Facebook page. And get together with members of your chapter and take a group “selfie” for Facebook.
    Suggested signs:
    • I stand with Hadassah's hospitals
    • Support Hadassah's hospitals
    • I want fair treatment for Hadassah's hospitals
    • I’m with Hadassah's hospitals
  4. Tweet your support to #ImWithHadassahHospitals. Encourage your family and friends to do the same.

Hadassah Medical Organization is close to my heart, and I know it is to yours too. Our patient care is unparalleled. Our pioneering research benefits people in every corner of the globe. We have sent over a billion dollars in the last ten years to HMO—over $80-million each year, including maintenance, endowments and special gifts. It has been our privilege to do so. But now we need the Government of Israel to provide the same level of financial support to Hadassah's hospitals that it does to Israel's public hospitals.

Keep up to date by visiting the Hadassah HMO UPDATE page on our website often. Stand with us!


Marcie Natan
National President
