WHAT BETTER WAY TO HONOR ALL THOSE
‘DADS’ IN YOUR LIFE? SONS?  GRANDSONS? BAR MITZVAH CELEBRANT?
 
MAKE THEM A PART OF ISRAEL

MAKE THEM A PART OF HADASSAH

MAKE THEM A PART OF YOU

SHOW THEM HOW MUCH YOU CARE

SHOW THEM HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU.
 
ASSOCIATES ARE STILL ONLY $212 through 2014.
NOW IS THE TIME!  LOCK IN FOR LIFE.
(IF NOW NOW – WHEN?)

DID YOU KNOW?

Associate membership in Hadassah leads to miracles.  The enrollment fee of $212 is invested in an endowment fund.  The income from this fund supports the life-enhancing and life-saving work of the Hadassah Medical Organization.  A one-time gift honors an Associate for life.  He will join with Hadassah women to make a difference in the world.

Call the Florida Atlantic Region office at 561-498-1012.

  From Associates Chair, Ira Seinfeld:

Our Associates have an exciting initiative to help our Florida Atlantic chapters put the "fun" back in Fundraising!

Our Associates Chair, Ira Seinfeld, distributed a handsome brochure at our
Fall 2012 Region Board meeting
. It outlines four exciting and fun-filled opportunities for your chapter, with the help of your associates, to bring in $1,000 in just one amazing hour of activities.

If you would like a copy, we will mail a brochure to you. 

Questions? Contact Ira at lokandaira@aol.com .

                         Each month we celebrate the New Moon with a 

      Rosh Hodesh Gathering

‘GOD ANNOUNCES NEW HOLIDAY ONLY FOR WOMEN -
FOR THEIR CONTINUED LOYALTY IN REFUSING TO FUND GOLDEN CALF PROJECT!'

 

A wonderful experience that is afforded to all members of FAR is our Rosh Hodesh gatherings at the Morikami Picnic Area, before you approach the main museum. It is reached from Jog Road, opposite the South County Civic Center.

Each month, on the day of the new moon, a different Hadassah Chapter facilitates the program.  For the month of Tammuz, 2012, the group was Rabin Chapter of Valencia Lakes.

The Rabin Chapter, under the helm of Anita Lieberman, president, had lots of singing, a meditation and interaction with the women present.  They treated everyone to delicious home-made treats, in addition to the Challah and juice always provided.

The topics that are usually featured are holidays in the new month or memorable events in history – sometimes prominent women of the Bible, from history, or contemporary times.

A new mezuzah, created by Chellee Siegel, FAR Rosh Hodesh Co-Chair has been affixed to the doorpost of the pavilion to remind us that we have Divine protection as we experience the beauty of nature, our heritage and each other.

Unfortunately, we do not yet have a Chapter to sponsor the Iyar celebration.  Therefore, we have cancelled the event on May 1st at the Morikami.

We urge all members to mark their calendars to be with us for the month of Sivan.  And come every month to nourish your soul with your colleagues and friends of Hadassah. All programs start at 10 AM sharp.
