STUDY GROUPS – Does your chapter have a study group? It can be a book group, a discussion group or special speakers on a theme. We can assist you in choosing a topic and give you a curriculum for it. We also want to know what you have been doing in your chapters. We will highlight them in our newsletters. BERTHA KATZ is ready and willing to work with you and your chapter to select a topic and plan your study group.
MACHON – a peer led study group that many chapters are doing. Fran Sachs is leading one at the Region office once a month on Sunday morning that is open to all. To find out how to get your own Machon group started, please contact Fran through the Region office at email@example.com.
GREEN TEAM/OUTREACH – Marcia Werby and her new co-chair, Janet Leventon, are ready and willing to speak to your chapters about the environment and going green. They also are coordinating JEWISH COALITION FOR LITERACY which helps children in schools with reading. Now is the time to plan a special program for Tu B’Shevat. We have programs available for you to use.
ROSH HODESH – Our co-chairs of Rosh Hodesh help make the experience wonderful for all who participate. We meet once a month at Morikami in a serene setting, perfect for this special day. Please see the list of Rosh Hodesh dates in the e- bulletin. If you would like to learn more about Rosh Hodesh and find out how your chapter can participate, please contact Gail, Susan or Ruth through the Region office.
"GO FORTH AND STUDY” National’s education material is available on Hadassah’s intranet site. Each month, it is jam-packed with material to use. Make your own library. Download it each month to your computer, and look through it regularly. To access this material, go to: www.intranet.hadassah.org . Log on is: hadassah(lower case), password is: szold (lower case). At this point, the computer will prompt you to create a new log on and password. After you have done that (you only need to do it one time), go to Resources, then to Jewish/Zionist Education. There you will find each month’s packet of Go Forth and Study. It has selections for a Book Group, Zionist news, Hebrew studies, articles you can use for your bulletin or present at a meeting, and so much more. If you already have your new log on and password, please use them from now on.
MOVIE – “IRON JAWED ANGELS,” a history of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Terri Kline of Shulamit has this DVD and is willing to lend it to other chapters. This is a great program to present before Election Day.
Your Region Education Committee is committed to strengthening education in our chapters, and we are always available to assist you to make your members better informed. Please contact us to help you in any way you need us.

One of the founding tenets of Hadassah is to educate its members, and for 100 years, we have provided all our chapters with education material to make sure that you have all the information you need. Now, with less material available on a national level, the FAR Education committee can help you even more.
Do you want information on holidays?
Are you planning a study group?
How do you find out what is going on with Hadassah projects?
Do you want a short DVD or video on Hadassah or a book for reference?
Are you interested in ecology?
Want to learn Hebrew?
Our Rosh Hodesh programs are outstanding and the chapters who participate love to prepare the programs.
Do you want a “one on one” session on Education?
All of this and more is available to you through your Region Education Committee. Our members will be delighted to assist you to help you make education in your chapter exciting and interesting.
