Dear Great Plains Region Members who are Attending National Convention:

For the only time since 2012... Great Plains Region is very pleased to announce our Private Region Dinner at a National Convention.

We have gone to great lengths to plan an extraordinary dinner for your enjoyment!

Our selected menu at Maggiano’s Little Italy will be a memorable one.  Maggiano’s specializes in Southern Italian cuisine. Our dinner will be   served in a three course family-style presentation.  It’s everything – from appetizer to dessert.  Coffee, teas and sodas are included. Any alcoholic beverages are additional.

Your cost of $55 per person covers the dinner, the event fee and tax as well as gratuity.... and the camaraderie to see good friends over dinner will start your convention the right way – the Hadassah way!

Begin  your National Convention experience with your Great Plains Sisters and Friends. We Want You To Join Us!

(As with most Hadassah events, if any Region Board Member needs assistance to attend our convention dinner, please call me confidentially.)

We can’t think of a better way to kick off this fabulous convention experience for you!

President, Great Plains Region Hadassah

Young Women 2013


Congratulations to Dale Marcus, Great Plains immediate Past President, for being elected to the Hadassah Foundation Board of Directors. She begins a three-year term January, 2013.

The Hadassah Foundation funds innovative and creative projects that serve women and girls from diverse cultural groups within Israel and the Jewish community in the United States. The Foundation is a philanthropic pioneer in the fields of economic security for low-income Israeli women and leadership and self-esteem programs for adolescent Jewish girls and young women in the United States. Since 2000, the Hadassah Foundation has awarded grants totaling $5.7 million to 60 nonprofit organizations. This year grants totaled $284,000. Hadassah is now in the process of distributing those funds.

The 2012 grant recipients include organizations in both the United States and Israel that support women’s empowerment, financial literacy and workplace equality. In Israel, grants were awarded to Bar Ilan University’s Rackman Center for the Advancement of Women’s Status, the Center for Jewish-Arab Economic Development, the Center for Women’s Justice, Economic Empowerment for Women in Israel, Itach, IT Works, Negev Institute, Olim BeYachad, Shatil, Supportive Community, Women’s Spirit, and Yedid. The Hadassah Foundation is also one of 17 American women’s philanthropy funds contributing to the newly-formed Jewish Women’s Collaborative to focus on specific issues pertaining to women in Israeli society.

In the U.S., the Hadassah Foundation focused on women and girls’ empowerment through grants to Avodah, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, Jewish Women International, Keshet, Moving Traditions, and Shalom Bayit.
