Message from the President
Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Region (PNW) website. The Pacific Northwest Region includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska.
There is so much happening in Hadassah with our local chapters and National Hadassah I don’t know where to start!
You can read about our Hadassah nurse who heads up the Nurses Masters Program at our hospital, who will be speaking in Seattle and Spokane.
You can mark your calendar for our September visit by National Hadassah President, Marcie Natan, to Seattle, Tacoma and Bellingham.
And you will see a Hadassah Happening ad in the JTNews every other issue tooting our horn about the IMPACT Hadassah is making in this world. (See below).
Nationally, we signed up so many members in 2011 and 2012 that now we are sorting them to the chapters where they live. Read about Project Connect Locally. Know someone who fits this category?
We have a new group at the National Level call PRAZE: Program, Advocacy, Zionism, Education. Here is where you will find our new Heart Healthy program (more in our next issue!), Advocacy statements the day after news is announced, not a week later. A Jewish Genetics program just getting underway and a “Jews from Arab Lands” program in a box – Want to bring it to your chapter? Also Hadassah Brandeis and Hadassah Online will host a live book and author event. Watch for time and date.
We have a target of capturing 30,000 email addresses nationally so if you know of someone who should be on this list, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a Hadassah Facebook group you can join. Hadassah is definitely in the 21stCentury!
And our great west coast idea of Chai Society ($360 annual gift) has gone National. Read all about it below in It Takes a Village- At Least Seventy-Five Percent of One.
And finally, our PNW website (Hadassah.org/pnw) has been updated so you can find events in your area. And the National website, Hadassah.org, is also being revamped so it’s even easier to navigate.
So, lots happening in Hadassah. Will you join me in celebrating this amazing organization? Look forward to hearing from you –email@example.com.
PNW Region President
