Message from our President
Hello and welcome to Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh’s web site. I am Zandra Goldberg, President of Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh Chapter. I have been a member of Hadassah for 39 years, and belong to the Carmel group where I have previously served as their president. On the chapter level, I have chaired the nominating committee and have been a vice-president.
It is hard to believe that almost 100 years ago, Henrietta Szold and a group of young women founded Hadassah. They began all those years ago, what is now one of the world’s finest health care systems. In October, 2012, we will celebrate our Centennial by dedicating the new, magnificent Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower as an addition to Ein Kerem Hospital. We, in Pittsburgh, through many generous donations, have purchased a physician’s lounge on the seventh floor. There are still opportunities available for additional contributions to the Tower such as: medical equipment, pathway bricks, and synagogue seats. If you are interested in finding out more information, please call the Hadassah office, 412-421-8919.
Over 800 Hadassah members, including members from our Pittsburgh Chapter have already made plans to attend our Centennial Convention and Tower dedication in October, 2012. If you are interested in attending, please call Esther Schwartz, our local chair, at 412-371-9469.
On the local front, many of our groups have been preparing and serving dinners at Family House. (You can see all the pictures on the individual group web pages of this website) This has been a very rewarding community service experience. If you want to volunteer for one of our monthly dinners, or to donate funds for a dinner, please call the Hadassah office.
Please take a few minutes to share with pride our breakthroughs in medical research and making the world a better place on our National www.hadassah.org and Greater Pittsburgh www.hadassah.org/pittsburgh websites regularly to be a part of our ground breaking accomplishments.
We are an amazing organization thanks to all of our members – all of the people that make up Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh Chapter. Thank you for your time and dedication to Hadassah.
