Message from the President
New Years 5774 Greetings from Sue Ritter, HVOS President
I am guilty as anyone who says "the Holidays are so early this year." However, if I am honest with myself, there is always a part of me that loves the start of a new year no matter how early or late it might be on the calendar. There is something exciting and energizing each Rosh Hashanah. It is a period of renewal and re-commitment of our faith and our values.
Hadassah continues to bring generations of women together who heal, nurture and accomplish ways to make our world a better place to live. All that we do in Israel is shared with the world. Our hospitals, schools and youth villages may not be here in our community, but all that we have done and continue to do benefits our families, friends and neighbors. Our impact heals and makes a difference everyday in the lives of more people than we can even imagine.
I want to thank all of you who not only give of your time but also give generously to Hadassah. What we do takes both time and money. I am proud and believe it is a privilege to not only be a Life Member of Hadassah but to serve as your Chapter President.
May this coming year be filled with happiness, health and Hadassah's continued impact in making our lives and this world a better place.
