Welcome to the Meira Chapter!
To everyone who joined us on October 24, 2011 for our Breast Cancer Awareness Gala!
Meira women are fun and fabulous!
This group of 20 and 30-somethings come from diverse backgrounds, from all across the US and Canada. Some are Young Judaea alums, others are from multi-generational Hadassah families - but ladies, this isn't your grandmother's Hadassah!
Meeting mostly on weeknights or the occasional weekend, these women get together for events as varied as our membership; pottery, painting, fashion shows, wealth management advising and a Tu B'shvat Seder to name just a few.
So… was Hadassah a household name?
If so, Meira is the chapter for you!
The Meira Chapter of Hadassah has social, community service and cultural/religious events which are geared to young women in the New York City area. The Chapter seeks to connect members to Hadassah and to each other.
