President's Message - Fall 2012
Another year and a new beginning. We just came back from Helping Hands and were reenergized for what Hadassah is all about. Sitting in a room full of women who are dedicated to the mission of Hadassah and hearing their ideas and passion for the cause is a great way to start off the year. This year Hadassah has changed its mission statement which is as follows:
Hadassah , the Women’s Zionist Organization of America , is a volunteer organization that inspires a passion for and commitment to its partnership with the land and people of Israel It enhances the health of people worldwide through its support of medical care and research at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem. Hadassah empowers its members and supporters, as well as youth in Israel and America, through opportunities for personal growth, education, advocacy and Jewish continuity.
Each one of us should familiarize ourselves with this mission statement so that when someone asks us what Hadassah is all about we have a concrete answer. However this is not the only thing that Hadassah does for us. Hadassah gives us knowledge, it empowers us as leaders, it marks us as role models for others in the community, not to mention that it helps us forge everlasting friendships.
Our chapter goal is to raise money for Hadassah through fun, educational,and social ways that brings Jewish women in the area together. Come to our many events over the year so that you too can be inspired by the many facets of Hadassah.
