Hadassah Happenings October 2014/5775

L’ Shana Tova! Many sweet blessings in the New Year! As I write this, High Holy Days are only a few days away and I am anxious and excited. Excited in all the preparations and hoping to not miss any details; and anxious for the solemnity of the holiday and the State of Israel and the world.Hadassah Hospital is in forefront of happenings in Israel and ready to do its part whatever may come.For the sweetness of the New Year help support its medical mission by helping us finish out the last little details of the Operating Rooms in the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower. Every little bit counts even if it is just a Shekel in the pushke, a simple greeting card or even buying tickets to “Dining in the Sukkah Under the Stars”.There are even “Choose Your Impact” selections that can go specifically to a program you find close to your heart.

Don’t forget to check out our upcoming events like our Major Fundraiser, “Dining in the Sukkah Under the Stars” October 12th.Held at Lizz Clubb’s House, there will be a spectacular Gourmet Feast using recipes from the Jerusalem Cookbook. On November 14th and 15th join us at “The Red Shoes” were we are holding A Shabbat Retreat for Women -Drinking From Our Wells of Inspiration with special guest Rabbi Yael Levy of Congregation Mishkan Shalomin Philadelphia.
