Hadassah Brooklyn Region's Board

Hadassah Brooklyn Region began in 1921.  At its strongest period in time, we boasted more than 20,000 members.

We provide programs of interest all over the borough of Brooklyn, at all times of the day and evening, every day of the week, every month of the year.  We are comprised of all denominations of Jewish observance.  We observe the laws of kashrut and respect Shabbat.
