Nadine Goodban Writes of Her Convention Experience


Dear Hadassah Friends -- I am just returning from 3 full days of a Hadassah Convention in ...LAS VEGAS ...., yes, in middle of July. Believe me, dry 105 heat is very bearable outside.

But who had time to step outside when we were kept fascinated and eager-to-learn by so many educational, emotional and awe-inspiring presenters, empowering us to lead advocacy campaigns in our communities, or broaden our understanding of Zionism, or how to focus on global empowerment of women highlighting the work of Hadassah Foundation and the United Nations.

T'was really fun to see the charming Randi Zuckerberg, -Harvard grad, Founder-CEO of Zuckerberg Media. Her latest book: "Dot Complicated" was selling like hot croissants (!). She explained how technology has changed virtually every part of our lives, how we interact with friends and family, how we raise our childlren, how we announce major life news, how we find love, or how we manage our careers.

With very little appeal, Hadassah raised millions within our large hotel quarters, and donations are pouring in as we speak, for obvious reasons. Our newly completed state-of-the-art hospitalis functioning now in its emergency trauma center, even treating Palestinians, as usual. But we constantly need more specialized medical personnel, more materials, etc... which all come at a high price.

INSPIRE - IMAGINE - IGNITE, was the theme of our Convention, came through with high flying colors to do just that. (...was able to enroll a new Associate...)

Fabulous 3 days - very inspiring and engaging. First-class speakers, high caliber moderators, superb organization throughout.

850 powerful women and 40 men. VERY PROUD TO BE A LIFE MEMBER OF HADASSAH!
