LEGACY IN ACTION - Knowledge
Integrating Membership and Fundraising
Knowledge is power. Knowledge is influence. And most importantly, knowledge is responsibility. Think about how you would feel knowing something was destined to happen and that you had the potential to change the outcome in a positive way. Wouldn't you feel responsible to do whatever was in your power to make a change?
Well that is just the kind of responsibility which knowledge brings with it. On a daily basis we are faced with decisions to make which challenge our morals and values. We meet these challenges head on armed with the knowledge to make an informed choice. This is our responsibility. Just as, on a more global scale, although we are not in direct contact with it, we are knowledgeable about conditions and situations which exist in Israel on a level which is less than acceptable. It is our responsibility to impart a change through sharing knowledge, giving time, experience and donations. It is our impact on the world and on tikkun olam, repairing this world.
We alone can make this change.
Its Not Just What You Know, Its Who You Know
Knowledge is not just about what you know but also who you know. Encourage members to educate others about Hadassah and challenge each member to bring in at least one new member. Members sharing their experiences or educating others about Israel are our best opportunity to outreach to new members.
In the words of Anne Frank, "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single minute before starting to improve the world."
