Welcome to the New York Region!


Spring Mitzvah Project


Remember the old days before Kindles & Nooks?

We all had those things called “Paperback Books.”

If you still have some collecting dust,

Get rid of them now… it’s a must.

You’ll be doing a Mitzvah, You’ll be gaining space,

And we will get them to a place

Where adults still enjoy the feel of paperback books,

And can’t afford those Kindles and Nooks…


I know I can count on our all members to make this a successful project. Our goal is to deliver at least 100 books by the end of June to the library at Temple Shaaray Tefila that has been set up for their Soup Kitchen guests.

Please drop them off at the NY Region Office on the 6th floor at 50 West 58th Street or leave them for me at 180 East End Ave.

I know this will be another successful Mitzvah Project because “giving” is a part of our Hadassah Psyche!!!

Thank you in advance,

Nancy Leavitt

NY Region Mitzvah Chair
