Charlottesville Chapter Board

The present Charlottesville Chapter was formed in 1978 as part of the Northern Seaboard Region of Hadassah. A smaller chapter, begun in the 1940’s, had been disbanded in the 1960’s. The new chapter was chartered with 30 women, but quickly grew to 80 members in its first year, filling the needs of a small but growing Jewish community. At the beginning of the 1982-83 year, Charlottesville was reassigned to the Southern Seaboard Region. On June 1, 2005 we were merged with Lynchburg Chapter. Our membership total (as of June 30, 2010) is 379.
