I have just returned from Hadassah’s Centennial Convention in Israel and it was truly a once in a lifetime event! We did so many things and heard so many wonderful speakers; it’s hard to know where to begin to describe it to you. I guess that I need to start with the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower. Words can hardly do it justice. It is a magnificent structure that we can all be extremely proud of. It is definitely the crown jewel of our Hadassah buildings. I can’t wait for all of you to see it. Hopefully many of you will be able to visit Israel in the near future and see it for yourselves.
