GWAC e-news
Here it is September, the start of another Jewish New Year and the unofficial start of the Hadassah year for some of our groups. It has been an eventful summer what with the National Convention in July and the latest fighting between Israel and the Palestinians. As you know Hadassah launched a Readiness Campaign and I am happy to report many of you donated generously to it. The Hadassah Medical Organization needs our help more than ever. Most especially needed is to complete the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. While the Tower is completed, it is not fully furnished. Most needed is surgical equipment and understandably that is very expensive. GWAC will be hosting a telethon this coming Sunday, the 14th to help raise funds for the Tower. Once it is fully equipped the Tower will be fully functional and will be a source of much needed income for HMO. I ask you to donate generously if you are called and if you are the caller, thank you very much for participating in this very meaningful activity.

Finally I would like to wish all of you a very sweet and happy New Year from my family to yours.
