I hope that all of you have had a wonderful holiday season, perhaps enjoying being with family and friends. It’s a great way to start the Jewish New Year.

Now that fall is here, there are many upcoming events to entice you to participate with Hadassah. Please see all of them below and come to as many as you can. There is no charge for many of these events so hopefully you will consider becoming an annual donor (at a level comfortable for you), to help support our worthwhile organization.
