Message from the President
I’m privileged to be writing this message to you in a year that has special meaning for all of us who love Hadassah. 2012 is our Centennial Anniversary and we are celebrating a century of healing, educating, strengthening and building the Jewish community of tomorrow, and keeping Israel and her people strong.
It’s a privilege for all of us to be members of Hadassah at this time in history. From 1912, when we sent two nurses to Palestine, to our current construction project, the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in 2012, the health care system of modern Israel has been shaped by Hadassah.
At our Centennial Celebration in October, we will formally dedicate the Tower, Hadassah’s most ambitious undertaking ever, and our gift to the Jewish people of Israel.
Although the shell of the building is complete, the Tower is in need of furnishings and equipment and I urge you all to participate at whatever level you are able. Imagine your family’s pride when visiting Jerusalem, seeing the magnificent hospital tower and knowing that you played a part in building the dream.
Best Wishes to all the members and friends of the Florida Central Region for a successful 2012 year. With your help, our region can have the best year ever. Be engaged! Be empowered! And be energized! Thank you for all that you do for Hadassah.
