Message from the President
Welcome to the Chapel Hill-Durham Chapter! We are a vibrant, diversified Hadassah chapter made up of nearly 350 members representing women from all ages, backgrounds, and interests. We are mothers, daughters, and grandmothers, doctors, attorneys, nurses, teachers, social workers, professionals, students, and retirees. Whether we work outside or at home we share a common goal.
For 97 years Hadassah has been helping women enrich our lives by giving to others, expanding our intellectual and spiritual potential and exploring our traditions. We remain the largest women's organization in the USA with representation in every congressional district. Hadassah is a first responder and at the forefront of the most compelling issues facing Israel and the world -- confronting disease, easing personal suffering, providing education and ensuring Jewish continuity. Thanks to our fundraising efforts, Hadassah has sent nearly 5 billion dollars to Israel to fund our projects. Life is better because of Hadassah.
Most of us live in Chapel Hill or Durham. Each year we strive to provide innovative programs including women’s health speakers, the arts, and educational topics. Meetings include pot luck meals, which offer opportunities to meet Jewish women from our community.
Please join us at one of our many programs during the year. Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events for more details about all of our events during 2013. All are welcome, friends and relatives, members and prospective members alike!
