Message from the President
Greetings to all my Hadassah friends,
It is a great honor to represent the Cincinnati Chapter of Hadassah for the 2014-2016 term.
I would like to commend Bonnie Ullner on an extraordinary job she took on two years ago. She accepted this position in order to give back because of unfortunate circumstances that happened to her then teenage daughter while in Israel. Hadassah saved her daughter's life, and she is doing well. You will be a hard act to follow.
I am excited to work with the previous board as well as with some new members on the board to bring new eyes to our mission.
We began the year with a wonderful Opening Meeting/Installation Dinner chaired by Ali Bernstein, Jennie Juran, Tracy Levine, Renee Sandler & Carol Ann Schwartz. Our 3 young members (Pilar Samuel, LeeAnne Galioto, and Beth Kotzin) who enjoyed three inspiring days at Hadassah Convention this year in Las Vegas, enlightened us on their experiences and what they came away with, was full of enthusiasm. Along with an incredible collection of food donations for the JFS food pantry.
Our educational Coffee Talks begin on October 13th with many varied topics presented each month.
The annual Leading Gifts Donor event for members who have donated or pledged $360 or more annually, will be held on October 29that a home of one of our new Hadassah Life members. Dr. Michal Lotem from Israel will be the guest speaker. This year we are including our CHAI members (those who donate $180 annually). I hope that many of you will be able to join us for this outstanding evening.
Like Henrietta Szold, anyone who started with a big dream in a small room, to IMAGINE the future, IGNITE Hadassah and INSPIRE each other.
Our fund raising chairs are working on some fun events for the year ahead. Watch our Events page for more details soon.
If you have not been involved before, here are just a few things we have fun doing here in Cincinnati: Book Groups, Movie Mavens, Mah Jongg, Lunch Bunch, Coffee Talks. We have Hadassah Certificates of all denominations, JNF Certificates, Kroger Cards, Panera Cards, Hadassah greeting cards, Macy’s Cards, and Vasu vases from Israel.
