Hadassah has introduced a new Chai Society annual giving level of $180 (L.E.A.'s current level of $360 is now designated as Silver Chai Society). If you would like to make a generous contribution to Hadassah on an annual basis, as long as you are able, it is very easy to do. Just on online to Hadassah.org, click on "donations", then click on "annual giving." You may then choose the level that you are comfortable with and provide a credit card to give annually or monthly. For only $15/month, the equivalent of one lunch out with a friend, you can be an annual Chai Society donor to this amazing organization. Be sure to get your Hadassah #, look at your recent magazine, or just put "L.E.A" Chapter in that space.

Ms. Shuman, who was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer many years ago, credits cannabis with bringing her back from the brink of death.
