Our Chapter

The Dallas Chapter of Hadassah was founded in 1918. By 1924, there were 30 members. And now, our Chapter is a diverse group of over 2,000 women of all ages and stages in life. Additionally, there are men who are Associate Members of the Chapter.

Dallas Hadassah is part of the Greater Southwest Region, which spans three states, but our hearts are close because together we all make Hadassah and our projects a priority in our lives. See our contact page for contact options.
