Our Groups




The Boston Chapter is comprised of multiple groups categorized according to age and/or special interests. All group events, book clubs, and fundraisers are open to all Hadassah members, who are also welcome to join multiple groups.


Meira is our youngest group of women in their mid 20’s to 30’s. They come together to socialize and support Hadassah. This group is self-directed and self-led with activities happening throughout the greater Boston area.
