The Montana Chapter is a member of the Hadassah Desert Region. It is a special organization as it is one of only two Hadassah chapters to cover an entire state. The members of Montana Hadassah organize local book clubs and fund raising events. But we also come together as a single group each year to plan activities, share our interests and knowhow, and get to know one another. Although the physical distances between us is large, the over 100 members share their enthusiasm for the Hadassah mission and strive to create a sense of Jewish community.
