Message from the Region President


Welcome to the Upper Midwest Region Hadassah website!

We are so excited that you can get to know our Region online.

We are over 4,000 members and Associates strong in Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, and nationally we are over 300,000 members and Associates.


As we begin the new year of 2013, it is a good time to look at the many faces of Hadassah: a movement and a philosophy faced with many of the same choices and implementation processes as any corporate or governmental institution.


The chief strength needed for organizational stability is flexibility; the ability to bend, but not to break. Choices need to be made with intelligence and intellectual vigor – not out of fear. Inherent in choice is change, but positive change where ability to recover from setbacks and recover swiftly is inherent to the process. The key is resilience.


We recognize that in order to succeed, the first order of the day is to educate and re-educate ourselves, our membership, and those with whom we deal, not the least those in Congress and those in our state and municipal governments. 


The thrust for us is integration, not compartmentalization; anticipatory actions rather than reaction, as well as a common long range strategy.


To each and every one of you, a good new year.




Bea Johnson
Hadassah, Upper Midwest Region President
