Marriage was in the air at the Hadassah Donor Event, sponsored by Israel Bonds on June 1, 2014, at the Columbus Museum of Art. Docents Joy Benatar and Robert Shapiro led guests on a tour of the Splendid Art of Matrimony ketubah exhibit. Following the tour, Columbus Hadassah Co-president Rachel Belenker welcomed guests and remarked on the sixty-year “marriage” of Hadassah and Israel Bonds that supports the commitment of both organizations to the strength and security of Israel. She quoted former Israel Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz: “The country has been transformed by Israel Bonds and is a source of pride not only for Israelis but for friends and supporters the world over.” For details and to see photos of the Donor Event, click here.
