KEEPERS OF THE GATE

"Keepers of the Gate," is a special group of action-oriented philanthropists who make annual donations to support Hadassah's work. Comprised of men and women leaders and visionaries from around America "Keepers" help change people's lives year after year…after year. Joining our annual giving program is easy. Start by choosing from the following annual giving levels: $1,000, $1,800, $2,500, $3,600 or more.

Upon joining, you will receive a delicately crafted sterling silver and 14K gold David's Harp pin designed by the prominent Israeli artist, Rachel Gera. Stones on the harp string will reflect your giving level. On your fifth anniversary as a Keeper, your name will be engraved on the magnificent Keepers of the Gate Wall at Kiryat Hadassah in Ein Kerem, Israel. For more information on Keepers of the Gate and Keepers of the Future, contact Keepers Chair Roberta at HumanRN@aol.com .
As a Keeper of the Gate, you may earmark gift funds to support the programs or services that best reflect your interests or passions. Among Keepers of the Gate gifting options are:

The Goldyne Savad Institute for Gene Therapy: Scientists here decode the mysteries of the human genome. They look for ways to repair and replace missing and defective genes to help prevent genetically transmitted diseases.

The Sharett Institute of Oncology: Sharett cancer researchers are developing new treatment for various cancer and cancer-related diseases, including breast and prostate cancers.

The Hadassah Center for Emergency Medicine: The recent terrorist violence in Israel has underscored how every second counts when delivering crucial emergency and trauma care. The Hadassah Center for Emergency Medicine at Ein Kerem, Jerusalem – a cutting-edge trauma and emergency treatment facility – is designed to help Israel meet this challenge. But these are just a few giving options. Keepers may direct annual gifts to any of Hadassah's important work.

PERPETUAL YAHRZEIT  

Hadassah has made it possible to have kaddish recited for your loved one at the beautiful Fannie and Maxwell Abbell Synagogue on the premises of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Karem, Jerusalem.

A one-time donation of $1000 ensures the designated Yahrzeit (memorial date) will be observed in perpetuity. Donations support Hadassah Medical Organization. In this way, donors can transform loss into life-affirming mitzvot benefiting countless people the world over. Each year, prior to the Yahrzeit date, you will receive a notice from Israel acknowledging the upcoming observance. On that date, your loved one's name will be memorialized during the afternoon service held at the Abbell Synagogue.

In addition, a stunning Hadassah Yahrzeit certificate featuring a replica of a Chagall window will be issued to the individual establishing the memorial. What better way to pay your respect to your loved ones than to give a life-affirming gift in their memory? For more information contact Chevra Perpetual Yarzeit in Israel Chair Marlene at marherb@bellsouth.net.

Your gift to Hadassah Heroines this year will provide therapeutic educational and social services for youth at risk throughout Israel.
Hadassah-supported Youth Aliyah/Children at Risk sets Israel's disadvantaged children on the path to a successful future. Since 1934, over 300,000 young people from 80 lands have graduated from Youth Aliyah. Young immigrants and "at-risk" native Israelis, many of whom are victims of abuse, receive counseling, education, supportive services in Youth Aliyah day centers, and youth villages. From Hebrew language lessons and classes on Jewish heritage to athletic opportunities and art programs, Youth Aliyah students are given the extra help and attention they need to become productive members of Israeli society.
