Message from the Chapter President
Passover is a celebration of the deliverance of Jews from slavery in Egypt. Each year we read from the Haggadah and relive the story, and with each tradition, feel closer to our history. As you dip the bitter herbs, eat the eggs in salt water and sip the wine, we return to our ancestors and experience, if only in symbolism, the struggles of those slaves.
It is our responsibility, our obligation, our commandment to assure freedom of belief and practice. It has been a struggle for hundreds of years, but at your Passover, reading from the Haggadah, you are doing just that. You are passing the wisdom to your children and grandchildren, and explaining to our friends the importance of our heritage and our pride in Judaism.
Release your inner Henrietta. Come on - Hadassah’s Second Century has begun!
What Does Tomorrow Look Like?
For Hadassah, it's a world of healthy people living in peace.
It's a Middle East made more secure by breakthroughs in medicine.
It's a Jerusalem that respects the past while embracing the best of the new.
For Hadassah Medical Organization, tomorrow is about putting a human face on the more advanced medical technologies.
It's About Healing
It's About Compassion
It's About Life
Will you join me and other women of the Lansing Chapter in making an annual commitment to Hadassah?
