Welcome to the Southern New England Region of Hadassah

The Southern New England Regions geographically cover Cape Cod to Bellingham to Natick and out to Sudbury, Wayland Northborough and Westborough.

Within our chapters we have Rosh Hodesh (new moon) groups, book clubs, and other educational program covering topics about Zionism, women’s health care, legislative and political issues and any topic you might be able to imagine. Our members also have fun while creating precious friendships through connections with other Jewish women. You’ll find fashion shows, Mah Jongg tournaments, cooking series, and shopping boutiques.

We know that while we expand our knowledge and educate ourselves and have fun along the way that Hadassah’s mission requires funding. Therefore all our chapters focus on raising the necessary funds to keep Hadassah. The Women’s Zionist Organization of America powerful, proud and pumped! And then we work conscientiously for social change. Tikkun Olam – the Jewish imperative to heal the world, to leave this planet a little better than when we found it. When was the last time an organization offered you the chance to heal some of the world’s ills and in the process be part of a community of women to make your own life more meaningful? This is today’s Hadassah.
