Welcome to the Norfolk/Virginia Beach Chapter website!
Dear Hadassah Members,
See Featured Pages below for the November issue of "Hadassah Happenings". We hope you will join us at our upcoming programs and events!
As our Centennial Year Celebration is winding down, there is a short time to make that special someone a life member of Hadassah for $212. This offer will only be around until December 31, and then Life Membership will be $360. What a great Chanukah present!
Our new Sara Wetsman Davidson Tower in Jerusalem was dedicated during our Convention last month and below in Featured Pages is our National President, Marci Natan's account of Hadassah's extraordinary Centennial Convention.
Many members have expressed the desire to help those in need after Hurricane Sandy. Below is Hadassah's response from Marci Natan explaining how you can make a donation.
- Hadassah Foundation Celebrates Graduation of Training for Orthodox Women
- Hadassah Foundation Director Rabbi Ellen Flax gave out the graduation certificates to the thirteen women who graduated from the joint training program for Haredi Early Childhood Education Counselors at the Hebrew University.
- Support Fair Pay for Women & Families
- Women make 77 cents to a man’s dollar and a single mother of two working full-time at minimum-wage is living nearly $4,000 below the federal poverty line. America’s women and families are worth more and they deserve better!
- As Knesset Weighs Official Celebration of Aliyah, One Olah Reflects on Emigration
- As the Knesset weighs a bill to recognize a day to celebrate making aliyah, one emigrant from Connecticut reflects on the journey that brought her to make aliyah.
- Building Bridges to Peace through Medicine
- The rationale for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel is based on generalities—many of them uninformed—about how different populations live, work, study, and co-exist in the region.
