Founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold, Hadassah remains as relevant today as it has for generations of committed Jewish women. Hadassah is an organization you will be proud to be a part of. Learn about Health issues through Hadassah. Hadassah Medical Organization in Israel is made up of the state-of-the art Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Kerem and the Hadassah University Hospital at Mount Scopus. Their staffs treat ALL patients, regardless of religion, nationality or political views. Have a voice here in the U.S. We advocate for gun control, promote reproductive choice, and conduct stemcell research. Are you interested in education, join us for our Book Club meetings, Joan Weiss Super Bowl Brunch, Study Groups, etc. Care about our Youth Aliyah program in Israel; join us in learning about youth at risk. How can you help? Help our youngsters gain a Jewish identity through our programming and workshops.
Hadassah is a great way to meet other like-minded women while helping to make a difference. You can connect with women around the corner, while making a difference around the world.
Hadassah women know how to be pro-active, how to build bridges while having fun. Please join us this year. Attend events and programs. Come to learn, question, get involved. You can make a difference in Hadassah.
