Our Groups

For more details on Greater Atlanta Hadassah groups,  call us at 678.443.2961 or email atlanta@hadassah.org

The Greater Atlanta Hadassah chapter of Hadassah is comprised of six groups. Although the chapter sponsors a number of projects – including the “Check It Out®” breast health awareness and education program for teens and the Marian F. Perling Chesed Student Awards –  most of our day-to-day activities are conducted on the group level.

Greater Atlanta Hadassah women, while members of the chapter, are actively involved in one or more of the groups around the metro area.  Our groups are roughly organized according to age and location, though all members are welcome at any chapter or group meeting. No matter your preference, at least one of Greater Atlanta Hadassah’s groups is right for you.
