KETURA HADASSAH INSTALLS NEW BOARD: On the evening of December 5, 2013 members and guests of the Greater Atlanta Hadassah’s Ketura Group convened at the Mirage Restaurant to celebrate the installation of 2014 officers. Sheila Dalmat, a former Ketura president and group advisor, performed the installation of the new board headed by Annie Kohut, president, in a candle-lighting ceremony. Other highlights of the evening included a framed certificate and gifts from the board presented by Annie Kohut to Sybil Ginsburg, outgoing co-president, and recognition of Ketura’s newest Keepers of the Gate, a special Hadassah giving designation.
