"Keepers of the Gate," is a special group of action-oriented philanthropists who make annual donations to support Hadassah's work. Comprised of men and women leaders and visionaries from around America "Keepers" help change people's lives year after year…after year. Joining our annual giving program is easy.

As a Keeper of the Gate, you may earmark gift funds to support the programs or services that best reflect your interests or passions. Among Keepers of the Gate gifting options are:
The Goldyne Savad Institute for Gene Therapy: Scientists here decode the mysteries of the human genome. They look for ways to repair and replace missing and defective genes to help prevent genetically transmitted diseases.
The Sharett Institute of Oncology: Sharett cancer researchers are developing new treatment for various cancer and cancer-related diseases, including breast and prostate cancers.
The Hadassah Center for Emergency Medicine: The recent terrorist violence in Israel has underscored how every second counts when delivering crucial emergency and trauma care. The Hadassah Center for Emergency Medicine at Ein Kerem, Jerusalem – a cutting-edge trauma and emergency treatment facility – is designed to help Israel meet this challenge. But these are just a few giving options. Keepers may direct annual gifts to any of Hadassah's important work.

Hadassah has made it possible to have kaddish recited for your loved one at the beautiful Fannie and Maxwell Abbell Synagogue on the premises of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Karem, Jerusalem.
A one-time donation of $1000 ensures the designated Yahrzeit (memorial date) will be observed in perpetuity. Donations support Hadassah Medical Organization. In this way, donors can transform loss into life-affirming mitzvot benefiting countless people the world over. Each year, prior to the Yahrzeit date, you will receive a notice from Israel acknowledging the upcoming observance. On that date, your loved one’s name will be memorialized during the afternoon service held at the Abbell Synagogue.
In addition, a stunning Hadassah Yahrzeit certificate featuring a replica of a Chagall window will be issued to the individual establishing the memorial. What better way to pay your respect to your loved ones than to give a life-affirming gift in their memory? For more information contact the the office at 301.585.772
