Earlier this year, the Hadassah Foundation ran two contests—a video contest and an essay contest--in honor of our “Chai” Year of Grantmaking. Both contests—open only to high school students—asked them to address their aspirations as a young, Jewish, female leader in their community, and how they wanted to change or add to the world.
Our goal was to lift up the voices of the next generation of Jewish feminist leaders. We hope you will be inspired by our winners, and their vision for the future!
Our video winner, Tallulah Bark-Huss, from Chicago, IL, is now a freshman at Boston University. The Hadassah Foundation has arranged for her to have a one-on-one meeting via phone or video conference with Amanda Lipitz, a Tony Award-winning Broadway producer and documentary filmmaker.

Our essay contest winner, Amanda Powers, from Newton, MA, is now a freshman at Harvard University. The Hadassah Foundation has arranged for her to have a one-on-one meeting via phone or videoconference with Anita Diamant, author of “The Red Tent” and “The Boston Girl,” a New York Times’ bestseller.
