Melissa Liverman

Melissa Liverman
Detroit, MI

Born in Montreal, Canada, Melissa Liverman moved from Philadelphia to West Bloomfield, MI in 2014 with her husband, Josh, and two sons, Noah and Julian. Since moving, she was looking to volunteer at an organization, and felt that Hadassah would be the perfect fit for her as it has always held a special place in her heart.

Her late grandmother, Fryderyka Fuchs-Hojda, was an active lifelong member of Hadassah, and Melissa has many fond memories of accompanying her to fundraisers and fashion shows each year. Hadassah was an integral part of Fryderyka’s life, and her chapter named “Leorah” was particularly inspiring to Melissa, as all of its members were Holocaust survivors.

Her association of Hadassah with her late grandmother and the wonderful things they do locally and at their hospitals in Israel, inspired Melissa to drop into their West Bloomfield office to inquire about volunteer opportunities. She feels it was Bashert because as much as she was looking for an organization to be a part of, Hadassah was in need of younger women to carry on its mission.

In the few months she has been volunteering, Melissa founded the “Leorah” chapter, which is named in memory of her grandmother and her fellow Holocaust survivors.

Melissa enjoys traveling, working out, and spending time with her family.
