Hospitals and Research

Advancing Health Care & Medicine

Every day, Hadassah brings healing to the people who need it most.

Our chapters host health and wellness events in hundreds of communities around the United States, giving individuals tools to live longer, healthier lives. Hadassah’s hospitals in Israel bring care to a million patients a year, and advance cutting-edge research and treatments, including against COVID-19. And our advocates work to expand access to health care in the US and stronger US-Israel medical partnerships.

Connecting to Israel & Zionism

Hadassah is the address for women’s empowerment and for the empowerment of Zionist women.
— US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism Elan Carr 

At Hadassah, Israel is in our DNA. Our US programs advance a deeper understanding and connection to Israel – for adults and young Jews. Our advocacy supports Israel’s security and a strong US-Israel relationship. And our hospitals and youth programs in Israel create a better future, regardless of religion, ethnicity or race.

Advocacy and empowerment

Advocating For Change

Hadassah believes that when we empower women, we can heal our world, together. As America’s largest Jewish women’s organization, we have members in every congressional district who – in conjunction with our national advocacy team and our Washington, DC, Government Relations Office – speak out on today’s most pressing issues, from advancing women’s health and economic security (including reproductive rights) to fighting antisemitism and hate, to speaking out for a strong, secure Israel.

Now is the time to create a strong community of women who want to make actionable change.

Tory Roman

Bringing Young Women Together

Tory Roman's passion for Hadassah was ignited in 2019 when she witnessed the vital work of Hadassah’s hospitals and Youth Aliyah villages during a Hadassah-Momentum trip to Israel. After returning home to Piedmont, CA, she realized that joining Hadassah wasn’t enough. She wanted to spread the sense of kesher (Hebrew for connection) — to Israel, to Hadassah, to like-minded women.

"Now is the time to create a strong community of women who want to make actionable change — and stand up for something wonderful happening in Israel," says Tory. In 2020, Tory founded Hadassah's Kesher OAK Chapter.

We aim to make life better for people in terrible pain when no one else will treat them.

Dr. Rawhi Hashem

Saving COVID-19 Patients Through Innovation

Senior intensivist and anesthesiologist Dr. Rawhi Hashem has been a key physician at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem for 26 years. During the pandemic, his innovative thinking resulted in a manual method of turning heavy COVID-19 patients, using mattresses and blankets, forgoing the need for electronic lifts.

"We aim to make life better for people in terrible pain when no one else will treat them. It’s easier to stand by and say there’s nothing we can do to help, but that’s not the Hadassah way," says Dr. Hashem.

I believe in Hadassah's mission of bringing healing and justice to the world.

Mindy Gensler

Meet a Hadassah New Jersey Advocate

Mindy Gensler, a lawyer who works for the New Jersey Department of Labor, didn’t want to stand by as she witnessed a national surge in antisemitism. So in 2012, she sought out an organization where she could make an impact as a volunteer. She found one in Hadassah and was proud to become a first-generation member.

Since then she’s taken on a leadership role as the advocacy chair of Hadassah Northern New Jersey. "It's important to make connections with the people who represent us, [so] they know we’re watching issues that are important to us," says Mindy.
