Who We Are

Capitalizing on the large city centers that grace our densely populated geographic area, Hadassah Metro covers eight regions with over 100 chapters stretching across the New York, Connecticut and the Northern New Jersey tristate area. Each region retains unique qualities of their own communities, while partnering together and with the national organization, to foster connections and maximize our collective power. Our 48,600 members are committed to furthering the life-changing and lifesaving work of Hadassah, including medical care and research, women’s empowerment, education, advocacy, Jewish identity, youth development and philanthropy. 

Our work impacts the people of Israel, the United States and around the world. We are proud to be “The Power of Women Who DO.” Please join us.
