Who We Are

Hadassah Midwest is comprised of Hadassah Chicago-North Shore, Hadassah Great Plains, Hadassah Greater Detroit and Hadassah Upper Midwest regions. That’s a broad range of territory, with chapters across 15 states. Each region and chapter have their own unique character, membership and spirit. But we also work together, joining in our collective mission to further 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 lives in Israel, the United States and around the world. We are proud to be "The Power of Women Who DO." Join us!
