Who We Are

Meet Hadassah Mountain Southwest — the best the south, desert and mountains can offer. Our geographic area covers eight states stretching from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention the glittering city of Las Vegas, NV and the southern charm of Shreveport, LA. Together, they make up our Hadassah Desert-Mountain and Hadassah Greater Southwest regions. Each region retains the unique qualities of its own communities, from mountain ski towns to unique desert enclaves.

We share a deep commitment to Hadassah's core missions and values. We are 16,000 members strong with 40 chapters that cater to women of diverse backgrounds, ages and interests. Our volunteer leaders work alongside a team of professionals who provide support for events, activities, philanthropy and communications. Our chapters are known for their independent and adventuresome spirit, but we all work together as a team to move mountains supporting Hadassah’s vital work in Israel and around the world. Join us!
