Stretching from Washington state to Southern California, to the Gulf of Mexico up to the Canadian border — and including Alaska and Hawaii — Hadassah West encompasses fifteen states across five distinctive regions: Hadassah Greater Southwest, Hadassah Desert-Mountain, Hadassah Pacific Northwest, Hadassah Central Pacific Coast and Hadassah Southern California. While each region draws on their local communities to retain their unique strengths, they also partner together with the national organization.
We share a deep commitment to Hadassah's core missions and values. We are over 42,000 members strong with more than 65 chapters and 100 groups who cater to women of diverse backgrounds, ages, experiences and interests. Whatever your interest, you’ll find many ways to engage with us. Our volunteer leaders work alongside a team of professionals who provide support for events, activities, philanthropy and communications. Our chapters and groups 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!
