Who We Are

Stretching from the lush forests of the northern tip of Washington state to the beaches of Southern California — and including Alaska and Hawaii — Hadassah West Coast encompasses seven states across three distinctive regions: Hadassah Pacific Northwest, Hadassah Central Pacific Coast and Hadassah Southern California. While each region draws on their local populations to retain their unique strengths, they also partner together and with the national organization.   

We are over 25,400 members strong with more than 25 chapters and 86 groups who cater to women of diverse backgrounds, ages, experiences and interests. Whatever your interest, you’ll find many ways to engage with us. A committed team of staff professionals are on hand to work with our devoted local volunteer leaders, guaranteeing that our events, meetings, programs and activities shine.
