Founded in 1916, Hadassah Greater Atlanta (HGA), the metro Atlanta chapter of Hadassah, has existed for more than 100 years! Our chapter is comprised of over 3,000 members and male Associates who join together to raise funds in support of Hadassah’s vital work in Israel and the US. We help advance women’s health and family well-being, educate ourselves and others about issues we care about and have fun together.
Our members are actively involved in various groups, which are organized by location, age, meeting time (day or evening) and profession. As a chapter, we proudly sponsor several community-wide projects, programs and study groups designed to enrich your body, mind, heart and soul.
Our Hadassah Greater Atlanta Chapter is a large chapter of over 3,300 members. The chapter is divided into five groups; four of the groups are divided by geographic locations, and the fifth group is made up of Allied Health Professionals from around the Greater Atlanta area. We hope you will become a part of our Hadassah Greater Atlanta Chapter.
The Hadassah Associates are valued male allies, who in partnership with Hadassah women, help raise funds to support Hadassah's incredible work. Established in 1966, they are now 26,000 strong nationally. Although the 130+ Greater Atlanta Hadassah Associates do not have a formalized group, they hold periodic special events and are actively involved within various Hadassah groups.
Our young women's group hosts programs specifically geared towards our younger members (under 45 years old). To learn more about these exciting programs, visit and like our Hadassah Atlanta Young Women’s Facebook page.
