The Educators Council is a free, add-on benefit available to all Hadassah members who are current or former educators in any environment or role. The council is specifically aimed at fostering community among our many valued educators, so that they can bring their expertise to supporting one another while contributing to Hadassah's vital work of healing our world together.

Hadassah has a rich history in education and developing educators throughout the decades. View our education timeline here.

For educators who are not yet members, this is an excellent way to join Hadassah in a meaningful way. Contact us to learn more about this council.

Help At-Risk Children
in Israel

As educators, our Council is particularly involved with supporting Hadassah's Youth Aliyah villages in Israel, where at-risk children receive the support they need to become productive and happy members of Israeli society. Join us now in funds for the “Joy of Judaism” initiative, which supports Mother/Daughter Shabbaton to heal familial relationships and our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Preparation Programs.
