Overview

Love for Israel is woven into the fabric of Hadassah. Today, Hadassah’s programs promote a deeper understanding and connection to Israel, while our advocacy efforts support Israel’s security, a future of peace in the Middle East and stronger US-Israel relations. We laid the groundwork for Israel’s health care system, and we have always taken on the challenge — and the joy — of connecting generations of young Jews to Israel. Hadassah also advocates for the rights of Jewish people around the world and fosters partnerships between Israel, Hadassah and the American Jewish community.

The Branch Podcast

These stories of everyday Jews and Arabs, who are laying the groundwork for peace one relationship at a time, will warm your heart and maybe even surprise you. Not usually covered in the news, The Branch showcases accounts of shared society — regular everyday people who are reaching out, breaking barriers and creating meaningful and important connections despite profound differences.

Zionist Education

Here is your opportunity to deepen your understanding and commitment to Israel. Hadassah offers a compelling video series in which engaging thought leaders discuss Zionism and share their unique perspectives. We invite you to watch these short videos at your convenience, or in a group facilitated by Hadassah leaders. The video speakers — scholars, activists and community leaders — will have you thinking in new ways about Israel and Zionism and what that means to you.
