Take Action to Expand Holocaust and Anti-Hate Education

Yesterday, February 4, the Never Again Education Act was reintroduced at an official press conference in New York City. Hadassah CEO/ Executive Director Janice Weinman gave remarks expressing Hadassah's unwavering commitment to ensure the passage of this vital legislation. Urge your representatives to cosponsor and support the Never Again Education Act!


Congratulations advocates! Thanks to your messages to Congress and Hadassah's work behind the scenes, we helped secure the long-awaited appointment of a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism. Read today's announcement welcoming Special Envoy Elan Carr.

Urge Your Representatives to Stand for Israel

Today, the Senate passed the Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act of 2019 (S.1). The bill includes two pieces of legislation we currently support: The Combating BDS Act and the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act. We need your help to get this legislation signed into law: act now by urging your Representatives to support this crucial bill!


Plan a Day in the District

With the 116th Congress now in session, it's time to plan your first Day in the District meeting of 2019! The next congressional recess is scheduled for President's Week (February 18-22, 2019). Educate your elected officials about Hadassah's legislative priorities including combating anti-Semitism, supporting a robust US-Israel relationship, and advancing women's health. We have updated talking points and resources and, as always, our advocacy team is available to support you every step of the way. Email advocacy@hadassah.org with any questions or requests.
