In an energetic room early Sunday evening, more than 150 women and men gathered at a special reception at AIPAC for Hadasash members and their friends and family.
In her welcoming remarks, Hadassah CEO/Executive Director Janice Weinman spoke of the "important, meaningful partnership" between "two such powerful organizations -- Hadassah and AIPAC."
Hadassah and AIPAC, she said, "share common values, common purpose and common processes to educate members of Congress on the importance of Israel security and the Israeli-American relationship." She then introduced Elliot Brandt, Managing Director for National Affairs at AIPAC. Brandt spoke, thanking Hadassah for all that we do.
National President Ellen Hershkin gave a warm welcome, sharing the moving story of a boy born with a heart defect who survived, part of a moving tribute to the legacy of the late Prime Minister Shimon Peres, z"l. As depicted in the video, screened earlier at the AIPAC conference, the baby survived, thanks to a collaboration between the Peres Peace Center and Hadassah Medical Organization. That, she says, is an example, of "the pride we feel." That's the power of Women Who DO.
