#Hadassah18

#Hadassah18

American Zionist women’s voices have played a critical role since Hamas’ attacks and atrocities on October 7, advocating for Israel, building understanding and speaking out against hate and falsehoods aimed at Israel and Jews.

Like Israel today, Zionism embraces many viewpoints, identities and expressions. And so does Hadassah's 2024 list of 18 American Zionist Women You Should Know.

From an Emmy Award-winning actress to our own Hadassah superstars, we love our list for its diversity — and because each of the women is a force to be reckoned with. Here, you’ll find a Scottish pop culture journalist turned Israeli advocate, a goat-herding social media influencer and an LGBTQ+ progressive Zionist, alongside a constitutional scholar with a degree in neuroscience from Kansas City, MO, a Kiev-born student activist in Minnesota building a movement to fight antisemitism, and a Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem midwife known for speaking out for women’s health and Israel.

At Hadassah, we’ve been voicing our values as American Zionist women since before the creation of the state of Israel. We believe that our vision and values — and those of likeminded women in the US and around the globe — can help shape the future of Zionism and Israel. And that’s just what’s happening.

Toby Klein — LGBTQ+ Progressive Zionist

Toby Klein — LGBTQ+ Progressive Zionist

Toby (she/her), a proud LGBTQ+ progressive Zionist, is a program manager at A Wider Bridge, building bridges between the North American and Israeli LGBTQ communities, primarily through virtual programming and in-person trips to Israel.

In the wake of October 7, LGBTQphobia and antisemitism skyrocketed, leaving both personal and professional communities shattered, scattered and isolated. With an alarming lack of community, especially among progressive LGBTQ Zionists, Toby was proud to take a group of 15 LGBTQ leaders to Israel in January to witness the aftermath of October 7 and volunteer alongside LGBTQ Israelis.

She recently completed her PhD in public policy with a specialization in social justice from the University of Arkansas. Toby continues to hope for and work toward a day when all LGBTQ Zionists are safe and able to be their full authentic selves in all spaces.

Luisa Narins — Pro-Israel Advocate

Luisa Narins — Pro-Israel Advocate

Luisa Narins is a volunteer co-coordinator in Hadassah's Engagement Division. She first traveled to Israel with Hadassah as part of the Face2Face Young Women’s Mission. It quickly became apparent to her why Israel needed to be a Jewish nation, not while visiting the Kotel or Yad Vashem but rather walking through the Machane Yehuda market before Shabbat; the smell of fresh baked challah, the open casks of colorful spices and people rushing to finish their shopping and wishing each other Shabbat Shalom all inspired Luisa.

Living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Luisa found a community where it was “normal” to be Jewish, where she didn’t have to explain to anyone why she wanted to take off early on Friday. This inclusive atmosphere illustrated to her why Israel needed to be a free, democratic Jewish State, one that respected and acknowledged other cultures, ethnicities and religions but ultimately protected Judaism in all its forms. She views Israel as a home that will welcome all Jews and give them shelter any time they need it.
