Message from the Suffolk Region/ Chapter President

Welcome to Hadassah Suffolk, located on Long Island, NY, and home to seven chapters and over 3,000 members. Although small in geographic size, we are a strong, energetic and empowered region! We offer many opportunities to learn, lead, and make a difference in our community, the US, Israel and in the world.

We support Hadassah’s mission to strengthen our connection to Israel, bringing healing and justice to the world. As a volunteer organization that inspires a passion for the land and people of Israel, we enhance the health of people globally by supporting the gold standard of medical care and cutting-edge research at Hadassah’s hospitals in Jerusalem. Hadassah empowers its members and supporters through opportunities for personal growth, education, advocacy and Jewish continuity. 

When you join us at chapter and regional activities, you’ll have the opportunity to:  

learn about the amazing advances in medical research and hands-on patient care at our two hospitals in Jerusalem; speak up and speak out, advocating for women’s health equity, ensuring reproductive rights, combating antisemitism and strengthening US-Israel relations; support Hadassah’s youth villages in Israel for at-risk youth; and meet an amazing array of supportive, empowered, passionate women!

To keep you regularly informed about our many available opportunities, you’ll be emailed a monthly calendar of events. You’ll also receive Soundings, Hadassah Suffolk’s biannual bulletin, via mail as well as a print copy of the award-winning Hadassah Magazine every other month. 

I encourage you to visit our Hadassah Suffolk Facebook page for the latest programs and events. 

We welcome new faces, new talent, new leaders and new ideas! What better time than now to step forward and show that you, along with other Hadassah women, have the power to heal our world, to take action and to make an impact. Please contact our office at 973-241-1500 so we can find the right chapter for you. We would love to include you in the Hadassah Suffolk family. Join us today! 

With warm Hadassah hugs, 

JoAnne Shapiro, Region President
