Message from the Southeastern Region/Greater Atlanta Chapter President

Dear Hadassah Members:

Our Hadassah Greater Atlanta Chapter is a large chapter of over 3,300 members. The chapter is divided into five groups; four of the groups are divided by geographic locations, and the fifth group is made up of Allied Health Professionals from around the Greater Atlanta area.

Our chapter offers several popular annual programs, including "Best Strokes," which raises funds for breast and ovarian cancers; "Chesed Event," which honors high school seniors for their academic excellence and their commitment to service in the Jewish community; and our "Chai Tea," which recognizes our annual givers who are Keepers of the Gate and members of our Chai Society donors. We also provide leadership training programs for our officers and board members.

Our four geographic-based groups are Etz Aviv, Ketura, Metulla and Mount Scopus. They each offer informative and enjoyable programs such as book clubs, meet the author events, speakers on a variety of topics, cooking demonstrations and social gatherings in members’ homes and restaurants. The Allied Health Professionals group hosts speakers on important health topics as well as programs highlighting new research and treatments from Hadassah's hospitals in Israel.

We recently released our beautiful, new cookbook. It is a wonderful compilation of tried-and-true recipes, new and healthy recipes, and traditional recipes personally provided by many of our Atlanta Hadassah sisters.

We also offer many virtual programs on Zoom, featuring speakers from Hadassah's hospitals and from our national and regional offices. We try to educate, excite and motivate our members in many ways. Our president sends a weekly Shabbat message and also holiday messages to keep in touch, share upcoming programs and send personal greetings for good health.

We hope you will become a part of our Hadassah Greater Atlanta Chapter.

Marci Abrams-Feinstein, Chapter President
