Overview

Hadassah Central Pacific Coast is where Northern California women have fun and make friends, while demonstrating our pride and passion for Hadassah. Join us and find your place here!

Our region spans from the wine country in Northern California down south 150 miles through San Francisco and Silicon Valley to the Monterey Peninsula. From the Pacific Ocean, we head east 250 miles through the East Bay, Sacramento and Reno, Nevada. Our 14 chapters have over 7,000 members, including young women’s groups. We come together in camaraderie to support Hadassah’s lifesaving work in Israel, the US and the world through our many local programs and Israel trips. We join together to advocate and educate about issues we care about in Sacramento legislators’ offices and with US legislators, fighting for issues affecting women, families and the Jewish people. Join us today!

Message from the
Region President

Welcome to Hadassah Central Pacific Coast! We are a diverse group of women living around the San Francisco Bay in Northern California who enjoy coming together with like-minded women. I met many of my friends through Hadassah, and I invite you to meet new best friends in our local chapters or our young women’s groups near you.
