Message from the
Region President

Welcome to Hadassah Chicago-North Shore! When I joined Hadassah at the age of 26, I never imagined that I’d be writing to you today as President of Hadassah Chicago-North Shore. If you are not already a member, I encourage you to join us. Our 11,000 Hadassah members and male Associates represent every age and stage of life. We welcome both Jews and non-Jews of all backgrounds who support the mission of Hadassah.
