Message from the
Region President

Hadassah has a long and important history in Detroit. The catalyst for starting our first chapter was Henrietta Szold, the founder of Hadassah, who visited Detroit in 1917. Today our growing area helps to advance medical research at Hadassah’s hospitals, support Youth Aliyah, promote Zionism, and empower women in the US.
