Message from the
Region President

Welcome to Hadassah Southern California! I am proud to represent an organization that gives women the opportunity to make a difference in the world. Because of Hadassah, lives are saved every day. We inspire passion and empower women to use their voices to be policy changemakers on our priorities that include health issues important to women and children, building a strong US-Israel relationship and fighting antisemitism.
