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 where making a difference is very hard to do on your own. Because of Hadassah, lives are saved every day. We are committed to making a difference in our local community, the US and in Israel, and I invite you to join us.
