Overview

Welcome to Hadassah Southern New England, home to 13 chapters and almost 7,000 members. Our region spans from the beaches of Cape Cod and Rhode Island to the rural fields of the boroughs, Springfield and everywhere in between. Our seasons may change, but we can always count on having generations of strong and powerful women as our members. We are a fun, engaged community from diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences who love being together to further Hadassah’s lifesaving work in the US, Israel and around the world, as well as empowering each other and women everywhere. We are a vibrant and fun region of Women Who Do! We invite you to join us. Together, we can heal our world!

Message from the
Region President

Hadassah Southern New England is all about connection: Connecting with women who make things happen. Whether we're fighting for funding for Holocaust and anti-hate education in schools, advancing groundbreaking medical research or setting a young person on a path to success — our global impact brings healing to the world!
