From our President

Lynn Furness

Dear Friends,

As your region president I will be emailing a monthly message to encourage you to participate in your local chapter and/or the region and of course to donate to Hadassah.

Central States Region will be having a Shabbaton and Conference in Beachwood, OH on September 13-15, held at Embassy Suites by Hilton Beachwood near Cleveland, 3775 Park East Drive, Beachwood, Ohio, 44122.

The hotel registration deadline is August 20. The conference sign up deadline is September 1.

There will be a discussion of the future of Central States on Sunday September 15. If you wish to contribute to the discussion, please attend the conference!

Invite friends and family to come with you and join us at the conference. It's going to be exciting with Marlene Post there and lots of good info from National Convention. We are also planning a tribute to Judy Saxe who will be relocating to Seattle shortly after the conference.

Thank you for being a member of Hadassah.
