A Message From Our President, Greta Rothschild

Welcome to Hadassah Chicago-North Shore!

Dare to dream….and when you dream, dream big. It was 1912 when our founder Henrietta Szold proclaimed this renowned charge. Who knew 108 years later, these words would become reality and we would be operating two world-class medical centers in Israel and be a leader in medical research with breakthroughs changing the world and saving lives every day? Who knew we would become a bridge to peace serving over a million patients a year without regard to race, religion or ethnicity?

Chicago-North Shore Region, 12,000 members strong, is comprised of dynamic, dedicated and passionate women of all ages and stages.  Our 17 vibrant chapters work together to fulfill the mission of Hadassah through educational and social programming, member outreach and instilling a culture of philanthropy to continue our important work.

CNS is not your grandmother’s Hadassah anymore! Our Evolve program engages women in their 30’s to 50’s and offers opportunities for networking with like-minded women, building community and life-long friendships. Our Momentum trips to Israel inspire and connect young women to the land, people and our heritage and foster values to pass on. We are building leaders of tomorrow to ensure a strong future. 

I invite you to hear the compelling stories of survival and medical miracles at Hadassah Medical Organization. Get involved in advocating for women’s rights and health issues, fighting anti-Semitism, nurturing a secure U.S.-Israel relationship, supporting youth-at-risk at our Youth Aliyah villages and helping to inpsire and build the next generation of Jewish leaders through Young Judaea.

Come check us out and join Hadassah: The Power of Women Who Do!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Greta Rothschild
President, Hadassah Chicago-North Shore
