Shalom Members

Welcome to St. Petersburg Chapter of Hadassah!

Remember, every member is a member of the Membership Committee! Tell friends about Hadassah and maybe they would be interested in joining. Then you and your friends can use your talents and interests in helping the chapter.

We could also use programming ideas. Tell me what would you like to learn about and we can invite a speaker

Although fundraising is an important part of Hadassah, there are other opportunities to participate that don’t take much time. Think of it as doing a mitzvah.

  1. Spend time looking at the National Hadassah website, hadassah.org and learn what the organization does.
  2. Check out the latest medical advances at the hospital.
  3.  Mouse over the Take Action tab.
  4. Look at the Advocate column and click on Action Center to email prepared letters to your congressmen and senators.

 Please contact me if you would like more information or would like to volunteer. No experience is necessary and you might find you have hidden talents.

I thank you and Hadassah thanks you.
