As the largest of the Greater Washington Chapters, Neshama has over 2,000 members, ranging in age from the early 60’s to mid-70’s. Members live throughout the Montgomery County area, predominately in Rockville/Potomac and Silver Spring. Many are retired from professional positions and remain very active, volunteering at museums, hospitals, and synagogues, as well as participating in a variety of adult education classes. Neshama features monthly meetings (generally on Sunday mornings or weekdays) with thought-provoking programs concerning current issues in Israel, health matters, and similar subjects of interest. The Chapter also has a book group that meets monthly and an active Urban Explorers group, in which members get together for docent-led tours of museums, galleries and historic sites. Neshama is a warm and welcoming chapter and is always looking for new members to join our activities, and, most importantly, share our commitment to Hadassah and its mission. Please contact Hadassah Greater Washington for contact information for Neshama.
