360 Degrees of Healing
360 Degrees of Healing (hadassah home tile)

Hadassah Medical Organization, founded by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. has defined health care in Israel. It’s about compassion. It’s about healing. It’s about life.

But that’s not all. It’s also about a 360-degree vision in a changing world.

Hadassah is the founder of Israel’s modern health-care system and has been tireless in maintaining the highest standards for more than 100 years. Since 1960, the population of Jerusalem has tripled, and the demands on the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) and Hadassah Hospital at the Ein Kerem campus have grown exponentially. Hadassah must respond—and we must look forward. So HMO begins, first by completely reimagining the iconic Round Building, the hospital’s original inpatient center at Ein Kerem. With this renovation and expansion, the new Round Building will be an important healing center for Israel. It will significantly advance the services in its outpatient surgery, maternity, oncology, and dermatology departments.

From our President

Gail Black

Shanah Tovah!

As Rosh Hashana approaches, I wish you all a sweet New Year filled with good health, happiness and success. Each new year brings change to our lives, and it is no different for Hadassah. We are looking forward to continued research miracles, to renovating our Round Building at Ein Kerem and new rehabilitation therapy technology at Mount Scopus.

In the spirit of tikkun olam, we are grateful for Hadassah's work in the following programs:

Research in Service to Humanity campaign, highlighting heart disease, multiple sclerosis, melanoma, and breast cancer

Stem cell therapy research to develop treatments and cures for diseases like age-related macular degeneration, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes

Fighting anti-Semitism and BDS with learning materials developed by Hadassah and the online speaker series Defining Zionism in the 21st Century

Advocacy for Gender Equity in Medical Research Better Gun Control, Israel and Fighting Human Trafficking, anti-Semitism and Sexual Harassment

Youth Aliyah Program, which sets at-risk children in Israel on the path to a successful future

Young Judaea, the Zionist youth movement that builds a connection to Jewish life and a love of Israel for thousands of American youth and young adults

Region and chapter events throughout the year, designed to educate and raise funds for our projects

Connect with us on Facebook where we have a Hadassah Northern New Jersey page. I also invite you to explore the many volunteer opportunities that are available, help with fundraising initiatives, and join with other members on a special-interest mission or tour of Israel.

We are always in search of new talent, new leaders, and new ideas. Now is the time to step forward and help Hadassah unleash the power of women who do. Please contact our office at 973-241-1500 with any questions you may have so that we can find the right fit for you.

Shanah Tovah u’Metukah
