From our President

Judy Goldman Stephanie Marks Plotkin

Hello Hadassah Southern New England Sisters,

Recently we were installed as your new Hadassah Southern New England Co-Presidents. We are so honored to be your new Co-Presidents and to be supporting the amazing chapters in the Southern New England Region. We are very excited to get to know all of you and attend chapter events. All of you do the very hard work to support Hadassah, and we appreciate your energy, passion, and commitment. We have many exciting plans ahead during the next three years of our presidency.

One of our major goals this coming year will be to support the 360 Degrees of Healing Campaign, which will enable the renovation of the iconic round building on the Ein Kerem campus in order to bring 21st-century care to patients. Another important goal is to reinforce to each of our members in Hadassah Southern New England how important we, as individuals, are to the success of the Hadassah mission. We will also be reaching out to the next generation of Hadassah women, by supporting the activities of the Young Women's Council of Hadassah Northeast. If you are a woman who might be interested in this group, or you know of someone else who might be interested, please let us know.

Joan Astor and Paula London, outgoing Co-Presidents, we thank you for your leadership and hard work over the past 3 years. You accomplished a great deal during your tenure and made an amazing impact on the region. You will be greatly missed, and we hope to see you at upcoming events.

In closing, we welcome all of you to be in touch with us about anything that you need. Many hands working together makes the workload easier. We have a lot of important work to do to continue to support the Hadassah projects in Israel. You are all women who do. We are so proud of you and proud to be part of Hadassah Southern New England. Together we will make an impact in all that we do for Hadassah. Thank you and we hope to see you very soon!

Have a bright Hanukkah and a very happy 2020. We hope you and your families enjoy the season.

Judy Goldman and Stephanie Marks Plotkin
Co-Presidents, Hadassah Southern New England
