Hadassah Southern Seaboard
Our region serves North Carolina (excluding Asheville-Hendersonville) and Virginia (excluding Northern Virginia)
From our President
Hadassah Southern Seaboard Region (SSR) is comprised of 14 chapters (see list below) in the southern half of VA & NC with over 5000 members. Chapters range in size from 80 to 1000+ members. Each chapter’s community is different and while they all support Hadassah’s mission, they do so in ways that fit in with their local communities. Our mission as a region is to support our chapters as they provide meaningful opportunities for Hadassah women to come together to share experiences, to learn and study together, and to build community while working toward common goals.
Effective Jan 1, 2020 we welcome West Virginia chapters Bluefield/Plantation and Charleston to SSR. We look forward to getting to know the leaders and members of those chapters as we integrate them into our region.
In late 2019 I was very fortunate to travel to Israel with other region Presidents coordinated by Hadassah Israel Travel, what used to be known as Hadassah Missions. It was a fabulous, fun-filled impactful trip. We visited both Hadassah Medical Organization facilities as well as Hadassah Youth Village Meir Shfeyah. I want to thank you for your continued support of these Hadassah projects and can assure you the monies you donate are put to good use and really make a difference in the lives of so many. I was very proud to be representing YOU!
So what’s next? I’m looking forward to an exciting 2020, highlighted by our Tri-region Super South conference May 15-17 in Atlanta, Georgia. We will come together with our sister regions, Southern & Southeastern, to bond with Hadassah sisters while becoming energized-- learning more about how to advocate to support the US’s relationship with Israel, how to combat anti-Semitism and how to champion health issues, particularly for women and the underserved. In addition, we will hear the life-changing stories from Hadassah Medical Organization and how we can continue to support HMO’s efforts.
If you are new to our region, want to connect with a chapter or just want to talk about Hadassah, please feel free to contact me.
President, Hadassah Southern Seaboard
