Hadassah Southern Seaboard
Our region serves North Carolina (excluding Asheville-Hendersonville) and Virginia (excluding Northern Virginia)
From our President
“Show Up, Step Up, Rise Up!” That is what Rabbi Susie Moskowitz from Temple Beth Torah in Melville, NY told the community during a vigil following the fatal shootings at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and a week before election day. I listened to her words and realized 2019 is my time to enlist: my time to Show up, Step up and Rise up to support Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America.
Why Hadassah? Quite simply, because Hadassah and its mission integrates the values and causes important to me: to support the state of Israel through practical Zionism, to encourage Jewish continuity and to advocate with and for women here in the US.
Southern Seaboard region is 5000+ members strong, spanning Virginia and North Carolina, with chapters ranging 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. I, along with the region board, strive to support the chapter’s programming and fundraising efforts by providing knowledge and tools to move Hadassah causes forward in our local communities.
As I mentioned in my installation speech, I plan to lead Hadassah Southern Seaboard by being flexible, showing gratitude and having fun. 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.
