Hadassah Southern

The Southern Region of Hadassah’s beginning is twofold. The Southern Region as we know it today (the states we represent) was reorganized and began in February of 1938. This is the date we use as our beginning. However, the first Southern Region was formed November 29, 1926 and consisted of 13 chapters in five states: Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida and Louisiana. With the growth of so many chapters during the next 12 years, the need to reorganize was apparent. The first conference of the reorganized Southern Region was held in Birmingham, AL in February 1938. Our Region now consists of chapters in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, parts of Louisiana, Alabama and the panhandle of Florida.

From our President

Hadassah Southern believes strongly in empowering our members to make a difference! We have so many ways that we can get involved, and every day we learn more about what we can do to make an impact. On February 4-5, Hadassah Southern Board members gathered for a celebration of all that we do—every day as volunteers. We celebrated our Chapter of the Year awards and those individual women who stood out in each chapter as our “Women of the Year.” Janice Weinman, Hadassah National CEO/Executive Director, spoke on Volunteerism and the future of Hadassah, explaining in detail how we—together as a team— can get there. Hadassah believes in building a world where our Jewish values in action create strong community and an enduring Israel. That’s why our entire focus is on connecting and empowering Jewish women to effect change. We’ve done this for over 100 years and we will do it for the next 100—advancing health and well-being, advocating for women, and building community in the US and Israel. We invite all Jewish women to join in—to put their values into action with us and through our programs. This year we are really going to focus on annual giving opportunities at the minimum of just $15 per month, to help us be able to stay on track and continue the amazing work we do! If interested or if someone you know is interested, please sign up at Here.THANK YOUas always for everything amazing you bring to our chapters, and region!
