360 Degrees of Healing

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.

How to Talk About Israel
Zionism symbol

Hadassah is often asked for advice about the appropriate way to respond to criticism of Israel from news articles, editorials, television and radio programs, speakers at public forums, and small group gatherings which frequently include individuals from multiple religious faiths. As Hadassah members and leaders, we support the democratically elected Government of Israel. We strive to understand the intricacies of the situation in the Middle East and be articulate and diplomatic advocates for Israel.

You can download a helpful guide and learn how to respond to challenging questions about Israel by going to “My Hadassah” and searching for “How to Talk about Israel” under Zionist Education.

From our President

Joanne Shapiro

Welcome to Hadassah Suffolk!  Our region is made up of over 3,000 dynamic, multigenerational, and dedicated women who support the mission and causes of Hadassah.  The eight chapters in our region offer ongoing opportunities to do more than just talk about today’s problems – we promote women’s health and wellness, we empower women advocates, we make Zionism resonate, and we support the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem, one of the pre-eminent medical facilities in the Middle East, and the cutting edge research conducted there. 

Hadassah Suffolk is purposeful and enriching to our membership.  We’re a sisterhood of women where lifelong friendships are fostered and we’re effective because of the active participation and fund-raising contributions of our members.  By volunteering with Hadassah, you have the power to learn, the power to bring about change, and the power to step forward and make a difference! 

If you are not yet a member of Hadassah, we hope you’ll join us!  Our door is always open for new members, new leaders, and new ideas.  Please contact our office at 973-241-1500. so we can answer any of your questions and connect you with the Chapter that best fits your interests.  I look forward to meeting you!
