A Virtual Tour of the Fascinating Hadassah Archives

"Treasures of the Hadassah Archives: A Virtual Tour of the Hadassah Collection" is a fascinating online program hosted by Melanie Meyers, Director of Collections and Engagement at the American Jewish Historical Society. From inside the archives in New York City and via slide show, Meyers shares rare documents, photos and artifacts and describes the background of this extensive collection that tells the full story of Hadassah's history. Items discussed include children's art projects from pre-State Israel, an "Esther doll" contest prize, a recorded speech by John F. Kennedy to Hadassah members in 1963, vintage cookbooks, and much more.
