This week, Janice Weinman steps down from her role as Hadassah's executive director and CEO. For nine years, Janice has steered Hadassah into the future with an unwavering commitment to healing and to women's leadership. We will miss her invaluable guidance.
Janice's direction and vision have been instrumental in driving Hadassah@home — and the many programs and initiatives it has promoted — as a means of bringing our Hadassah community together during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Speaking of vision, Janice's Women of Vision radio series — a new, outstanding program created by Janice in 2021 — is not to be missed. See details below and more ways to engage with Hadassah.
