This week for Giving Tuesday, Hadassah has been shining a spotlight on the outstanding "Wonder Women" at the Hadassah Medical Organization who rank among Israel's top physicians and surgeons. We can all take pride in these miracles happening at the Hadassah hospitals — and the incredible women driving them.
An incredibly generous family will match every new cash donation (including checks and credit cards) made — dollar-for-dollar — from now through December 31, 2022 (up to a cumulative $1,000,000)! Consider supporting the wonders of Hadassah Medical Organization during this giving season.

One Book, One Hadassah:Live with Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of The Latecomer.Hadassah Magazine Executive Editor Lisa Hostein interviews New York Times best-selling author of The Plot, Jean Hanff Korelitz, about her latest novel, The Latecomer.

Witty and multifaceted, The Latecomer explores betrayal and sexuality, religion and art, sibling bonds and rivalry — but most of all it is an examination of what makes a family — genes, birth, cohabitation? Or is it love? Wednesday, December 7, 7 pm ET.
