Providing women with the training, tools, inspiration and support they need to make a powerful impact on their own lives, on the US and Israel, and on the world — that's what Hadassah has stood for and excelled at since our founding. This is an essential priority of our organization that perhaps has more urgency today than ever before.
As Hadassah National President Rhoda Smolow recently said, "We believe that when we empower women, we can help heal our world. As we head into 2022, we face many real challenges. That's why we created the #PowerofPurpose, our January 9 conference, by and for women." Watch Rhoda's inspiring video and read about the conference and other meaningful, engaging events below.
