Joyful holiday listening from Israel and more Hadassah miracles.

As we near the end of Hanukkah, it's a wonderful time to revisit the many miracles that came from Hadassah's hospitals this year. Listen to and take joy in these highlights from our Hadassah On Call podcast compiled especially for Hanukkah by host Benyamin Cohen. Eight miraculous stories you can listen to right now or whenever you need a hopeful pick-me-up.

Wednesday, January 13, 7 pm ET.
