On Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks for one another.

November 18, 2020

On Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks for one another.

Expressing gratitude — in prayer, song and charitable acts — is central to Judaism. This makes Thanksgiving perhaps the most Jewish of secular holidays. With Thanksgiving approaching, as we reflect on the things for which we are grateful, connecting with our Hadassah community is certainly something to appreciate.

In the spirit of gratitude, consider sharing Hadassah with friends and family. During this time of anxiety and isolation for so many, a gift membership to Hadassah provides connection, comfort and community. It's the perfect gift to be given — and enjoyed — without leaving home. Gift a membership now at hadassah.org/HanukkahIsHere.
