This year the Jewish organization of Hadassah turns 100! It was founded by Henrietta Szold in 1912! And its work is dedicated to Israel, Jewish life in North America and Zionism. It is the largest women’s organization and largest volunteer organization!
Hadassah does such great work. They support Israel in important ways. Of course one of their centerpieces is the magnificent Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. This is an amazing hospital (I know as I have been a patient in that hospital!) They treat everyone Jew and Arab and Christian. Rich and poor. It is a major trauma center and teaching hospital. They do extraordinary research there. Not to mention the fabulous and beautiful Chagall windows that grace the chapel there.
They support a vision of young Zionism and dedication to the land of Israel through their youth movement-Young Judea. And they support Jewish summer camping and provide year in Israel programs through Young Judea!
They run Hadassah College in Israel which provides A.A. degrees and in the U.S. they run a women’s health education program. They engage in advocacy for Israel and for civil liberties.
In celebration of their 100th anniversary year celebration they have a special lifetime membership. For only $100 you can support the great work they do and become a life member of Hadassah. Men and Women can join. Isn’t it time you join the ranks of your mother and grandmother and became “A Hadassah Lady”?
I did. I hope you will consider supporting Israel in this way.
