Nothing can stop our passionate community. Let's keep going strong.

Wednesday, Jul 29 2020

One important thing hasn’t changed since lockdown: our strong community is still as engaged and connected as ever. Nothing Can Stop Us was a fitting theme for Hadassah’s first-ever virtually held July 2020 National Meetings since more than 750 people attended the online meetings and presentations. Even from home, it’s clear that nothing can stop our passionate community.

So, let’s keep going strong — activate your mind, body and soul with our new Hadassah@home. Hear about the experiences of some extraordinary Jewish women. Sit in on a chat with a brilliant, beloved author. Give yoga a try, or cook something new. There are so many incredible ways to expand your horizons and join in, this week and every week.
