"During this historic moment in time, the world is crying out to be healed — healing from racism, inequality, antisemitism, economic healing, healing of the American justice system and police brutality," says Michele Norris, President of the Tampa Ameet Chapter of Hadassah, in "American Zionist Women of Color," a panel discussion exploring the challenges Jewish women of color face in today’s America.

At Hadassah, we honor diversity as we remember the importance of inclusion and respect, reflection and action. The first step is to listen. You can start by listening to these powerful women as they share personal stories about their identities and Jewish faith. This is one way we build a stronger Hadassah community, this week and every week.
