Kitchen in the Cloud
The Un-Book Cookbook started as an idea to produce something unique, modern and different. We wanted to gather a sampling of Tampa Ameet Chapter of Hadassah's favorite recipes and share them with family and friends. We accepted the challenge of sponsoring a single patient room in the renovated Round Building at En Kerem Campus. The cost to do this is $18,000. Profits from Kitchen in the Cloud: the Un-Book Cookbook are dedicated to that room.
A special Zoom event took place on Sunday, November 15, 2020 with Melanie Meyers, Director of Collections and Engagement at the American Jewish Historical Society. She shared with us the historical societies collection of Jewish cookbooks.
The Un-Book Cookbook can be purchased for $36 by contacting Heidi at email@example.com
Cause for Celebration
Hadassah celebrates the Never Again Education Act being signed into law. This important legislation -- a vital means of combating anti-Semitism -- is the culmination of hard work by all of the Hadassah community.
Our students and teachers will now have greater access to Holocaust education and its universal lessons about the importance of tolerance and standing up against hatred. Today, and every day, we declare #NeverAgain!

From our President
“Looking towards the Future”
Hadassah founded by Henrietta Szold began as a mission to provide emergency care to infants and mothers in pre-state Israel. Parsha Bereshit (“in the beginning”) contains the story of creation and much more. This is a great segway as we look at the following story of Hadassah:
Hadassah flourished over a century into two world-class medical and research centers in Jerusalem. With the founding of Hadassah Medical Organization, the organization proceeded to bring advanced medical care to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, or nationality, and earned a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.
Hadassah also contributed its medical and social expertise as a member of the U.N. Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), as a non-governmental organization (NGO).
Today, with 330,000 members in the U.S, Associates and supporters, Hadassah remains committed to Jewish continuity and building a better world through medicine, healthcare, advocacy, and building bridges of peace.
When a sculptor was creating a bust of Henrietta Szold, not long before her death, she asked him to “make her eyes look to the future.” Henrietta Szold is testament to what one person, one organization, and one vision, can accomplish.
Let us begin each day with eyes toward a future filled with great expectation, hope, peace, and success. May we have crystalized vision and direction as we move forward to heal our nation and our world.
It starts with each one of us... "We are the Women Who do"
