From our President


Dear Hadassah Members, Life Members, Potential Members, and Friends:

Welcome to Neshama - Center City Philadelphia's Young Professionals Chapter. We currently have more than 90 active members!

I would like to give a hearty Mazel Tov to all of our newest leadership board members: Liane Friedberg (VP of Education and Advocacy), Brett Rubin (Secretary), Helene Brennan (Treasurer), Brittany Tuff & Alicia Rosenbaum (Co-VPs of Membership), Alyssa Geller (Communications) and Rachel Palmer (VP of Fundraising). We also have our Immediate Past President, Rachel Baum, helping our new board members and I out.

“There is no organization like Hadassah — working in communities around the US to connect Jewish women and empower them to effect change through support of Israel, advancing health and wellness, and advocacy.” 

These are the words of our past National President, Ellen Hershkin.

We would love to continue to grow our chapter. How can you help us? Share the joy of Hadassah membership with family and friends. Let them know what a wonderful organization we are. Invite friends to our chapter’s and the Philadelphia region’s events. Join us and enjoy the opportunity of making life-time friendships.
