From our President

Ilene_Schneider

Welcome to Hadassah Greater Washington!

Our region has so many opportunities for active women to meet each other, learn new skills, develop friendships and support the outstanding medical research in Hadassah’s hospitals in Jerusalem.

Hadassah Greater Washington has over 7,300 members in the Washington Metropolitan area which includes Maryland, No. Virginia and now W. Virginia (from Annapolis to Silver Spring and Rockville, from Fairfax County to Morgantown, W. Virginia). In addition, we are working on forming a young women’s chapter in Washington, DC. We currently have five active chapters that have monthly or quarterly meetings which engage our members in a variety of activities and programs.

In the past year (on Zoom), we invited expert speakers to inform us about voter education and public policy issues, estate planning and charitable gift annuities and the science behind medical marijuana. We took a virtual visit to Cuba and had a meeting with one of Maryland’s senators at a ‘Virtual Day on the Hill’. Prior to the virus-caused lockdown, we took actual docent-led tours of museums and visited DC landmarks. On a more informal level, we also enjoyed ice cream socials and Game Day for card and mahjong players. We look forward to experiencing these actual trips and social events in the near future but our virtual tours will continue this month. (Call the office for information about our virtual trip to the Balkans!)

Hadassah GW strives to foster Hadassah’s mission: to support women’s health advocacy and infertility research in the US, to promote fundraising activities to help renovate the main hospital in Jerusalem in addition to supporting at-risk youths in Israel, to combat anti-semitism and to further advance positive US – Israeli relationships.

We hope you will find something that stirs your passion and connects you with other dedicated women who want to volunteer their time and energies to demonstrate their love for the land and the people of Israel. Find out more about our programs and how you can be counted among “The Power of Women Who Do”!
