Geri Lipschitz


Welcome to Hadassah Northern New Jersey, an exciting region with 22 chapters, over 11,000 members and numerous opportunities to learn, to lead, and to do. We support Hadassah’s mission to strengthen a connection to Israel, bringing healing and justice to the world. We are a volunteer organization that inspires a passion for and commitment to the land and people of Israel. We enhance the health of people worldwide with our support of medical care and research at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem. Hadassah empowers its members and supporters through opportunities for personal growth, education, advocacy and Jewish continuity.

Please join us for chapter and region activities where you can engage in meaningful projects, learn about the incredible advances in medical research and hands-on patient care happening at the Hadassah hospitals in Jerusalem, and be involved in the many things we do at Hadassah. To help you connect with us, you will receive a bi-monthly calendar of events by email. You will also receive the region bulletin, your chapter bulletin as well as a print copy of the award-winning Hadassah magazine every other month.

Connect with on Facebook where we have a Hadassah Northern New Jersey. I also invite you to explore the many volunteer opportunities that are available, help with fundraising initiatives, and join with other members on a special-interest mission or tour of Israel.

We are always in search of new talent, new leaders, and new ideas. Now is the time to step forward and help Hadassah unleash the power of women who do. Please contact our office at 973-241-1500 with any questions you may have so that we can find the right fit for you.

I look forward to meeting you in person.
