HADASSAH, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America is a volunteer women’s organization, whose members are motivated and inspired to strengthen their partnership with Israel, ensure Jewish continuity and realize their potential as a dynamic force in American society.
Founded in 1912, Hadassah retains the passion and timeless values of its founder, Henrietta Szold, a Jewish scholar and activist, who was dedicated to Judaism, Zionism, and the American ideal. In October, 2007 Szold was inducted into the Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY. “She dedicated her life to fighting ignorance, injustice, anti-Semitism and disease. She never stopped fighting the fears and hatreds that divide people and nations. [She followed] pursuits that would transform people’s lives for the better and help repair the world,” Nancy K. Falchuk, National President of Hadassah, at the induction ceremony.
Committed to the centrality of Israel based on the renaissance of the Jewish people in its historic homeland, Hadassah initiates and supports pace-setting health care, education and youth institutions, and land development to meet the country’s changing needs. In the United States, Hadassah enhances the quality of American and Jewish life through its education and Zionist youth programs, promotes health awareness, and provides personal enrichment and growth for its members.
