Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. has been driven by the power of women for over 100 years. In addition to Hadassah Medical Organization’s two hospital campuses in Jerusalem, Hadassah’s 330,000 members, associates, and supporters across America engage in local programming around health, advocacy, and Zionism. Hadassah chapters partner with their local JCCs on lifesaving health programming on a variety of topics: heart health (including nutrition and exercise), breast cancer, diabetes, melanoma, and multiple sclerosis.
When JCCs partner with Hadassah, they receive ready-made health programs that are jointly executed at your JCCs. The Hadassah volunteers and staff provide the know-how and program materials, the JCC provides the venue, both organizations advertise to their lists, and share programming costs and RSVP contact information. Over 30 areas have partnered on almost 50 events and the list keeps growing.
