At Hadassah, we believe that each of us has the power to heal our world. For us, that means bringing healing — in every sense of the word — where it’s needed most, in the US, Israel and around the world. Every day. We’re changemakers. We’re philanthropists. We're advocates. And we’re excited to welcome you, too.

Since 1912, Hadassah has evolved with a forward-looking vision. We’re the largest Jewish women’s organization in the United States. And we're honored to be "a critical force in building an Israel that we all are proud of,” in the words of Israeli President Chaim Herzog, through the Hadassah Medical Organization, our Youth Aliyah villages and our advocacy for Israel.

We’re grateful that together, we made such an inspiring impact in 2022. With your support, we’ll be able to do even more in the years ahead.
