Hadassah's Gift To Israel

Repeat Tales post from March 13, 2013

Hat Tip:  My sister in law Francine who, along with my brother Brad went to Israel in 2013 with the organization Hadassah to visit the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel.

The Medical Center was built by the women of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America.  Hadassah continues to underwrite a large part of its budget today.  The medical center [according to Wikipedia] ranks as the sixth largest hospital complex in Israel.

I'm really proud of Francine for continuing the tradition of her mother by being such an active member in Hadassah and being a strong unwavering supporter of Israel.  Hadassah is really a great organization that does a lot of good work and if you are a young Jewish woman who loves Israel, you might want to look into joining Hadassah.

Please visit the Hadassah web site here.

Here is a video of  forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance doing a FlashWaltz of Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers at the Hadassah Hospital.

Every Blessing to Francine, Hadassah and Israel!

All readers should go to the Hadassah web site---they are a major player in the health and well being of all israeli citizens, and jews around the world. The new wing of Haddassah Hospital, built with donations, is awesome and helps lead the way in medical therapy and advances that benefit all.I am proud that my wife devotes her volunteer time to such a great cause!

Thanks so much for posting this, Michael, and for your kind words! It is my privilege to volunteer for this incredible organization! Hadassah Hospital is known as the oasis of peace in Jerusalem as Christians, Arabs, and Jews are all patients as well as employees of the hospital, doctors, nurses, and other personnel working side by side. We have another hospital as well on Mt. Scopus.
