Women’s health is a much-discussed topic in Washington, DC, as inexcusable maternal mortality rates and gaping disparities in preventable health issues — such as heart disease –– stubbornly remain the status quo.
That’s why on Wednesday May 16 at 10 am, you should watch the second annual Women’s Health Empowerment Summit live on Hadassah’s Facebook page. Presented by the Coalition for Women’s Health Equity (which Hadassah founded) during National Women’s Health Week, you won’t want to miss these timely discussions with trailblazers on caregiving, mental health and gender, and the importance of including women in clinical trials.
To follow up on a powerful Summit, members will spend Thursday on Capitol Hill meeting with federal legislators to discuss women’s health equity, including pending legislation.
Hadassah members will also call on Congress to:
If learning about the incredible people working to advance women’s health equity moves you to action, make an appointment in your home district with your federal legislator for a Day in the District. Hadassah National is here to help every step of the way, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, begins April 18. This year, we’re celebrating the 70th anniversary of statehood and the vision of Zionist women like Henrietta Szold and Rose Halprin, who played powerful roles in building support for Israel and the creation of the Jewish state.
Three Ways to Celebrate Yom Ha’Atzmaut
We hope the spring season will be in full bloom soon. The daffodils and tulips remind me of all of the bulb sales we used to do as a Hadassah fundraiser. They are a beautiful reminder of our chapter’s efforts in the past.
We are planning a brief meeting on Wednesday, April 25 at 11:00 am. Plan to stay after- wards for the Rabbi’s monthly brown bag.
Keep collecting your loose change in your Hadassah Tzadakeh boxes. We will be turning them in during our closing luncheon meeting in May.
See you around the Temple.
There will not be a Hadassah meeting in March.
We would like to encourage everyone to attend Saturday morning services on March 17 beginning at 9:30. We will be hosting a tisch in honor of Hadassah that day with good food and fellowship.
There will be no meeting during the month of March.
Passover is almost here and we hope everyone has a joyous Pesach as we celebrate this spring festival of freedom.
