The harvest season is almost upon us and while we are grateful for all of our good fortune, there are many who are suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. It would be a blessing to make a donation to those in need at this time because the need is great and will be for some time to come.

See you around the Temple.

Hadassah News!

Please join us for Hadassah’sTisch on Saturday, October 6 at 9:30 am. We hope to have a Minyan so Hannah Keen can practice with the Torah for her upcoming Bat Mitzvah. There will be a yummy brunch after- wards, so do come if you are able. It will be a pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning. Please RSVP to Jan at the Temple office if you are planning on coming.

We are having a Hadassah meeting on Wednesday, October 17 at 11:00 in the Sisterhood Activity Room. Bring your lunch with youand plan on staying for the Rabbi’sBrown Bag Discussion. It is always an informative and entertaining program to attend.

We would like to encourage everyone to bring a toiletry item for the basket to be donated to Safe Homes Network as well as a nonperishable food item for the food barrel when you are coming to the Temple. This is an easy way to help people who are in need of assistance, and we hope you will consider performing this Mitzvah on a regular basis.

See you around the Temple.

Hadassah News

There will be no Hadassah meetings for the months of August or September. However, on Saturday, October 6, we will be sponsoring the Sabbath Tisch to give Hannah Keen one final opportunity to prepare for her Bat Mitzvah. One of the main principles of Hadassah is to promote education for women, so we felt it was appropriate to provide the Tisch at this time. Do join us that day for a minyan and some delicious food afterwards.

We wish everyone a joyous holiday, and we’ll see youaround the Temple.

National Hadassah News!

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:

  • Eliminate the Dickey Amendment, which prevents any CDC funding to be used toward the study of firearms or gun control, and allocate funds to this essential research (H.R. 1832)
  • Advocate supporting Holocaust education through the Never Again Education Act (H.R. 1474) and supporting the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act of 2017 (H.R. 1911 | S. 1292).

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 advocacy@hadassah.org.
