Hadassah of Greater Philadelphia


    Welcome to Hadassah of Greater Philadelphia – we’re glad you’re here! No matter where you live in the area, you’re certain to find a Hadassah group near you that’s right for you. That’s the beauty of Hadassah… you can connect with women around the corner, while making a difference around the world. 

    Hadassah is an organization you’ll be proud to be a part of. Hadassah Medical Organization in Israel – made up of the state-of-the art Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Kerem and the Hadassah University Hospital at Mount Scopus – have been called a “bridge to peace.” Their staffs treat ALL patients, regardless of religion, nationality or political views. In 2005, Hadassah was nominated for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. And no matter what you’re passionate about, there’s a place for you in Hadassah. Concerned about health issues? 
    Interested in education? We’ve got book clubs, study groups, seminars and workshops. Care about our youth? Our Youth Aliyah program helps at-risk children in Israel, and our Young Judaea programs in the U.S. and Israel foster Jewish identity. 

    Founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold, Hadassah remains as relevant today as it has for generations of committed Jewish women. This year is an exciting one, as it marks Hadassah’s centennial. Look for a calendar full of compelling programs, culminating with our international convention in Jerusalem in October, 2012.
