Hadassah

Organization's Mission Statement: In the United States, Hadassah enhances the quality of American and Jewish life through its education and Zionist youth programs, promotes health awareness, and provides personal enrichment and growth for its members.


Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, is a volunteer women's organization, whose members are motivated and inspired to strengthen their partnership with Israel, ensure Jewish continuity, and realize their potential as a dynamic force in American society.

It is the mission of Hadassah's Women's Health program to provide the health education that will empower women of all ages to make informed choices for the improvement of their own, and their families' personal health and well-being. It is the further mission of Women's Health to link this education to the healing and research at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem, creating an awareness of the full scope of Hadassah's work in the field of health.
