Hadassah the Women’s Zionist Organization of America
Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, was founded before Israel was a state and before women could vote. We didn’t sit on the sidelines then, and we certainly don’t now.
Hadassah has always been an organization of visionaries. Over 100 years ago, Hadassah was the first to bring modern medicine to the Middle East. We established Israel’s first teaching hospital, as well as its first nursing, medical and dental schools.
Today, we are 300,000 members strong, across the U.S., and across the generations, proof of just how big an impact we can have when we bring philanthropy and women’s leadership together. It is the largest women’s Zionist membership organization in the U.S. with members in every Congressional district.
Thanks to the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) in Israel, we helped create new treatments and scientific breakthroughs that are saving lives in Israel and around the world.
For 100+ years, Hadassah has worked proactively to find and implement solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing each generation. Together, we’re advancing women’s health, supporting a strong Israel and instilling Jewish values in future generations.
We are empowering women to find their voices to advance health equity in medical research, and fight for the requirement of gender equity protocols in medical research.
Through strong Women leadership development, Hadassah encourages and empower these women to become advocates and activists, to fight hate and antisemitism in the US, and all over the world.
Plant a full vineyard at one of our partner wineries! Root yourself in Israel and invest in the land in a big way by planting a vineyard in your name, or in honor of someone else.
