It is with pride that I take over the presidency of the Sharone Chapter of Hadassah. I look forward to the next 18 months with great anticipation that we will continue to exceed our membership and fund raising goals, as we have done in the past year when we received four certificates of excellence despite having no president to lead the chapter. I attribute these accomplishments to the dedication of our Board members and the support of chapter members.
As we celebrated Hadassah’s 100th year at our Centennial Cabaret on Sunday June 3rd, we looked to the future to continue Hadassah’s work of Repairing The World through saving lives every day, connecting young people to Israel and to their Jewish heritage. Jewish continuity, and tomorrow’s medical miracles, depend on our continued commitment.
This has been an exciting year in many aspects, the most impressive of which is the completion of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. The Tower will be dedicated at the 2012 Annual Convention in Jerusalem in October. We all look forward to hearing from our chapter members who will be attending the dedication on how else we can best support the needs of furnishing the equipment so desperately needed to make the Tower the modern medical institution it needs to be.
As we look to our Chapter goals, it is my hope that our chapter members will be infused with enthusiasm to join us in our endeavors. I am most interested in hearing your suggestions on how we can continue to make our Chapter thrive and grow.
