More than 900 women and men attended the biannual convention of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America in Atlanta this past week–and several hundred of them attended sessions run by the Hadassah Foundation.
On Tuesday, the Foundation moderated a panel–“To be young, Jewish, female, and a Leader”–that featured several of our grantees. On Wednesday, Foundation Director Rabbi Ellen Flax led a study session on strong women in traditional Jewish texts. Both programs examined women’s leadership, which is the main focus of the Foundation’s grants in the United States.
