The Hadassah Foundation mourns the passing of Bernice Tannenbaum on Monday. Bernice, the former national president of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, accomplished so much in her 101 (!!!) years. She was one of the main forces behind the establishment of the Foundation in 1998, and since our beginning, was HWZOA’s liaison to the Foundation–a role she actively engaged in until last year. In her honor, in 2009 the Foundation established the Bernice S. Tannenbaum Prize, which is given annually to someone who has advanced the cause of girls and women.

Bernice, we will miss you!
