Dear Hadassah Florida Broward Members,
On April 22, the tenth of Iyar, Theordore Herzl Day, the National Assembly held a zoom meeting to update the leadership on the latest happenings in Hadassah, National President, Rhoda Smolow presiding.
We know Herzl as the Father of Modern Zionism, and in that role, he made some very important statements, that have also been echoed by Henrietta Szold and Hadassah leadership through the decades.

The four Regions of Hadassah Florida have decided that Florida chapters should continue to hold all meetings and events virtually. Hadassah’s National leadership is reviewing current guidelines. Should National revise these guidelines, local policy will also be reviewed. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Scopus Director Dr. Tamar Elram, Hadassah National President Rhoda Smolow and more!

What I Learned About Mentoring From Hadassah
To me, Hadassah and mentoring are intertwined; you can’t have one without the other.
By Randi Lampert
Webster’s dictionary defines a mentor as “a trusted counselor or guide.” Other definitions are similar, usually mentioning that the mentor has more experience than the person they are mentoring, and the need to build trust within the relationship.
I first became involved in Hadassah when I enrolled my two young children in its Training Wheels program. I knew nothing about the organization at that time. Unlike many others, my mother and grandmother had not been members. I joined simply to have something fun and Jewish to do with my two young sons. While I really enjoyed Training Wheels, as did my boys, the best part of it was the beginning of my involvement with Hadassah. It was there that I met the first of many women who would encourage me to step up to leadership roles in the organization. In other words, they were my first Hadassah mentors.
