Dear Hadassah Friends,
Jews all over the world readily recognize the High Holy Days as the ten days between Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This sacred time in the Jewish calendar prescribes an array of behaviors. On Rosh Hashanah we celebrate with honey and apples and bid each other a sweet New Year. On Yom Kippur we fast and contemplate our transgressions with fresh resolve to continue the work of improving ourselves and the world around us. As Hadassah members we have much to celebrate and much work to pursue. And it is at this time of year your Region Board reviews the activities and progress made so far and prepares for the year ahead.

Hadassah will be returning to in-person events and gatherings!
If your Hadassah chapter will be returning to in person events, local units are required to follow state and local laws and regulations, the current CDC guidelines and recommendations as well as the following Hadassah protocols in order to conduct activities in the safest and healthiest manner possible. Please note: applicable Florida law states that businesses operating in Florida may not require patrons/customers to provide any documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery to gain access to or receive services from the business. These protocols have been mailed to chapter leadership. If you would like a copy of the protocols or have questions about implementing them, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Caroline Klein Simon was born in New York City on November 12, 1900. She was a graduate of Columbia and New York University Law School in 1925.
Being a married, Jewish, and female she was unable to find a position as an attorney. She was advised by friends that a volunteer position might lead to remunerative work. She became the unpaid law clerk at a New York law firm and at the same time became active in the City Women’s Club and the League of Women Voters.
