As South Floridians, we do not feel the change in seasons the same way that our Northern friends do. March marks the beginning of spring. We may or may not notice temperature changes or changes in the weather pattern, but certainly we recognize that winter is ending. It is especially noticeable with the change in time. We will spring forward the second week of March- this year that is March 12th.
Shabbat Zachor: A Time to Celebrate Hadassah
On Hadassah Shabbat Zachor, which falls on the Shabbat before Purim, we celebrate Hadassah’s founding in 1912 and our deep ties to the Purim story. We reflect on Purim’s heroine, Queen Esther, and the way our namesake (Hadassah is Esther’s Hebrew name) inspired Hadassah founder Henrietta Szold as a woman of action.
Every year for the past nine years, Hadassah chapters around the country have partnered with local synagogues — 150 to date — to celebrate Hadassah Shabbat Zachor and share their pride in Hadassah’s myriad accomplishments, past and present.

Tzedakah Six Momentum Group
Back in 2010, our family started the Phoenix Reading Project, in which we collected books from Beth Sholom and Hadassah members in Miami Beach, and later across South Florida, to donate to the families at Chapman Partnership, a shelter for families in downtown Miami. Until the pandemic, Phoenix Reading also hosted a carnival every year, with a DJ, snacks, school supplies, and a bounce house. Since then, because of restrictions at Chapman, we’ve focused on book distribution specifically. Members of our Tzedakah Six participated in the book collection, and over 600 books were donated to families at Chapman. They were distributed to families who reside at Chapman, as part of Temple Beth Sholom Miami Beach’s Mitzvah Day on February 26, 2023.

Galim Raises more than $30,000 during Red Hot Heart night at Bodega Miami Beach
Hadassah Galim Chapter celebrated Red Hot Heart night on February 8th at Bodega Miami Beach raising $30,000 for the cardiology department at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. Elizabeth Resnick, Galim Chapter’s reining president for 15 years spoke to friends and guests. “… I know there is always something happening in this town. Thank you for choosing to be here tonight to make a difference …and raise money for Hadassah cardiology research at Hadassah Hospital.” Red was the hot color fashion trend. We thank our sponsors Bodega for food and the venue host, E11even Vodka, 1818 Tequilla and Madrigal Wines.
Simcha Chapter held their Fashion Show with a Heart Luncheon on February 21, at Miami Shores Country Club. What exciting fashions by Donna Leah Designs. Bling, bling, bling was everywhere. Models from our Simcha Chapter walked along with the models of Donna Leah. They out did themselves walking down the runway from casual to formal attire. Silent auction, drawings and small boutique along with the lunch filled the day. Featured speaker, Dr. Judith Mann (National Donor Experience Chair) and a member of the Simcha Chapter gave us insight on Hadassah’s work. Due to her powerful speech some members wanted more information on the Tree of Healing, a $10,000 gift, which commemorates the rebirth of Hadassah Ein Kerem 360 Degree of Healing Round Building. Thank you to our over 120 participants.

Gonzalez v Google: Inside a Modern-Day David v Goliath Case
Hadassah’s Attorneys and Judges Council presents, Gonzalez v Google, LLC., a case of first impression before the Supreme Court on Sunday, March 19, 2023, 2 pm ET/11 am PT/ 8 pm Israeli time. Join us on Zoom! Click here to register.
Fresh from oral argument before the Supreme Court, Keith Altman will bring us his view on this modern day David v Goliath story. Representing the Gonzalez family whose son died as a result of a terrorist attack, Keith Altman argues that YouTube’s algorithms recommended terrorism recruitment videos to users and thus expanded the reach of the Islamic State. Google, LLC is the owner of YouTube. The Gonzalez case has the potential to alter how social media giants provide content to users.
NItsana Darshan-Leitner (invited), attorney founder of Israel Law Center, has been behind this case for 7 years, fighting terror and antisemitism through the legal arena. She brings charges against those responsible for terror attacks and obtains financial compensation for the victims worldwide. Keith Altman argued this case before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This case was set for oral argument on February 21, 2023.
