100-Year-Old Hadassah Convention in Jerusalem

Two thousand Hadassah members from around the world are arriving in Israel to celebrate the organization’s centennial and will stage a festive parade through Jerusalem on Tuesday, followed by the dedication of the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower, a 19-story state-of-the-art medical facility at the Hadassah  Medical Center at Ein Kerem.

Hadassah’s highest award, the Henrietta Szold Prize named after its Baltimore-born founder, will be presented to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

“We’re marking 100 years and committing ourselves to the next 100,” said Hadassah National President Marcie Natan.

Besides organizational events next week, the Israel Postal Service, in partnership with Hadassah, will dedicate a stamp that features symbols of Hadassah’s activities in Israel by displaying a Magen David on a blue background, with the emblem of Hadassah and of the Hadassah Medical Center in the upper right-hand corner.
