More than 900 women and men attended the biannual convention of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America in Atlanta this past week--and several hundred of them attended sessions run by the Hadassah Foundation.
On Tuesday, the Foundation moderated a panel--"To be young, Jewish, female, and a Leader"--that featured several of our grantees. On Wednesday, Foundation Director Rabbi Ellen Flax led a study session on strong women in traditional Jewish texts. Both programs examined women's leadership, which is the main focus of the Foundation's grants in the United States.
