Beyond Our Chapter
Dear Hadassah Members,
We are all of us carrying around so much uncertainty every day. I could no longer put off making the difficult decision about our Gala Fundraiser. When I put the question to a vote at our recent virtual Board Meeting—whether to keep, postpone, or cancel the Gala Fundraiser— the decision was overwhelmingly to postpone it until next spring. No one knows what the future will bring, but our Gala is always such a simcha for the entire community that it will have a better chance to be that joyful celebration if we wait. Thank you for putting your trust in us.
In light of the pandemic, long-time Hadassah life member, Joy Pocasangre, wrote me “The best part …is that Hadassah Hospitals are fully functioning. We can be proud of what Hadassah has given Israel and the world.” And Rhoda Smolow, our new National President shares, “we can once again stand proudly to say that our hospital is stepping up to offer what no other hospital can, a separate building, our iconic round building, to house patients suffering with COVID-19.” For full Message, click here
A Happy and Healthy Passover,
Ettie Davis, President

Innovative Treatment for Osteoporosis
Now Available at Hadassah Hospital
Patients with severe osteoporosis are now benefiting from the introduction of a new biological treatment at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem. The drug, given subcutaneously by injection, is an antibody that works against the protein inhibiting bone formation. Given once a month for up to a year, the drug has just entered the “drug basket” of 2020 and can be given to patients unable to receive Forteo, the only bone-building treatment previously available in Israel.
