President’s Message

Beyond donating to Hadassah Hospitals, I’m wondering how I can respond to the violence in Israel? what more can I do?  To start with, I turned to our Hadassah National website and learned that Hadassah is spearheading a campaign, endorsed by more than a dozen pro-Israel organizations, to work on education against antisemitism.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children are taught in schools run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA. Unfortunately, researchers have determined that despite promises to the contrary, students in UNRWA schools are learning from a curricula approved by the Palestinian Authority which encourages violence, rejects peace, and demonizes both Israel and the Jewish people. Keep up the fight against antisemitism! Urge Congress to use its voice to spark reforms that will protect children from classrooms that teach hatred while focusing on promoting peace and tolerance.

Contact your legislators to sign a bipartisan letter, urging UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to protect children from dangerous lessons of hatred that only perpetuate the hate into the next generation.  Thank you for joining me in letting your legislators know you care.  Click below:
