Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, is the largest Zionist organization in the world. Founded in 1912, Hadassah retains the passion and timeless values of its founder, Henrietta Szold, Jewish scholar and activist, who was dedicated to Judaism, Zionism and the American ideal.
Committed to the centrality of Israel based on the renaissance of the Jewish people in its historic homeland, Hadassah promotes the unity of the Jewish women worldwide. In Israel, Hadassah initiates and supports pace-setting health care, education and youth institutions, and land development to meet the country's changing needs.
In the United States, Hadassah enhances the quality of American and Jewish life through its education and Zionist youth programs, health awareness, and personal enrichment and growth for its members.
The Esther Krinitz group, named in memory of Holocaust survivor and
Frederick retailer and artist, meets monthly for educational and social
events. As part of the Greater Washington Chapter of Hadassah, we offer
many outstanding opportunities to enrich the lives of the members. For
