In New York in 1912, the first group of Hadassah was chartered after its founder, Henrietta Szold, returned from Jerusalem. The second chapter of Hadassah was chartered in Norfolk, VA. Hadassah’s original purpose was to bring modern health care to Palestine and today, it is the largest women’s Zionist organization in the world. Today, Hadassah Medical Organization is internationally recognized as a leading authority in healing, teaching, and research; and is the largest organizational contributor to Jewish National Fund.
