Biographical / Historical

Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America was founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold.

Hadassah aims to provide health care and services worldwide through research support at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem. The organization also seeks to provide opportunities for education, advocacy, and Jewish continuity to members, supporters, and youths in the United States and Israel.

The Sioux Falls chapter continues today under the guidance of the Upper Midwest chapter.
