Hadassah’s Partners

Hadassah’s Partners

(p.283) Chapter Thirteen Hadassah’s Partners

Mira Katzburg-Yungman

Liverpool University Press

This chapter details Hadassah's ‘partners’. Hadassah's enterprise in Palestine was the largest collective project of women in the diaspora on behalf of the Yishuv and, later, Israel, and remains so today. It depended for its success, however, on its partners in this enterprise: professionals in the Yishuv and Israel. These doctors, nurses, teachers, and others, most of them European migrants to Israel, gave of the energy, talent, and knowledge they had acquired in the countries in which they had been educated. They were the executors, and sometimes the visionaries, of Hadassah's various projects in the Yishuv and Israel. These people played a critical role in Hadassah's work for the Yishuv and Israel, and in its existence as a Zionist organization in the United States.
