This concluding chapter considers developments to 2005. It sets out to assess whether the conclusions reached with regard to Hadassah as an organization remain valid. This question is addressed by considering various developments within Hadassah in the 1970s and the subsequent quarter of a century, years when the organization was affected by significant changes within the wider American Jewish community — specifically, the enormous increase in intermarriage with non-Jews and the impact of the so-called ‘second wave’ of feminism. Notwithstanding these developments and changing circumstances, however, the objectives, goals, and organizational identity of Hadassah as a Zionist organization have remained constant over the years. The focus of its work and investment — the medical projects in Israel — has also remained unchanged.

Keywords:   Hadassah, organizational developments, American Jewry, intermarriage, second-wave feminism, organizational identity, Zionist organisation, medical projects
