The Jewish Foundations

The Jewish Foundations

(p.73) Chapter Four The Jewish Foundations

Mira Katzburg-Yungman

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores Hadassah's ideological foundations. One of Hadassah's basic principles was that it should be a mass Zionist movement for American Jewish women: that is, ultimately every American Jewish woman should be counted among its members. However, the fundamental values and principles that guided Hadassah were not formulated in explicitly ideological statements, and so for the most part must be traced through its publications and activities. Over the years, Hadassah's ideology was shaped by its leaders, who conveyed it to the rank-and-file members through the organization's publications, especially the official Hadassah Newsletter but also various other documents and pamphlets produced by the Education Department, and at the annual conventions. Here, ideology refers to the organization's ideas, values, and modus operandi, whether formulated explicitly or not.
