Highlights from Hadassah’s Milestone Mission
A Hadassah mission to Israel is more than a behind-the-scenes, all-access tour of Hadassah’s most impactful programs; more than a schedule of seminars and meetups with some of the Jewish state’s most influential politicians, thinkers and doers; and more than a five-star Mediterranean vacation. Indeed, because Hadassah missions incorporate all these experiences, mission-goers consistently rate our trips as some of their best ever to Israel.
From Dream to Innovation, the milestone mission held last October, featured centennial celebrations of the Henrietta Szold Hadassah-Hebrew University School of Nursing, the Hadassah Medical Organization and HMO’s Department of Ophthalmology—in addition to unforgettable sightseeing. Those who traveled on the mission witnessed the significance of Hadassah’s work alongside the success story of Israel, the 70-year-old startup nation. Below, Hadassah Magazine is sharing highlights of the mission—as well as the pre- and post-mission itineraries—to acknowledge our Zionist commitment to building Israel as well as to entice even more members to pack their bags and visit Israel on a future Hadassah mission.
