Dear Members and Friends,

As we have flipped the calendar to August, we hope you are having a wonderful summer- enjoying life and recharging your batteries for the fall and the year to come! With a lot of wonderful help, we are planning an exciting fall and beyond for Richmond Hadassah and we want you to join us for all of the fun and learning and planning to come!  This email contains information about High Holiday Flower Sales, Shabbat Under the Stars, the upcoming Shake it Up and Make a Difference fundraising dance, a night with Herbert the makeup artiste, Lunch and Learns, Gail Moskowitz's installation AND MORE!!

It’s also time to begin planning for the 2016 Elinor Bloom Marshall Award. Following on the success of the 2014 event Honoring Bill Moskowitz, we plan to choose another deserving honoree and begin planning in early September. If you would like to be on the committee or have a suggestion for an honoree, please contact Robin or Rebecca as soon as possible.

We are working on more “Girls’ Nights Out” and programs to attract our younger women. We try and have meetings and programs in the evenings, Sunday mornings and various days to accommodate those who work. We schedule educational and social programs to attract a wide variety of members and interests.  If you have programming suggestions or would like to be involved in organizing an event, please contact Beth Rochkind (804-308-2538 or or Geri Adler (804-833-3720 or

Now that you know about all of the fun and good work we are working on, we need YOUR HELP to do it all! Richmond Hadassah Chapter cannot continue planning, programming and fundraising with the participation of just a few! We all must do our part. Whether you can chair or work on a committee or just attend programs, it is important that you do so.

If more people chose to get involved they would really reap the rewards of programs, friendships and making a difference. Please help us! Attend! Volunteer! Donate! We need you (and it’s a lot of fun)!

If we can answer any questions or help get you involved, do not hesitate to contact us!                                 

Wishing you a VERY EARLY L’shanah Tovah for a sweet, prosperous and Hadassah New Year!
