100 Years of Hadassah Atlanta: A Century of Success!


Celebrate 100 Years of Hadassah Atlanta! Hadassah is a charitable women-led organization that was established in Atlanta on November 2, 1916 to provide emergency care for infants and mothers in pre-state Israel. Back then, Hadassah had only 18 charter members. Today, the organization boasts 3,700. Follow Hadassah Atlanta’s journey and their impact on health, medicine, education, and community locally, nationally, and internationally from generation to generation.

This museum exhibition, opening in our Discovery gallery on November 1st, gives visitors an opportunity to explore the 100-year history of Hadassah Atlanta through artifacts, memorabilia, and hundreds of photos. Visitors will also have an opportunity to share their own Hadassah memories and experiences in a video recording booth.

The Hadassah Atlanta exhibit is on display until March 6, 2016.
