STORIES FROM OUR ARCHIVES

Founded in 1916, the Atlanta Chapter of Hadassah has committed itself to educating, engaging, and empowering its members and the community. While membership in the National Council of Jewish Women was mostly comprised of German Jews who belonged to the Temple, membership in Hadassah was mostly comprised of eastern European Jews who belonged to Ahavath Achim. The Atlanta Chapter of Hadassah recently celebrated its 100th anniversary and currently has over 3,500 members.

Born in Columbus, Georgia, Rhoda Kaufman moved to Atlanta after graduating from Vanderbilt University. She quickly became active in progressive social action initiatives working for the Associated Charities of Atlanta, Georgia Board of Public Welfare, Atlanta Family Welfare Society, and the Social Planning Council of Atlanta. In 1930, she accepted the invitation of President Hoover to participate in the Conference of Social Work, which examined social welfare conditions in the United States.
