Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, is the largest Jewish volunteer organization in America, and supports health education and advocacy, strengthened connections with Israel, and research and education initiatives. Founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold, a staunch supporter of the early Zionist movement, Hadassah began by providing medical support for Jewish settlement of Palestine and advancing Zionist ideals at home. Today, Hadassah claims 300,000 members and continues to support medical research, environmental protection and Jewish identity building.
In keeping with the organization’s tradition of female membership and leadership, Janice Weinman has served as executive director and CEO of Hadassah since June 2012. She previously sat as an inaugural board member of the Hadassah Foundation. Before her tenure at Hadassah as executive director and CEO, she worked as president of Kids in Distressed Situations, a charity that supports children suffering from illness, natural disaster and poverty. Before that, she served as vice president for external affairs of The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, executive director and CEO of the American Association of University Women and chairman of a number of university boards.
