We invite you to participate in a special opportunity to celebrate Hadassah’s 100th anniversary and share our pride in our organization.

We have developed the Centennial Key campaign so that everyone nationwide can have a remembrance of Hadassah’s important milestone. You and all your Hadassah members, supporters and friends will receive the beautiful sterling silver Centennial Key necklace as a thank you gift when you make a $100 donation to Hadassah’s Centennial Key campaign.


At a recent national convention, the Israeli Speaker of the House, Dahlia Itzik, saw so many women wearing the Centennial Key necklace and thought it was such a beautiful piece, that she requested 30 keys to bring back with her to Israel!

Henrietta Szold, our founder said, “Dare to dream and when you do, dream big.”


With this Centennial Key, we symbolize the dreams Henrietta Szold had almost 100 years ago, the dreams we have today, and those we will have one hundred years from now. Henrietta launched Hadassah by asking other women to participate and to help. Today, it is our turn to ask others to support Hadassah’s life-saving and life-changing work by becoming $100 Centennial Key donors.


Wear your Key, share your Hadassah story, and ask someone to join you in supporting this wonderful organization.


One member shared that she had six Centennial Key donations because whenever someone compliments her on her necklace she tells them they can have one, too, and it’s 100% tax deductible! Consider making a donation and receiving your own Centennial Key necklace.


Together we will reach our goal and celebrate the work we do together!  

 “You are the heart of Hadassah, you hold the Key to the future!”
