- DescriptionHadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, has long wielded power in the halls of American political institutions and in the minds of many Jews in the United States.

Hadassah is important t only for what it tells us about women but also for what it reveals about Jewish history and politics, about Zionism, and about America. In the post World War II era, Hadassah played a significant role in shaping Jewish women's political action and identity. Widely kwn for its work in Israel, Hadassah played a central role in shaping the way generations of American Jewish women thought about themselves and about their involvement on the American political scene.
