Houston Hadassah Scrapbook - Anne Frank, 1981-1983
Hadassah was founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold after returning from a trip to pre-state Israel where she was horrified by the impact starvation and disease had on her people. She motivated Jewish women to support a feet-on the-ground approach to end the deplorable conditions in pre-state Israel. Hadassah Medical Organization flourished over the next century into two world-class medical and research centers in Jerusalem. The Houston Chapter is comprised of 15 groups that meet in various areas of the city, at varying times. It is the largest Jewish women's organization in Houston.
The scrapbook contains news clippings, event materials, and memorabilia created by the Anne Frank group of Houston Hadassah.
