President's Message

Beyond donating to Hadassah Hospitals, I’m wondering how I can respond to the violence in Israel? what more can I do?  To start with, I turned to our Hadassah National website and learned that Hadassah is spearheading a campaign, endorsed by more than a dozen pro-Israel organizations, to work on education against antisemitism.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children are taught in schools run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA. Unfortunately, researchers have determined that despite promises to the contrary, students in UNRWA schools are learning from a curricula approved by the Palestinian Authority which encourages violence, rejects peace, and demonizes both Israel and the Jewish people. Keep up the fight against antisemitism! Urge Congress to use its voice to spark reforms that will protect children from classrooms that teach hatred while focusing on promoting peace and tolerance.

Contact your legislators to sign a bipartisan letter, urging UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to protect children from dangerous lessons of hatred that only perpetuate the hate into the next generation.  Thank you for joining me in letting your legislators know you care.  Click below:

Jen Mohr, M.Ed
Advocate, Project DVORA
Jewish Family Service of Greater Seattle

“Thanks to Jen Mohr  for explaining so clearly how to recognize signs of domestic violence and how we can help. And thanks to Sarah Hilchie for organizing and moderating this important discussion.My key takeaways -No community is exempt from domestic violence. We can call on Project Dvora for help.”—Rochelle Kochin 

“I would say it's about paying attention to the details because domestic violence can affect anyone.  It can affect our friends or neighbors and we must stay connected.”—Debbie Kaplan Clancy

“This was such an important program for Hadassah to offer -- thank you! I appreciated the valuable information Jen Mohr shared about recognizing the power and control dynamic and early signs of an abusive relationship.” —Sheri Davis

“Immediately after Jean Mohr's exceptional presentation to our Seattle Hadassah women, I added her contact information into my IPhone contacts, under Project Dvora.  As Hadassah sisters, we never know when we will be called upon to offer a friend or family member this critical resource.  Now I will always be ready.”—Susan Adler
