Welcome to CHW Montreal
CHW Montreal President, Alicia Epstein
Henrietta Szold, the founder of Hadassah said “In the life of the spirit, there is no ending that is not a beginning.” As I embark on my term as CHW Montreal’s president, I look forward to working with our committed volunteers, hard working staff and devoted executive committee to continue to support children, healthcare and women in Israel and Canada.
About 16 years ago, I was invited to an information session about Canadian Hadassah-WIZO. I remember so vividly the speaker describing the amazing work that CHW does and I felt an instant connection. What I learnt quickly about this organization is how welcoming, appreciative, hardworking, committed and genuinely kind the women of CHW are.
My agenda for my term is to continue with the established and already successful projects such as the Pro-Am For Kids golf tournament, Art Auction, Tel Hai Bridge, Mahjong and Canasta Luncheon, Shoshanim Passover Baskets, Nurses’ Health Forum, Anna Zaitchick Chapter’s Walk in the Park and various chapter initiatives by the Golda Meir, Theodor Herzl, Sam Klinger and Reuven Feuerstein Chapters. The programming committee is already working on implementing new events such as a fabulous night at the Segal Centre in February 2019 with the production of BOOM X, mother/daughter and family events and fun initiatives like our most recent flower night, in order to introduce the uniqueness of CHW to future generations.
I would like to quote another remarkable strong Jewish woman – Golda Meir “I never did anything alone, whatever was accomplished, was accomplished collectively”.
Thank you and shalom.
