Welcome to CHW Ottawa
Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) started in Ottawa by Lillian Freiman (z”l) over one hundred years ago, and I am truly honoured to be the President of CHW Ottawa Centre. Our fundraising focuses on Children, Healthcare and Women, and we create strong connections to our projects in Israel and Canada. In addition, CHW Ottawa members have been very active on the national level over the years, with many individuals taking on leadership roles on the National Board.
CHW Ottawa has one large and active chapter that meets every month. Since the start of the pandemic, our meetings have taken place over Zoom. The meetings include interesting speakers and activities, and over the years members have developed long lasting friendships.
Our chapter fundraising efforts include an annual spring tea that is catered by Centre members and honours a deserving member of the Ottawa community. We also hold craft sales, featuring handmade Chanukah and Passover and other items such as baby quilts and Mah Jongg bags. We sell these items at events such as the Chanukah Fair held at the JCC. In 2020, our craft sale turned into an on-line event something we hope to repeat.
Each year we participate in the CHW Annual Campaign and hold telethons that help us reach out to all our supporters. This event takes place in April and May.
