Welcome to CHW Ottawa
Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) started in Ottawa by Lillian Freiman (z”l) over 100 years ago and I am truly honoured to be the President of CHW Ottawa Centre. CHW Ottawa Centre has 2 active chapters, Amit and Negev. The Amit Chapter President is Candice Wilder and the Negev Co-presidents are Sharon Michaelson and Sandy Bennett. Our fundraising focus are the same since our founding of Children, Healthcare and Women and we create profound connections to our projects in Israel and Canada. Our members are very active and meet regularly. The meetings often include interesting speakers and activities and over the years the members have created long lasting friendships.
Our chapters fundraising efforts include their annual teas and other events. The Amit chapter has a crafting group within its chapter that makes baby quilts, aprons, shoe and Mahjong bags as well as other holiday items. Each year we hold a week of Annual Campaign Telethons that help us reach out to all our supporters.
If you are interested in joining CHW Ottawa Centre or you would like more information please contact me (613) 699-0802.
The 2019 Ottawa Spring Tea hosted by members of the Amit, Mollie Betcherman and Ina McCarthy Chapters will be held on Sunday, June 2nd from 2pm to 4pm. This year our honourees will be Lily and Jerry Penso. Lily and Jerry have chosen the Healing Broken Families program at the CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village in Israel to receive the donations made in their honour. These funds will ensure that at-risk children receive the support they need to grow and succeed, and to bring them together with their parents for specialized counselling. Our Tea Co-Chairs are Ellie Greenberg and Debbie Baylin and if you would like an invitation please contact them at 613-699-0802
In April we will hold our 1st Telethon for the Annual Campaign. It’s a few nights of fun and surprises and each night teams gather to reach out to our supporters.
The Negev Tea are in the planning of their phantom tea which will culminate during the fall. Each year donors who donate at least $18 get a chance to win a beautiful piece of art from a well-known Ottawa artist.
