About Hadassah Australia

Hadassah Australia supports healthcare and collaborative medical research programs that connect the Australian community with Israel.

Hadassah Australia was established in 2003. We provide substantial and meaningful support for Hadassah Hospital and the Israeli community through a range of collaborative programs and activities.

Hadassah is an inspirational beacon of healing, friendship, and peace among all people.

Hadassah is an organisation that has created a shared space where people from diverse backgrounds – Israeli Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, orthodox and secular, new Olim, Palestinians and people from around the world – can safely come together.
