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 by Ron Finkel AM, the current National President. For us, Hadassah is more than a hospital - it is an inspirational beacon of healing, friendship and peace among all people.

From humble beginnings as a small “outpost” run by volunteers, Hadassah Australia has grown into a very successful DGR-1 charity with a permanent office and professional staff, backed by a growing base of supporters across the country. Hadassah Australia provides substantial and meaningful support for Hadassah Hospital and the Israeli community through a range of collaborative programs and activities.

Our Vision

Hadassah Australia creates sustainable social impact through healthcare and collaborative medical research to support a thriving, inclusive Israeli community and improve global health. 

Our Mission Statement

Inspired by the vision and values of Hadassah Founder, Henrietta Szold, Hadassah Australia is committed to creating a thriving, diverse, equal and inclusive Israel by supporting healthcare programs that:

  • Provide undergraduate scholarships in health for young Ethiopian-Israelis
  • Reinforce the excellence of treatment at Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem.
  • Advance innovative medical research
  • Improve the lives of young people facing trauma
  • Support acute rehabilitation services
  • Enhance early childhood development

Our Values

In striving to create positive social impact through healing programs in Israel, our guiding principles are commitment, respect, and trust. We celebrate the creativity, passion and teamwork that enhance our engagement with program partners and generous supporters.
