Hadassah Australia raises funds for Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. It supports programs which connect the Australian community with Israel, and which make a difference at home and abroad. 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.
In 2019 Hadassah Australia will launch a campaign to raise significant funds for Jerusalem’s first dedicated Rehabilitation Center to address the growing demand of recovering IDF veterans, traffic accident victims, and older citizens.
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, both financially and through a range of collaborative programs and activities.
Hadassah - more than a hospital
