Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hadassah and the Zionist Project offers a fresh perspective on Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America and the largest women's organization in the United States, telling the fascinating story of how American Jewish women played a leading role in achieving Zionist goals and shaping the state of Israel. The book also traces Hadassah's involvement in the child rescue movement, which saved thousands of children from Nazi-occupied Europe, as well as from the beleaguered Jewish communities of the Middle East and North Africa.

Book News Annotation:

Simmons (history of medicine, York U., Toronto) describes how Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, sought to improve living conditions of the Yishuv, the Jewish community in pre-1948 Palestine, through hands-on social services to the local population. She says it was very successful, and was the largest Zionist organization in the US from the 1920s through the end of World War II. The study is revised from her Ph.D. dissertation for the University of Toronto (no date noted).
