Hadassah, The Women's Zionist Organization of America Inc. is an organization whose main purpose is to rally zionist women around the world to raise funds for health projects in Israel. One of the main activities of Hadassah USA is to organize events to raise funds for the Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem.

Hadassah USA was founded in 1912 by Henrietta Szold. Since its inception, Hadassah has remained unwavering in its devotion to Judaism, Zionism, and American ideals. As the largest volunteer organization and the largest women's organization in America, Hadassah is committed to strengthening the unity of the Jewish people. In Israel, we accomplish this through progressive healthcare, education, youth institutions, volunteerism, and land reclamation. In the U.S. we reach our goals through Jewish and Zionist education programs, Zionist Youth programs, and health awareness programs'[1]
