Hadassah Fall Kick-off Event

Boulder Hadassah holds its Fall Kick-off event on Sunday, September 30th  from 4:00-6:00pm.

The event features a presentation by Barbara Daubenspeck, dramatizing “A Woman Named Frances Jacobs, Mother of Colorado Charities.” This is an interesting and touching story about the woman who, in 1872, organized and became president of the Hebrew Ladies’ Relief Society. Her charitable works eventually resulted in the founding of the National Jewish Hospital and the United Way in Denver. She is represented on one of sixteen stained glass windows in the dome of Colorado’s state capitol.

This event will be held in a private home in Boulder. For directions, please contact Sandy Friedman at sfriedman4@gmail.com or 303-257-3995.  Suggested donation: $5.
