What Else She Said

"My husband, Ben, Alav Hashalom, was fully supportive and proud. In fact, I taught him how to do Haftarah, too. And he did it on a Brotherhood Sabbath. He didn't want to. But I said, 'You've got a beautiful voice and I'm your teacher. For God's sake, do it!' He did it. He was very good."

Hadassah's job as Director of Camp Pembroke for thirty two years "was a very important part on my life. It consumed me all year round." Hadassah was an innovative camp director, bringing in Israeli camp counselors in order to expose the campers to Israeli life.
