What Else She Said

"Do it!"

Although Hadassah feels that it's not the same these days, because so many more women are working, she insists that a woman should "do what you can do, but don't let go. Don't say, 'I can't do it.' You can!"

Blocker sets an example for her own advice. Although in a wheelchair at the age of eighty nine, Hadassah has organized a Friday afternoon Shabbat service at the facility in which she resides. "It took a lot of guts to get it going." She teaches Shabbat songs in transliterated Hebrew, and now the service has grown from ten to thirty five participants... I can't stop doing and teaching... I love it!"
