Hadassah Moving Forward

June Walker, national pres-
ident of Hadassah, is a
diminutive ball of energy.
Constantly traveling across
this country and Israel, she
took time Aug. 31 to speak
to a crowd of about 70 at
the home of Diane and
Marvin Fishman in
Farmington Hills.
Walker, who has worked
as a chemist, respiratory
therapist and head of Hadassah
College Jerusalem, thanked the local
supporters for their "overwhelming
passion for Hadassah" and its projects
and told them that "the future lies in
the hands of those who value
Walker, who lives in Rockaway,
N.J., also updated the group on
upcoming Hadassah projects in Israel,
which include a hospice for terminally
ill children at Mount Scopus, a state-
of-the-art center for emergency medi-
cine and a Judean youth hostel that

will house up to 300 and
includes private bathrooms,
a basketball court and swim-
ming pool.
She also announced plans
to fund-raise for a new med-
ical tower at Hadassah
Hospital in Ein Kerem. The
physical plant is 50 years old
and inadequate, she says.
"Each time June Walker
has an opportunity to lead,
she has visualized and set into motion
the great changes necessary to meet
the needs of the future," said Sue
Luria, president of the Greater Detroit
Chapter of Hadassah.
At the meeting, Luria recognized the
many local supporters through the
years who had given at the Founder's
level or $15,000 over three years.
The event also was hosted by Judy
and Lewis Tann of Bingham Farms.

A lack of response and competing
events in New York City over Labor
Day weekend forced the postpone-
ment of Young Israel of Oak Park's
Shabbaton for Orthodox singles age
Esty Kleid of Oak Park, co-chair of
the event, said fewer than 10 persons
had signed up for the event.
"Next time," she said, "we will pick
a date that isn't in competition with
all the events in New York and we
would advertise it somewhat more."
YIOP is hoping to have the event
later this year, she said.
