Bill Davidson


Hadassah, the Womens Zionist Organization of America, mourns the death of William "Bill" Davidson. The owner of the Detroit
Pistons and his wife Karen donated S75 million on behalf of Guardian Industries toward building an inpatient tower at the Hadassah
Medical Center in Ein Kerem, Jerusalem. The tower will be named for his late mother Sarah Wetsman Davidson, also of blessed memory.

Mr. Davidson was proud to be the third generation in his family to support Hadassah's goals and achievements, and we, too, are proud to
be forever linked to his life and memory. His committment to Jerusalem, his family, his work and to his philanthropy was inspiring, and he
will be truly missed by Detroit and the Jewish community as a whole. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Davidson's family, the entire
Detroit community, and all others who were lucky enough to be affected by his loyalty, generosity, and tenacity.

May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion.
