Nancy is a full-time volunteer philanthropist who hails from sunny Florida where she looks stunning in Alembika.com’s The Yes! Dress. We asked her a few questions about Hadassah, being a woman, and more…
What event in your life made you think, after that, life will never be the same?
I was in NYC at Hadassah House on 9/11.
What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
I phone a child or friend to catch up on their lives.
What would you do if you had the whole day for yourself?
Leisurely breakfast, read a good book outside in the shade or at the beach.
What is the best thing about being a woman?
Women think faster and are able to multi-task.
What is the one piece of clothing you cannot live without?
What makes you passionate about Hadassah?
Pride for saving lives as empowered women (and men).
Why is this an important collaboration?
As Hadassah members become aware of the clothing line, they can become engaged in the chance to support the Pediatric Bay project in Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital.
What does the slogan “the power of women who DO” mean?
The architects of this phrase sought to emphasize the actions and institutions Hadassah established in Israel and globally—since the time when women didn’t even have the right to vote. It was meant to differentiate us from passive membership organizations.
