I’ve got an article in the Fall 2008 issue of Contact, the Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life’s quarterly publication, viewable online in PDF form. My article’s on pp. 14-15.
And before you read, please note a couple corrections to it that I just received:
1. Hadassah Hospital was nominated for but did not win the Nobel Peace Prize.
2. Shoshana S. Cardin was not a president of Hadassah, but, “She was the first woman to become the Chair of the Board of Associated Jewish Community of Baltimore in1983; the first female President of Council of Jewish Federations in 1984; the first female Chair of the National Council of Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) in 1988; the first female Chair of the Council [sic] of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in 1991; the first female President of The National Center for Learning and Leadership (CLAL) in 1992; and the first woman to Chair the United Israel Appeal in 1994.” (Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame)
