Welcome to the Northern New England Region of Hadassah


1320 Centre Street, Suite 205
Newton Centre, MA 02459


The Northern New England Region is comprised of nearly 6,000 members in three states--Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, with a proud history that dates from the earliest years of Hadassah. In fact, several of our chapters were among the earliest in Hadassah history, chartering in 1915! Our newest chapter was chartered less than five years ago, and new groups are continually forming.

Our region is remarkable for its leaders and members, and enhanced by the passion, talents and commitment of bright, energetic and articulate women who span eight decades. There truly is something for everyone in the wide array of chapter and region program offerings.
