KEEPERS OF THE GATE
Keepers of the Gate are a group of Hadassah Donors who participate in a unique program of annual giving.
The program attracts outstanding women who want to make their donation to Hadassah count -
and count BIG!
Annual Pledge: $1000 Golden Keeper: $5000 Young Keeper (through age 45): $500/$750/$1000
All Keepers of the Gate receive a beautiful silver and 14-carat gold David's Harp Pin designed for
Hadassah by Israeli artist Rachel Gera. This lyrical piece of jewelry conveys a profound message expressed in Psalms:
"Blessed is he that considereth the needy."
100 WAYS TO WEAR YOUR KEEPER OF THE GATE PIN
How do you wear your Keeper of the Gate pin? The men's pin (many Associates are Keepers) is worn on the
lapel, but women have many more op ons. Pin it on the shoulder of a suit jacket, or use it to hold a scarf in
place around the neck. Pin it the upper—or lower— sleeve of a jacket.
Wear it on a long chain, or on an omega close to the throat.
However you wear your Keepers pin, it signies that you understand the need for an annual gi to Hadassah to
con nue our lifesaving care and research at Hadassah Medical Center, and our life-enhancing projects in Israel
and at home.
Your Keeper’s pledge can be paid in one sum or divided into monthly payments.
Credit cards are also accepted.
Please contact Heidi Rotberg (704-365-3859) for more information and to make your pledge!
Hadassah Physicians Honored for Their Work
Prof. Dina Ben Yehuda recently received the annual award for outstanding physician, one of 3 recipients,
presented by the Society for Medicine and Law in Israel. What makes it most unique is that it is given
based on recommenda ons of pa ents only. In presen ng the award, the commi ee reported: "She has
vast experience in Hematology, and is involved deeply in clinical as well as research work. Recently she
was recognized as an outstanding teacher by the Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Medicine. Prof.
Ben-Yehuda excels in crea ve thinking and tailor making treatments to pa ents just like a suit. Her
pa ents say that the value of saving life is deeply rooted inside her personality, and she is a symbol of
diligence and thoroughness, compassion and devo on.
This is the second year in a row for a Hadassah physician to receive this pres gious award, as last year it
was presented to Prof. Neri Laufer.
Sari Cohen, senior orthopedic nurse in OR, who was recently the rst Israeli nurse to present in the
annual conference of AOTRAUMA, the world leading orthopedic trauma associa on, made the news
again when she was elected as a member of the European Regional Commi ee of this pres gious
organiza on, for opera ng room prac ces. Sari is one of two Israelis with high level nomina ons in this
interna onal organiza on. The other one is Prof. Rami Moshei , also of Hadassah Hospital, who has been
a member of the Interna onal Board of ORTRAUMA for some me now.
Prof. Ya’akov (Kobi) Pe’er, head of ophthalmology has recently received the Michaelson Macula Society
Award, during the 35th annual conference of the interna onal society which was held in Jerusalem.
Dr. Chamutal Gur from the internal medicine department, who is doing her PhD in the school of
medicine, received the Kaye Innova on Award for a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Her research deals with the role of Natural Killer Cells in autoimmune diseases.
