  This can be done as an icebreaker for a meeting or just as creative programming to
  add some fun and laughter.

  Prepare jokes of Jewish content ahead of time. Be sure to make enough for all
  attendees of the meeting.

  Give each participant a joke on a piece of paper as they come into the meeting.

  Each participant then has the opportunity to get up and tell their joke to the others.

  Beware this program generally causes bouts of laughter and good feelings!

      This reception can be held at the private home/mansion of a member or a gallery, depending on the
      number of participants.

      Be sure to hold a fundraiser at the event for any of Hadassah’s great Projects.

      Generally it is good to invite people under 40, couples and singles to this event but keep an open mind
      and don’t exclude those older members who may be interested in coming.

      Have the sushi and liquor donated and as a unique idea, label the martini glasses with the martini
      recipe.

      Play music or have a live band to set the mood and make this an elegant event that won’t soon be
      forgotten.

      Ask each member to ask sponsors to pay a certain amount of money for each mile
      they walk.

      This money could be donated to any one of Hadassah’s projects but would tie in best
      with Health related projects.

      This is a great prospective members’ event.

      Start out with an icebreaker by using the Legacy word magnets. As guests arrive
      break them into group. The groups should be given a magnet board and ask the team
      to create a sentence about what Hadassah is or means to them, using the magnets.

      Then show “I am Hadassah Video” and have each current member go around the
      room and tell their own “I am Hadassah” line.

      Create a “Top 10 “list of Why to Join Hadassah and have 10 different people read a
      part of it.

      Add a dash of project education, a teaspoon of membership opportunities and lots of
      food, drink, laughter and fun to make this recipe a success.
