NA’AMAT’s 90th Anniversary Project
A Women’s Health Center for Sderot
At the recent Distinguished Community Leader Award Luncheon, sponsored by the San Fernando Valley Council of NA’AMAT, Susan Isaacs, the council’s immediate past president and a current national board member of NA’AMAT USA, described a new project to build a Women’s Health Center in Sderot, Israel. Here is a portion of her remarks.
I’m here today to talk to you about Our 90th Anniversary project, a very special effort that we are undertaking to raise funds to build a Women’s Health Center in the city of Sderot in the Western Negev. Many of you have heard about this small city that is less than a mile from Gaza. It’s been in the news many times – The city has been an ongoing target of rocket attacks by Hamas and other radical terrorists groups since 2001.
