Hadassah is blessed with many works of art that enhance our hallways and halls, passages and public spaces; the countless paintings, sculptures and drawings grace both our campuses. Many artists donated their works. Others were donated by Hadassah supporters, who share our belief that art plays an important role in the healing process. Its presence provides a healing environment for people suffering from disease and illness - and for our staff that often cares for them in stressful situations.
These pieces of art convey the message that soothing the soul is as important to us as healing the body. When we stand before them, or simply pass by them, we absorb their message and they make our day a little brighter.
Artists and donors have created and funded works of art to beautify and hence add warmth, serenity, and inspiration to the halls that daily witness the medical trauma and triumph.
The items selected here are part of a far larger collection. They were deliberately chosen for their diversity. Some were commissioned; some were the gifts of generous donors. Some are interwoven with Zionist history from the early pre-State period and including modern Israel. Some are whimsical, some uplifting, some commemorative, and some majestic.
All speak to Hadassah's unwavering commitment to its Mission of "the centrality of Israel based on the renaissance of the Jewish People in its historic homeland… and unity of the Jewish people."
