Foreword by Elie Wiesel
Abridged by Esther Kustanowitz

Spanning two centuries, reaching virtually every corner of the globe, the epic story of the Hadassah organization is the inspiring and fascinating history of generations of determined women who worked to heal, enlighten, educate and save lives. With a foreword by Elie Wiesel and a preface by former Israeli Prime Minister, the late Golda Meir.

Hadassah implies few words and many deeds. Hadassah implies devotion, generosity and volunteer and , above all, a woman Jewish heart. Hadassah implies a wide kaleidoscope of action, from health, education, youth Aliyah to the planting of trees.
- Yitzhak Navon, fifth President of the State of Israel

It Takes a Dream is the story of American Jewry, because Hadassah women have been at the center of every great issue of the 20th century. As Judaism becomes more egalitarian, the role of the Hadassah will become event more important in the 21st century.
- Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School, author
