Among the women who will be featured by the Hadasah Players on April 2 are Lucy Aharish (left), first Arab-Israeli news anchor on Hebrew-language Israeli television; Hannah Rovina (center), the “First Lady of Hebrew Theater,” and Karnit Flug, economist and first female Governor of the Central Bank of Israel.

The Nashville Chapter of Hadassah will honor inspirational Israeli women on Sunday, April 2 as part of a donor event at the Gordon Jewish Community Center.  

Following a sit-down dinner catered by Bobbie Limor, there will be a dramatic performance featuring notable Israeli women by The Hadassah Players. The women honored come from different sectors of life but share the common tie of all having made a major contribution to Israeli society.  

“I am so excited about our Hadassah Players production, first because of the amazing Israeli women who have had such impact on Israeli society; and second, because of the enthusiasm, experience and dramatic flair of our Hadassah Players,” said Leslie Klein, who is coordinating the production. “We are also extremely blessed to have an extraordinary playwriting team evoking the presence of pilots and spies, activists, educators and poets, bringing them to life on our stage.”

The cost is $60 per person, plus a $50 minimum donation. Those interested in attending should RSVP by Thursday, March 23 to HadassahNashville@gmail.com. For further information, contact Nili Friedman at (615) 498-4564. •
