For immediate release, please


Hadassah International and Hadassah, The Women Zionist Organization of America, Inc. are proud to launch an exciting Hadassah Song Challenge based on the ancient biblical prayer for healing uttered by Moses: “El na refa na la” / “O God, please let us be healed”.

We ask you to please share the details of the Challenge in your media, including the rules for participation.




Have you seen the beautiful LET US BE HEALED Video? Now you can participate in an exciting Challenge.

Make your own video version of the song in Hebrew or in any language. You can sing it based on the instrumental background which you can find on YouTube. Alternatively, you can make an adaptation using your own instrumental background as long as you keep the original melody.
