The installation at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem of a moving, polished gold-bronze sculpture called the Cloak of Conscience, a work by the European sculptor Anna Chromy, was the catalyst for a colloquium of Hadassah medical professionals whose subject, fittingly, was “Wrestling with My Conscience: My Hardest Medical Dilemma.” Several years ago Chromy approached Hadassah France, part of Hadassah International, about donating a sculpture to the hospital. Several Hadassah France representatives, who worked with the sculptor to bring the project to fruition, attended the colloquium along with Chromy.
