Ann, a true humanitarian has held offices in Hadassah’s leadership locally, regionally and nationally. Her dedication and passion for Hadassah’s mission of Tikkun Olam make her truly deserving of this award. Ann’s contributions across many organizations are plentiful and they are the result of her steadfast commitments and generous spirit to improving the well-being of others.

Check It Out! Program

Ann was instrumental in bringing Hadassah’s Check It Out! program to Richmond, reaching over 60,000 students in the area with this breast and testicular cancer self-examination program. She was honored as a Richmond History Maker for those presentations.

In Hadassah, Ann has risen from president of the Richmond chapter to president of the Southern Seaboard Region to serving in many national leadership roles. She has led and served on boards of organizations including Richmond Culinary Guild, Rudlin Torah Academy, Fight SMA, Jewish Community Federation of Richmond and Temple Beth-El Sisterhood.

Her greatest accomplishment is as wife to Elliot, mother to Steve (obm) and Abby, and husband Chris, and Nana to Stella and Ari. To honor her commitment to Hadassah and this award, the Eisenberg/Klein family has made a donation at the Miracle level of giving, which is $5,000 and above.

Chapter President Leslie Baron said of the contribution, “Our Chapter is thrilled beyond belief and Ann and her family’s generosity show why she was chosen- she’s a leader, a philanthropist and a true mensch! This lead gift and the generous donations of so many others will ensure that Hadassah Richmond will make its mark on Hadassah!

Fondly Remembered

The Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award is given bi-annually to an outstanding person who has been unselfishly devoted to causes that benefit society, as was its namesake.

Elinor is fondly remembered for her dedication to Hadassah, her talent, and her devotion to her family, friends and community. Past recipients were Elinor Bloom Marshall (obm), Bill Moskowitz, Richard November, and Deane and Dan Dubansky.

This year, the goal for the Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award is to raise significant funds for the Neurology Department at Hadassah Hospitals in Israel. The department’s achievements in research, clinical trials, stem cell research and treatment for neurodegenerative diseases–multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), epilepsy, and Parkinson’s disease among them– are groundbreaking.

Hadassah enhances the health and lives of people in Israel, the United States and worldwide serving more than a million women, men and children a year, regardless of religion, race or nationality. More information can be found at https://www.hadassah.org.il/en/department_of_neurology/.
