Linda Hakerem and Michele Weiner-Merbaum, Hadassah Greater Atlanta’s leadership vice presidents, officiated at the graduation and the installation. They were the 2017 facilitators for CLI, which is designed to bring knowledge, leadership skills and passion to Hadassah.
Sheila Dalmat, who was installed as the Atlanta president for a second term, explained why each attendee was given a rose: “Roses are beautiful, fragrant and remind us of celebrations of life and love. Roses also have thorns, need care (pruning/cutting) and feeding (water and food) to achieve their full beauty. Let’s always nurture our souls and care for our needs and the needs of others so that we can celebrate with full, beautiful roses.”
Sybil Ginsburg, Annie Loventhal and Robin Hyman made arrangements for the event.
