The Hadassah University Medical Center – Ein Kerem is Israel’s leading university hospital. An internationally recognized teaching hospital and research center, Hadassah also boasts a perhaps lesser-known accolade, a unique collection of one-ofa- kind windows made by Jewish artist Marc Chagall.

Chagall gave the collection of 12 windows to the hospital in 1962 and even came to Jerusalem for the inauguration, held during the Women’s Zionist Organization of America’s Golden Anniversary Celebration.
