Hadassa and Wishnevsky was born in Rishon Lezion. She learned in the elementary school ("Chaviv") in the township.
At the age of 16, she lost her father and undertook, together with her mother, to raise her younger brothers and sisters. She did in fact, run the house.
Worried about her little brothers, she brought them from the kindergarten, carrying them on her hands to protect their bare feet from the hot sand.
Due to the difficult situation, as she told in her later years, they would buy wheat, barley, sorghum and went to grind them in the winery; sometimes, when the mill was broken, Hadassa used to walk to Beit Dagon, carrying on her back half a sack of grain for milling. The bread was backed twice a week and Hadassa used to go to Sarafand to sell it to the English and thus help support the family.
When Meir Wishnavsky arrived in the township and had to be hidden from the Turkish army, she hid him in the barn and he was accepted since then as a family member of the Davidson's; later he married Hadassah to be his wife.
Hadassa worked for a while in the winery, in the bottling department. She handled the irrigation of the citrus trees that were in her yard as well as harvesting and selling the fruit.
It is being indicated that until the age of 85 she continued to climb the ladder and pick the fruit.
