Hadassah Nominates Incoming National President

Marcie Natan, Chair of Hadassah College Jerusalem, will serve as Hadassah’s next President

NEW YORK – Marcie Natan, former National Treasurer of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, and current National Chair of Hadassah College Jerusalem, was officially nominated Sunday night as incoming National President of Hadassah. The National Board nominated Natan, of New York, N.Y., and Lancaster, Penn., its next National President at its 2011 Midwinter Board meeting, being held Sunday through Tuesday in Jersey City, N.J. Natan will be formally elected by the delegates to Hadassah’s Annual Meeting in July, when current National President Nancy Falchuk will pass on the organization’s highest level volunteer leadership role to Natan.

“I am blessed to have this opportunity to express my Zionism in such a meaningful way,” Natan said of her nomination to the role of National President. Falchuk and Natan will work together during the next several months of transition.

In addition to serving on Hadassah’s National Board and Executive Committee, Natan is a former member of the Hadassah Foundation Board, which seeks to augment the work of Hadassah by improving the status, health and well-being of women and girls in the United States and Israel. As National Treasurer from 2006-10, she led the initiative to create Hadassah’s single consolidated budget, which has helped to streamline financial planning. A member of Hadassah for more than 40 years, Natan also has served as National Vice President, National Secretary, Chair of Planned Giving and Estates, Chair of Major Gifts, Chair of Unit Assessment, National Organization Department Chair and National President’s Training Chair. She was President of the Eastern Pennsylvania Region from 1989-1992.

Natan first visited Israel in 1970, and since then, has been there more than 40 times. She is involved in many Jewish and community service activities. She is a past President of Temple Beth El in Lancaster, Penn., and has served on the boards of the Lancaster Jewish Community Center, the Lancaster Jewish Federation and the Sisterhood of Temple Beth El. She has taught both Hebrew and Sunday school.

Natan has an undergraduate degree in early childhood education from the University of Maryland. She was trained and formerly served as a divorce mediator for the Lancaster Mediation Center. She is a member of a four-generation Hadassah Life-Member and Founder family, which includes her late mother, Anne Deborah Slonim, her daughter Heidi Natan, and her granddaughter, Nina. Her husband, Eli Natan, and son, David Natan, are members of Hadassah Associates, a men’s group that supports Hadassah’s work. Marcie and Eli Natan are part of the Guardians of the Dream financial supporters group.
