Nancy Falchuk, the 24th Hadassah National President and former National Chair of Hadassah Magazine, has shown exemplary leadership in all of her important roles in Hadassah. Nancy was a founding member of the Hadassah Medical Organization and has served since the establishment of the Board in 1995. Before becoming President of Hadassah International, Nancy was Chair of Medical and Scientific Relationships for Hadassah International. She traveled through Europe, South America and Israel raising substantial funds for HMO, as well as promoting HMO’s work and creating medical cooperative relationships for Hadassah with other major academic centers.
In 1990, Nancy, a nurse, co-founded the Hadassah National Center for Nurses Councils, the first and still the only national professional organization for Jewish nurses. She currently serves as Chair of the Hadassah National Center for Nurses Councils Advisory Board. With the support of more than 5,000 members of the Hadassah Nurses Councils, Nancy spearheaded the effort to successfully create and fund Israel’s first academic clinical masters program in nursing at the Hadassah-Henrietta Szold School of Nursing in Jerusalem. In 2018, Nancy was honored by Young Judaea Global, the premier American Zionist Youth Movement, for all her efforts on their behalf.
