The former national treasurer of the Hadassah Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Marcie Natan, was nominated on Sunday night to become its next national president, replacing Nancy Falchuk.

Natan, who is currently chairwoman of Hadassah College in Jerusalem, was nominated at the organization’s midwinter board meeting in Jersey City, New Jersey, by Hadassah’s national board and will take office after her formal election at the organization’s annual meeting in July.

“I am blessed to have this opportunity to express my Zionism in such a meaningful way,” said Natan, a Hadassah member for over four decades who will work with Falchuk during the next several months of transition.

As national treasurer from 2006 to 2010, Natan led the initiative to create Hadassah’s single consolidated budget, which has helped to streamline financial planning. A resident of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she visited Israel in 1970 and since then has been here more than 40 times.

She has an undergraduate degree in early childhood education and was trained and formerly served as a divorce mediator.

Falchuk’s decision for personal reasons not to renew the service of Hadassah Medical Organization director-general Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef over a year ago led to an uproar and open rebellion by many of HMO’s staffers; Falchuk relented as a result and decided to allow him to continue at least until 2012.
