A Woman of Valor is hard to find. Have you found her? Tell us how she’s changed your life, who she is, and what makes her life so special. It’s okay to bring a tear to our eye or make us laugh. What we need to see is an original poem that describes your woman of valor like no other.


Marcie Natan Zionism and love for Israel are in Marcie Natan's heart. And Hadassah is in her DNA. She has served the organization with her quiet strength, profound integrity, and generosity of spirit since her early twenties. Marcie has traveled to Israel more than 50 times, including visits during both intifadas and the 2006 Lebanon War. Her time in Israel has intensified her passion and honed the perspective she has brought to Hadassah's National Board and Executive Committee, and the Hadassah Foundation Board.
