At the group’s midwinter meetings in West Palm Beach, Fla., Carol Ann Schwartz began her term as president for Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America. Her appointment was first announced in July.

On Sunday, Schwartz said that she had first started working with Hadassah more than 30 years ago and that when she was nominated last July, she “understood the weight of the responsibility as well as the honor. It is through our members’ and donors’ strength and determination over the generations that Hadassah has become a pillar of Israel, Jewish life and women’s empowerment, committed to healing in every sense of the word.”

Schwartz also serves on the board of the World Zionist Organization. She also sits on the boards of governors for the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish National Fund. She previously served on the board of the Hadassah Medical Organization, which runs the eponymous hospital system in Jerusalem.“

Carol Ann Schwartz’s devotion to Hadassah, the Jewish community and Israel, combined with her fierce intelligence and talent as a manager and leader, make her the ideal person to be Hadassah’s 28th national president,” said Rhoda Smolow, Schwartz’s predecessor.
