Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America voted on July 10 at its annual meeting to name Carol Ann Schwartz its next national president. She will start serving a four-year term on Jan. 1, 2024.

Schwartz has worked for more than 30 years at Hadassah—a volunteer organization that is more than 110 years old and has about 300,000 U.S. members—including as national vice president and national secretary. 

Working with Hadassah’s CEO and executive director, she will oversee the organization’s support of Israel, efforts to combat antisemitism and advocacy for women’s health, Hadassah stated. (The organization also supports the Hadassah Medical Organization in Israel.)

Schwartz, who has served on several Jewish nonprofit boards, will replace Rhoda Smolow, who said Schwartz is the “ideal person” to be Hadassah’s national president.

“If I can lead with just some of the grace and wisdom she has shown over the last four years, I cannot help but succeed,” Schwartz stated of Smolow.
