Weinman is Hadassah CEO
May 1st, 2012
Weinman, who now serves as president of Kids in Distressed Situations, a children’s charity, will become the executive director of Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, on June 18. She will replace Morlie Levin, who left Hadassah nearly three years ago and is now the CEO of Birthright Next.
Weinman is a board member of the Hadassah Foundation and also served as Mount Sinai Hospital’s vice president for external affairs.
Meanwhile, a Hadassah-commissioned probe has exonerated two top officials, Marcie Natan and Nancy Falchuk, of financial abuse allegations.
Natan, Hadassah’s national president, and Falchuk, the organization’s former national president, had been accused by Hadassah’s chief operating officer, Larry Blum, of misuse of organizational assets.
Blum outlined the charges in a Jan. 12 letter delivered while he himself was on administrative leave following allegations that he had misused his corporate credit card.
Hadassah responded by asking a committee of Hadassah board members to investigate Blum’s charges, and the committee appointed attorney Dan Kurtz of the firm Skadden Arps to head the probe.
“After performing an extensive investigation, the conclusion we reached regarding the Blum allegations was that none of them were supported by facts,” Kurtz said in a statement released April 19 by Hadassah.
Hadassah will mark its centennial in October.
