Shelley Kaplan of Ocean was installed as national treasurer recently at Hadassah’s national assembly meeting in Los Angeles.
Kaplan chairs Hadassah’s finance committee and sits on the national board. She was a member of Hadassah’s oversight and compliance committee; chair of Hadassah’s national Speakers Bureau and Major Gifts; served on the national finance committee; and was Hadassah Southern New Jersey region president. She is a member of Hadassah’s Circle of Founders and a Benefactor of Peace. A CPA, Kaplan received her B.S. in accounting from SUNY Binghamton and was a tax accountant at Touche Ross in Rochester, N.Y., and a senior tax manager at DeLoitte and Touche, Pittsburgh.
“When I joined Hadassah, I learned what Hadassah does for Israel, why it does it, and why it is important,” Kaplan said. “Hadassah has given me endless opportunities to grow as a Jewish woman, a committed Zionist, and a passionate advocate for Hadassah’s medical research, youth villages, and Jewish continuity. I am proud to serve as HWZOA national treasurer and I look forward to contributing my professional expertise in finance and accounting to further Hadassah’s mission.”
