SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Marcia Nebel of Maplewood was the recipient of the Service to Section Award, presented by National Council of Jewish Women/Essex County Section at their Installation and Awards Evening, which took place Tuesday, June 10, at The Club at Orange Lawn.
Nebel was recognized “for her passion and dedication as a volunteer and Life Member of NCJW/Essex for nearly 60 years.” A mother and grandmother, Nebel has actively worked on countless programs and projects over the years with NCJW.
She served as the Recording Secretary for the Evening Division while in her twenties, and went on to become its President from 1969-1972. Through many decades of change, she contributed her talents to numerous programs including the Lifelong Learning Program, Compassionate Phone Calls, and The Wish Project. As the Essex County Section evolved over the years, she continued to contribute and be inspired by NCJW’s mission of social justice and improving the quality of life for women, children and families.
Most recently Ms. Nebel has been on the Nominating Committee and she can often be seen in the office as she enjoys coming in to help with mailings and administrative tasks. When she is involved, you can be sure that something will be done well and in a timely and enthusiastic manner. Her example of volunteerism resonates throughout the organization and is inspiring to all.
