About the Honorees

Nathan and Marcie Wolfson Bachrach have made community involvement a lifelong commitment.

Marcie’s passion for, and commitment to, the Jewish Community is evident through her devotion to Jewish causes, both professionally and as a lay leader. Marcie grew up at the JCC, and later worked there in various roles, including as Director of the Day Camp, and Director of Camp Livingston.

After retiring as a Jewish professional, she embarked on her volunteer career. She has served on and chaired many committees, including the JCC Special Needs and Inclusion Committee, Reel Abilities Film Festival, Jewish and Israeli Film Festival, and has volunteered with Hamilton County Special Olympics.

As a Past President of our Hillel, Marcie was instrumental in bringing Campus Superstar to Cincinnati, making her a perfect honoree for this event. She is currently the VP of Israel and Overseas for the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and a member of the Rockwern Academy Board.

Nathan is the co-founder and former CEO of Simply Money Advisors, and has been in media for thirty years, including host of a daily radio show, television segments, a regular contributor on the Fox Business channel and CNBC’s Closing Bell, and a columnist for the Cincinnati Enquirer. Nathan has been an active fundraiser for Honor Flight Tristate and on many boards including, Cancer Support Community and the UC Economics Center. He is currently the Chair of the Mayerson JCC Investment Committee.

Nathan has also been a long-time friend of Cincinnati Hillel. Although he jokes that he is Mr. Marcie Bachrach, Hillel continues to be the beneficiary of his talent and wisdom. Hillel is truly fortunate to be honoring Marcie and Nathan at this year’s Campus Superstar event.
