Lost Love: The Untold Story of...

The book tells the story of Henrietta Szold`s lost love through her correspondence with Louis Ginzberg and a previously unpublished private journal.

Preface and Acknowledgments xi extended needed encouragement. Without the editorial support of El-len Frankel of JPS, who supervised the project from start to finish, the book could not have been written. I appreciate the efforts of Christine Sweeney of JPS and Becky Barnhart of Shepherd, Inc., who prepared the manuscript for publication. I would especially like to thank the Memorial Foundation for Jew-ish Culture for supporting this project. An early draft of the Epilogue appeared in the June 1990 issue of Hadassah Magazine. Family members warrant special recognition. I am indebted to the linguistic sensitivity and editorial proficiency of my daughter Dina Projansky, the successful effort of my son Raphael to ferret out the elusive Madison Cawein, and their sister Rebecca’s participation in an academic session where I spoke about the material in this book. My husband Rabbi Norton Shargel patiently endured my immersion in the early years of the twentieth century at a time when he came to grips with personal and communal problems of its final decade. To him I dedicate this volume with great love. Tragedy in our own family heightened my respect for journal writing. In 1986 our son Jonathan died suddenly during a routine surgical procedure. In the months that followed, I went through the motions of mourning in accordance with Jewish law and tra-dition, but remained tight- throated and numb. In the summer of 1987 I attended a teachers’ seminar sponsored by the Melton Foundation. Several sessions were exercises in journal writing, di-rected by the very talented Eduardo Rauch. Putting my thoughts about the tragedy on paper for the first time, I found I could let my emotions rise to the surface. At last I was able to articulate the twenty- four- year ordeal of caring for a handicapped child along with his healthy brother and sisters and my suppressed feelings about his death. I returned from the seminar refreshed and ready to take on the world. Throughout my work on this project, I have struggled with the realization that I was setting before the world a piece never intended for publication. Yet I know that it had to be done, if only to dispel the general impression that Szold was born at age sixty. Here I should add that the wonderful exhibition, “ Daughter of Zion: Henrietta Szold and American Jewish Womanhood,” curated by Barry Kessler of the Jewish Historical Society of Maryland while I was still laboring over the manuscript, shared my purpose.
