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book tells the story of Henrietta Szold`s lost love through her correspondence with Louis Ginzberg and a previously unpublished private journal.

Introduction 4 I. The Seminary Milieu, 1903– 1909 Louis Ginzberg and Henrietta Szold dwelled in the heart of several concentric circles. The largest was Ashkenazic Jewry, then in the process of relocation in both a material and a cultural sense. Its nu-cleus was the great Jewish mass of East Europe Jewry, of which nearly one- third was midway through its hegira to the New World. In 1903 the Kishinev pogrom produced brutal attacks upon Jews and their homes and businesses. About fifty Jews were killed, five hundred were injured, and much of local Jewry’s economic base was destroyed. Kishinev soon became, in a contemporary historian’s  words, “ the most potent metaphor for East European Jewish misery.” 2  Jewish immigra-tion was only nine percent of the total immigration to the United States in 1903; between 1904 and 1908 it rose to an average of nearly thirteen percent. More than one hundred thousand Jews settled here in each of these years. This number was achieved again only on the eve of the Great War and in the final window of opportunity  before immigra-tion restrictions were imposed in its aftermath. 3 To borrow an expression that echoed far beyond Hebraist and Zi-onist society, the issue was not only “ the problem of the Jews,” in oth-er words, legal disabilities, poverty, sporadic pogroms in eastern Eu-rope, and the unanticipated resurgence of antisemitism in the west European lands of Emancipation. It was also “ the problem of Judaism,” a religion and a culture threatened from within by intellectual impo-tence and undemocratic communal arrangements and threatened from without by modernist ideas of every stripe— academic and religious, political, social, and economic. The second circle was the Jewish population of New York City, then experiencing the fastest growth in the history of the diaspora. Con-temporary scholars marvel at the flowering of Jewish self- expression: mu-tual aid societies; trade unions struggling to be born; hundreds of new synagogues and prayer groups; and high and low cultural and political expression in newspapers and journals, discussion groups, and the theat-er. But New York Jewry also suffered the consequences of dislocation, es-pecially in the bustling Lower East Side. Oppressive crowding and job uncertainty were most pressing concerns. People feared losing their chil-dren to boorishness, assimilation, and even crime. Szold and Ginzberg were more specifically stationed in a third, much smaller Jewish circle of turn- of- the- century New York— a reli-gious and national- minded intelligensia, mostly newcomers from Eu-rope, a few from other parts of the United States.
