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book tells the story of Henrietta Szold`s lost love through her correspondence with Louis Ginzberg and a previously unpublished private journal.

The Exceptional Friendship of Henrietta Szold and Louis Ginzberg 7 steeped in German culture, Szold was captivated by the immigrants from eastern Europe and charmed by their fierce Jewish passion. In East Baltimore, the Russian Jewish neighborhood, she created one of the nation’s first night schools to aid in their Americanization. At the same time, she joined the Issac Bar Levinson Hebrew Literary Soci-ety, a local branch of the proto- Zionist Hibbat Zion movement. She was an active member, lecturing on such topics  as religious tolerance in Maryland and the poet Emma Lazarus. 8 At the Jewish Publication Society her immediate superior was Judge Mayer Sulzberger, titular head of the publication committee, but the preponderance of the work fell upon “ Miss Szold’s” compliant shoul-ders. Years later one of her critics admitted the enormous scope of her labors: “ the editing [ and] or translating of its manuscripts, the proof-reading of the galleys and the pages, the compiling of indexes and ap-pendices, the preparation of advance  notices, the motherly [ sic] care of rejected and accepted manuscripts.” 9  In the period under consideration here, she assumed two additional responsibilities. First with Cyrus Adler, then alone, she edited four volumes of the American Jewish Year Book, a formidable task that required tact and fortitude in soliciting articles, then following them up, and tiresome, tedious drudgery  com-piling statistics from every American Jewish community. 10  To honor her father’s memory she took on an additional editorial job unconnected with her work for the Publication Society, the revision of a prayer book composed many years before by Benjamin Szold and Marcus Jastrow. 11 For unremitting toil over a period of twenty- three  years, the re-ward was little more than a decennial tribute. 12  On the job Szold suffered many indignities. The salary was low— the Society had been prepared to pay  her as much as $ 200 per annum above her starting pay of $ 1000 13—  and intermittent pleas for  increased remuneration produced delaying tactics or curt denial. 14  In everything but name Szold was editor, but, because of the structure of the publication com-mittee, the Society was free to refuse her suggestions. A case in point was Gustav Karpeles’s book on Jewish history which to Szold was sloppy and unoriginal, in part a repetition of the author’s previous book, “ the rest plagiarized from Graetz, Zunz, and Kayserling.” Not mincing words, she called the author “ a ‘ smart’ journalist, who dares unload his literary refuse upon the Jews in Yankeeland.” When she enumerated his mistakes, however, the response was that he was too busy to change the manuscript. To her great chagrin,  Sulzberger backed Karpeles rather than his indignant “ secretary.” 15   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x For use on stand- alone, non- institutional computers only.
