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The book tells the story of Henrietta Szold`s lost love through her correspondence with Louis Ginzberg and a previously unpublished private journal.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 11 which biblical references warranted inclusion, how entries were to be annotated, and the general organization of the volumes. In private conversation, moreover, Ginzberg referred to the Legends as “ our book.” Far beyond any obligation, Szold helped Ginzberg create articles for the Jewish Quarterly Review based upon his research on fragments from the Cairo Geniza that Schechter had transported from Cam-bridge, England, to New York. An excerpt from her journal portrays her as much more than a proofreader: He actually dictated all the English matter, and for four years, I put as much time and thought upon it as he himself did. These articles would form the core of the second volume of Geonica: the Geonim  and Their Halakic Writings. The first volume, “ The Gaonate,” 28  was equally a product of Szold’s expert editing. They be-came showcases of seminary scholarship, the first two books published under the rubric “ Texts and Studies of the Jewish Theological Semi-nary of America.” Frequent contact with Ginzberg plunged the normally even-tempered Miss Szold into a flurry of mixed emotions, experiencing ecstacy when he praised the translation of a word or a phrase and agony when she observed maidens of blossoming youth— including her own little sister Adele. As she peered into an unforgiving mirror, she compared their willowy forms to her own plump buxom body barely five feet tall and their fresh faces to her own serious, bespecta-cled face. What she called her “ bittersweet happiness” was reinforced by fre-quent strolls with Ginzberg along leafy Riverside Drive, brisker walks in Morningside Park, and occasional forays into the immigrant sec-tion of New York for a Purim service or a light repast. Most of the meals taken together, however, were enjoyed in the comfort of the Szold dining room, where Ginzberg was a frequent and always wel-come guest. Summers found Ginzberg either in Tannersville, a Cat-skill resort which catered to Zionistically inclined intellectuals and academicians, or in European libraries, where he carefully copied out medieval manuscripts. In 1905 and 1906 the two exchanged weekly letters; his displayed comradely affection but nothing more. During three years of study at the seminary, 1903– 1906, Szold re-mained sober minded about a future with Ginzberg.
