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book tells the story of Henrietta Szold`s lost love through her correspondence with Louis Ginzberg and a previously unpublished private journal.

Henrietta Szold has played a role in my life ever since I was young. My mother, a native Baltimorean like myself and a Hadassah enthu-siast, took personal pride in her. Szold, who founded Hadassah, at-tended our alma mater when it bore the fusty nineteenth- century ti-tle: “ Western Female High School.” Her father, Rabbi Benjamin Szold, officiated at the wedding of my mother’s parents. When I was conducting research for my first book, a biography of Israel Friedlaender, Szold again claimed my attention. Szold and Friedlaender were close Zionist associates who signed their personal correspondence “ with Zionist greetings.” They shared the belief that education was the key to Jewish renaissance and labored together with uneven success on behalf of organizations dedicated to those convictions. Szold solicited Friedlaender’s advice for Hadassah’s motto and gratefully accepted his suggestion: “ The healing of the daughter of my people.” I did not become interested in writing about Szold, however, before I gathered data about Friedlaender’s colleagues. Browsing through the extensive archives of the Jewish Theological Seminary, I found her letters to Ginzberg. They fascinated me. Jerry Schwartz-bard of the library staff kindly retrieved a microfilm copy of the oth-er side of the correspondence. When I first started to think about how to structure this project, I intended to publish the letters only. But something bothered me. Biographies of Szold mentioned that she traced the course of the Ginzberg friendship in a journal. Even though it was written after the correspondence ended, I felt that for the ideas and feelings expressed in the letters to be understood, the journal had to accompany them. But for a long time the journal was unavailable to me. I am deeply indebted to M. Jastrow Levin and his wife Alexandra for granting permission to publish it, as ix Preface and Acknowledgments   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.
