A Queen to the Rescue:

The Story of Henrietta Szold, Founder of Hadassah

By Nancy Churnin

Illustrated by Yevgenia Nayberg
 

Henrietta Szold provides a model for social justice, how to work for it, no matter the obstacles. Her determination and spirit remain an inspiration to women all over the world.

“This book is a must-read for people of all ages and beautifully shows the humanitarian side of a terrific lady, Henrietta Szold. We all can learn from her goodness, kindness and charity in this warm, wonderful story.”
— Jo Reingold, VP, Greater Southwest Region of Hadassah

“Szold’s plea for celebration of our common heritage while tolerating, indeed appreciating, the differences among us concerning religious practice is captivating. I recall her words even to this day when a colleague's position betrays a certain lack of understanding.”

— Ruth Bader Ginsburg

From a letter to a friend’s daughter upon her bat mitzvah: “I am enclosing a souvenir for you about two people I admire, Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah, and Anne Frank.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg
