Home > Remembering Henrietta
Hadassah founder Henrietta Szold was born in 1860 and died 84 years later. In the intervening years, she changed the world.
We recall her vision, her strength, her intelligence and her passion. Her love for Israel and the Jewish people.
Though she had no children of her own, Henrietta lives on in the millions of women, men and children saved by Hadassah medical care and research; in the refugee children she welcomed to Israel through Youth Aliyah, when war clouds darkened over Europe; in the generations of Young Judaeans who developed a lifelong connection to Israel and their Jewish heritage.
Henrietta lives on, too, in hundreds of thousands of Hadassah members: activists and advocates, doers and dreamers, who every day lend their strength, their support and their goodness to Israel and the Jewish people.
