Henrietta Szold

Henrietta Szold and Emma Goldman: Star-crossed "Women of Valor"

December 21st is the winter solstice and this year it was also the date of a lunar eclipse. December 21st, however, is also a big day for two important "stars": Henrietta Szold and Emma Goldman, two very important women in JWA's online Women of Valor exhibit.

More search stories: What if Lillian Wald and Henrietta Szold used Google?

We had so much fun making Emma Goldman's search story that we took requests and made two more! I wonder what else we could do with this neat tool.

A Jewess In Command!

Big news! Earlier this week, National President of Hadassah, June Walker, was nominated as the Chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations. The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations has (shockingly) had only one woman Chair in its history: Shoshana Cardin who served from 1990-1992.
