Henrietta combo

Travel through time with the Jewish Museum of Maryland and be the first in the 21st century to meet Henrietta Szold (1860-1945).  Before “community organizing” had a name, there was Henrietta Szold – the rabbi’s daughter who broke with the traditional role of women to become a champion of Jewish engagement. Her tenacity and courage played a vital role in the expansion of social services, medical services and the founding of the state of Israel.


Hear her story in her own words.


We developed the Henrietta Szold living history character original script in conjunction with Beyond Chicken Soup:  Jews and Medicine in America, an exhibit that explores the ways that science and culture have together shaped health care.  Find out more at www.chickensoupexhibit.org.

Henrietta Szold: Living History Character was made possible through the generous support of the Kolker-Saxon-Hallock Family Foundation, Inc., a supporting foundation of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.

Educational opportunities were made possible by the Jacob & Hilda Blaustein Fund of The Associated.
