About this event

Join the National Women's History Museum and author Nancy Churnin as she reads her 2021 children's book A Queen to the Rescue: The Story of Henrietta Szold, Founder of Hadassah, followed by live Q&A with the audience!

From our friends at Women and Children First Bookstore:

Henrietta Szold took Queen Esther as a model and worked hard to save the Jewish people. In 1912, she founded the Jewish women's social justice organization, Hadassah. Henrietta started Hadassah determined to offer emergency medical care to mothers and children in Palestine. When WWII broke out, she rescued Jewish children from the Holocaust, and broadened Hadassah's mission to include education, youth development, and women's rights. Hadassah offers free help to all who need it and continues its mission to this day.
