    Joan Dash gives us a nice look at the contrast between the woman Henrietta Szold was and what she achieved I struggled to find much likeable about Henrietta yet grew to admire the tremendous achievement she made on behalf of the very needy pioneers at the founding of Palestine The book was not a nice read as the author worked so very hard to show sympathy to Henrietta Szold s harsh personality and lack of appeal that she interfered with the story.I recommend the book not because it is enjoyabl Joan Dash gives us a nice look at the contrast between the woman Henrietta Szold was and what she achieved I struggled to find much likeable about Henrietta yet grew to admire the tremendous achievement she made on behalf of the very needy pioneers at the founding of Palestine The book was not a nice read as the author worked so very hard to show sympathy to Henrietta Szold s harsh personality and lack of appeal that she interfered with the story.I recommend the book not because it is enjoyable but because there is a marked lack of good material to let you know what a remarkable accomplishment Henrietta Szold made not in spite of, but because of her weaknesses
