Like every other red-blooded American girl whose mother was active in Hadassah, I grew up believing that the organizer’s founder – the great Henrietta Szold – also established Youth Aliya (Aliyat Hanoar). It was only while preparing for this week’s Street Stroll that I found out truth: when the idea was first suggested to Szold she rejected it. Only after the true founder, Recha Freier, began sending youngsters out of Germany and saving them from Hitler’s clutches did Szold begin to participate with a vengeance.

This week’s street is Rahel Imenu, located in the Katamon neighborhood next to the German Colony.
