Today in Jewish History


Hadassah was founded by Henrietta Szold, the daughter of a Baltimore rabbi. Hadassah's goal has always been to provide health care and related services in the Holy Land. In the last century, it has built two hospitals, a nursing school, a technical college, and numerous Youth Aliyah centers. The facilities welcome people of all faiths, and it is known as a force for peace in the Middle East.


After four years of conflict and intrigue, Queen Isabella of Castile secured her throne. Isabella’s machinations to gain control of the kingdom show her as every bit as other female monarchs as Elizabeth of England or Catherine the Great of Russia. Later in the year, she would marry Ferdinand of Aragon, a move that would lead to the creation of the modern Spanish state. Contrary to popular misconception, she was the abler of the two monarchs. In fact, it was only because Ferdinand was a man in a male-dominated society that saved his reputation. Isabella’s accession to the throne was the first in a series of events that would end with the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.
