History Biographical
Pioneer Women (now called Na'amat) was founded in America and Montreal in 1925. This women's organization, part of the Labour Zionist movement, raises funds which provide half of all social services for Israeli women, youth and children. Affiliated with Israel's Moetzet Hapoalot, they sponsor a nurses training school, children's homes, day cares, vocational and agricultural schools, and community centres which help Jewish and Arab Israelis. Aside from fundraising, they run educational and cultural activities to encourage women to be active in Israeli and Canadian affairs. Pioneer Women/Na'amat was affiliated with their American counterpart until the late 1960s, when they became an independent Canadian group. They support the Habonim-Dror Zionist youth movement, and are active in promoting women's issues, in Israel and elsewhere, by their members throughout Canada and in twelve other nations.
Custodial History
Addition was made in 2014 and 2015 by Vivian Reisler for Na'amat
