I've been a member of NA'AMAT here in Cleveland for over 20 years. I've been active at two levels, chapter & council. NA'AMAT formerly known as Pioneer Women, is in its 82nd year! It was founded by young pioneers in Palestine who wanted to build a society based on equality between men & women. These early 'chalutzim' truly built the country. For the women to help work in the fields, they needed to have centers to watch the children. NA'AMAT day care centers are considered to be some of the best in Israel. They provide a secular setting which including Jewish, Arab & Druze children as well as workers. NA'AMAT serves a teenage population of at-risk students at special high schools. Women can count on us to get legal advise and help with domestic issues. There is a network of clubs throughout Europe & South America & Canada.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
attending a Convention in Israel. We visited day care centers, alternative high schools and women's centers. We were warmly received.We met President Shimon Peres who personally thanked us for our work. NA'AMAT is very appreciated in Israel.
