Denver Council of Pioneer Women Records

Identifier: B142


Pioneer Women, the Zionist, labor women's organization in the United States was founded in 1925. The group sought to elevate the public profile of the Zionist Pioneer Women's cooperatives in Palestine. The Pioneer Women supported women workers' organizations through American-based philanthropic efforts. The Pioneer Women also emphasized the importance of women in the American Zionist movement and helped the Jewish working-class immigrant, who believed the aims and ideals of socialist Zionism. The Denver Council of Pioneer Women (Medina Chapater) was founded in 1947 and emphasized religion, culture, and education in their work. As Jews moved into Israel, the Denver Council raised funds for Kibbutzim and other centers in Israel. Collection contains minutes from 1953-1968, a 1928 charter and three scrapbooks related to the Denver Council of Pioneer Women from 1928 to 1973.
