America's Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today
On the day of its publication, join us in launching Pamela Nadells America's Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today. A groundbreaking history of how Jewish women have maintained their identity and influenced social activism as they wrote themselves into American history. What does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? In a gripping historical narrative, Pamela S. Nadell weaves together the stories of a diverse group of extraordinary peoplefrom the colonial eras Grace Nathan and her great-granddaughter Emma Lazarus to Bessie Hillman and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to scores of other activists, workers, wives, and mothers who helped carve out a Jewish American identity. The twin threads binding these women together, she argues, are a strong sense of self and a resolute commitment to making the world a better place. Nadell recounts how Jewish women have been at the forefront of causes for centuries, fighting for suffrage, trade unions, civil rights, and feminism, and hoisting banners for Jewish rights around the world.

The AJHS is home to key collections of Jewish American womens movements and organizations and feminist leaders working in the US and abroad, including the National Council of Jewish Women  the NY Section, Hadassah  the Womens Zionist Organization, The Bnai Brith Women, the Federation of Jewish Womens Organizations, and more.
