Member of Knesset and member of the Tel Aviv-Yafo City Council
In 1914, she was elected a member of the Histadrut Center of the "Tarbut" network, which operated schools and kindergartens where Jewish boys and girls studied. When she recognized the shortage of Jewish textbooks, she purchased a printing house and opened a publishing house.
She called the publishing house "Amanut" ("Art"), the publishing activity migrated from Moscow to Frankfurt. When she immigrated to Israel in 1925, the publishing house moved to Tel Aviv. Among the books translated by the publisher were "Les Misérables", "The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland", "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" - with a full score and a dictionary for understanding the language.
She gave her daughter Shulamit a bat mitzvah ceremony, in which the daughter also takes on the yoke of Torah and mitzvos, as she herself did.
She served as a Member of Knesset for three terms and as Chair of the Education Council in the Ministry of Education and Culture. Among the laws she initiated: the Compulsory Education Law and the Council for Higher Education Law. Also, as a Member of Knesset she has promoted the employment of women.
Our streets have a special charm.
They reflect history and a culture of values and heritage.
As part of the week "in full exclusion" we will ascend to the miracle of inspiring women who have gained recognition and appreciation by naming a street after their name.
Today, not many streets in the city are named after women, and the municipality is working to rectify the situation: last year, the municipality commemorated more than ten women - artists, creators, social activists, women and spirit, and read about streets and public institutions across the city.
