One of the Zionist dreams was to take Jews out of the European ghettos and create a "new man" in the fields of Eretz Yisrael. But the dream also meant a "new woman." The American Colony photos, taken over 90 years ago, depict farming at the Nahalal Girls' Agricultural training school, where "a better class" city girl immigrant turned to agriculture. Other images of farming life were taken in zionist colonies, Rishon Lezion and girls' farms. More photos can be viewed at http://www.israeldailypicture.comZionist women were involved in all types of farming and agricultural work including plowing, tending to the livestock, picking flowers and gathering almonds and grapes. The photographers of the American Colony clearly enjoyed taking photographs of these women farmers and field workers. Here we present several of the dozens in the Library of Congress collection.
