Abstract: AMIT Women is an organization of orthodox Jewish Zionist women, providing support for poor children in Israel. Throughout the history of the organization AMIT built up a network of vocational schools, homes for children, surrogate family residences and other projects for youth in Israel. In the Cleveland area the organization used to consist of three separate chapters, Ra'anana B'noth, University/Beachwood, and Batya, which eventually merged into one united Greater Cleveland Chapter in 1996. In Cleveland, AMIT was and is a very active part of the Jewish community, organizing numerous fundraising dinners, luncheons, and other events along the Jewish holidays to support both the local Jewish community and to raise money for their numerous projects in Israel. The collection consists of bulletins, newsletters, certificates, correspondence, invitations, member and donor lists, minutes, newspaper clippings, programs of luncheons, dinners, and jubilees, and a script.
