country's Jewry," a famous
Jewish historian, Jacob
Rader Marcus, has prepared
two volumes to fill the gap.
One is "The American
Jewish Woman, 1654-
1980," a 256-page narra-
tive. The other, "The
American Jewish Woman:
A Documentary History,"
contains 1,200 pages of let-
ters, wills, memoirs and
biographical sketches.
Dr. Marcus, Distin-
guished Service Professor of
American Jewish History at
the (Reform) Hebrew Union
College, describes the two
volumes as "an attempt to
recapture the past as it ac-
tually was."

The books introduce
the reader to little-known
but remarkable Ameri-
can Jewish women who
are included chronologi-
cally and by their fields of
achievement. They in-
clude:

Green Patrols
Come Under Fire

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
Likud MK clashed with the
head of hte Nature Reserves
Authority over 'allegations
that the so-called "Green
Patrols" mistreated the Be-
douin population in the
Negev and Sinai.
MK Dror Seigerman con-
tended that harassment by
the patrols caused the Be-
douins to cooperate with
terrorist organizations.
Avraham Yaffe, whose
Nature Reserves Authority
operates the patrols, de-
nounced the charges as a
"blood libel" against the
Bedouins and the patrols.
The Green Patrols were
formed six years ago to pre-
vent the misuse- of state-
owned lands. Much of their
activity was aimed against
Bedouin shepherds who
graze their sheep at nature
preserves, military training
areas or other unauthorized
lands.
Yaffe said the patrols
took action against anybody
who violated the law, not
just Bedouins.

The Jewish women in-
clude a remarkable array of
political talent. Along with
the internationally-known
Emma Goldman, there was
Belle Moskovitz, adviser to
New York Governor Al
Smith, described by the
New York Times as "having
wielded more political
power than any woman in
the United States."
The two volumes were
