This study discusses women immigrants from Islamic countries who settled in moshavim in the Jerusalem area in the first decade of the State of Israel. They arrived from a traditional society that limited their function to the “home sphere” and encountered a settlement framework that required their economic partnership, especially in the founding years of the moshavim and the farms. The article concludes that partnership between the couple developed in the farm realm; however, in other areas, norms regarding sex roles still remained in force in the new reality.
