Golda Mabovitch was born in a Jewish ghetto of Kyiv, Russian Ukraine, in 1898 to Blume Neiditch and Moshe Mabovitch. Tzipke and Sheyna were her two sisters, and she had five other siblings who perished as children. Moshe was a competent carpenter in high demand, but his pay was not always sufficient to feed his family because Jews were not protected under Russian law. Golda's first memory is of her father covering up the windows to protect their home from a mob of Russians who were attacking Jews. Golda's father realized in 1903 that their family was no longer safe in Russia; he went to Milwaukee. In 1906 Golda, her mother, and sisters set off from Kyiv to join Moshe in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Golda was eight years old when she arrived in Milwaukee. Blume opened a little grocery store in the front of their home and demanded that Golda open it every day, causing her to be late for school regularly.
Golda Meir showed early signs of being a capable leader. Golda Meir passed from eighth grade, grabbing the first position in the class. From 1906 - 1912, Golda enrolled at the Fourth Street Grade School. From 1912 - 1916, she attended North Division High School and, from 1916 - 1917, Wisconsin State College of Milwaukee. At 14, she also worked part-time during her studies at North Division High School.
She enrolled in the Milwaukee Teachers' Training College, having graduated in 1916. Meir later rose through the ranks of the Milwaukee Labor Zionist Party to become its leader. When she was 17 years in 1915, she decided to emigrate to Palestine as the full membership of the group required commitment.
On December 24, 1917, Golda Meir and Morris Myerson got married in Milwaukee. They have two children named Menachem Meyerson and Sarah Meyerson.
Golda Meir was born in Ukraine as Goldie Mabovitch, eventually Goldie Myerson. In 1917, Meir organized a march to protest the deadly pogroms against the Ukraine and Poland residing Jews. The event received national attention. When Great Britain approved the Balfour Declaration in November 1917, declaring its assistance for a Jewish state in Palestine, the Zionist cause earned recognition.
Morris Myerson and Golda Meir emigrated to Palestine in 1921 and were members of the Meravya kibbutz. She was an executive committee member from 1934 to World War II. Golda Meir and her children moved to New York City for treatment of her daughter in 1932. In 1933 followed by Hitler's reign, the Jews were targeted by the Nazis. Meir and other leaders had requested the authorities to allow Palestine to accommodate more Jews and gave no support, and The Palestinian British made more restrictions on immigration. In August 1947, a special United Nations committee suggested that Britain withdraw from Palestine and divide the land into an Arab and a Jewish state. Golda Meir was among the 25 signers of the historical document declaring the freedom of Israel in 1948. Meir was appointed as Israel's minister of foreign affairs to the Soviet Union on September 2, 1948, and served until March 1949. She was elected to the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, in 1949 and remained there until 1974. In 1956, she was elected to Foreign Ministry and changed her name to Golda Meir. In January 1966, she became secretary-general of the Mapai Party immediately after retiring as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and backed Prime Minister Levi Eshkol in intraparty disputes. In 1969, Golda Meir became Israel's fourth Prime Minister. The commencement of the fourth Arab-Israeli conflict, known as the Yom Kippur War, in October 1973 put an end to her efforts to reach an agreement with the Arab governments. Because of Israel's lack of war readiness, Meir created a new coalition government only with much effort in March 1974, and she resigned as prime minister on April 10. She stayed in charge as the leader of an interim government until June, when a new government was created. Despite her exhaustion and illness, activists of the Mapai political party asked her to continue as the party's secretary-general.
Golda Meir launched campaigns and fundraisers in her teens to help pay for her less fortunate classmates' textbooks. Meir and her family raised money for European war victims while working for the Jewish Relief Society.
In 1974, Princeton University's American Whig–Cliosophic Society awarded Meir the James Madison Award for Distinguished Public Service and the title of 'World Mother.' Meir received the Israel Prize in 1975 for her outstanding contribution to the individuals and communities of Israel.
