Become a Lion of Judah


The Lion of Judah is a symbol of today's Jewish Woman's strength, a symbol of her caring about the organized Jewish world and a symbol of her financial commitment of at least $5,000 to the Jewish Federation's Annual Campaign. More than 16,000 women world-wide are Lions of Judah. 


Created in 1972 in Miami by Norma Kipnis-Wilson and Toby Friedland (z"l), the Lion of Judah program has brought together women of all ages and from many walks of life in order to play an essential role in creating social justice, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, preserving human dignity and building Jewish identity. 

The right to wear the pin at the appropriate level is contingent upon a woman’s individual contribution to the Federation's Annual Campaign.
