WHY A WOMAN’S GIFT?

A woman’s impact on our community is incalculable. And that influence is enhanced by giving in her own name. This is more likely to inspire multi-generational and collective giving and foster a strong connection with the causes she supports.

When a woman gives charitably, she is exercising her influence as a decision-maker within our community.

So, why a woman’s gift? Because women give both from knowledge and compassion, a combination that demonstrates their dedication to the needs of the global Jewish community.

GIVING SOCIETIES

LION OF JUDAH

The Lions is an international organization of more than 17,500 inspiring women setting an exemplary standard of leadership and giving. Each Lion makes an annual minimum gift of $5,000. There are special, exclusive programs for Lions throughout the year, such as Lion of Judah Luncheon and International Lion of Judah Conference. Many Lions wear a beautiful pin to events and programs to share their pride of being a part of this special group.

POMEGRANATE SOCIETY

The pomegranate, a symbol of bounty and strength, contains 613 seeds, representing each mitzvah in the Torah. The Pomegranate Society honors women who make a gift of $1,800 or more. Members are welcomed to purchase a silver pomegranate pin representing the power Jewish women hold in our community. There are special programs and events for The Pomegranate Society.

"I love working with amazing women, combining our strengths and talents, all to make a difference in our community. What's not to love?"

"Giving when there is a need and because we can is an act of empathy and doing this with an amazing group of women is truly rewarding."
