The Lions of Judah are the most dynamic philanthropic Jewish women in the world.

The Lions are strong women of all ages, an international sisterhood of thousands of global activists who care deeply about the Jewish future. Lions of Judah play a vital role in creating social justice, aiding the vulnerable, preserving human dignity and building Jewish identity. They demonstrate our dedication to the Jewish community by contributing of their time and resources. Each woman makes an annual donation to the Jewish Federation that sets an exemplary standard of leadership and giving.
