Join us September 7-10 for the 2014 International Lion of Judah Conference. The pride will gather again in the very heart of New York City, at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square.
Lions from around the world will come together to hear from some of today's most respected speakers on issues affecting our Jewish community at home and abroad.
We’ll share strength and sisterhood, learning and laughter. Engage in tzedakah. And marshal our power to invigorate the Jewish world. In short, we’re going to roar.
AboutLion of Judah
The Lion of Judah was founded over 40 years. Today we’re over 17,500 women strong. Providing a valuable resource for the global Jewish community. Instrumental in building and fostering Jewish identity. Aiding Jews in need worldwide. Each Lion fulfills a financial commitment to the Jewish Federation Annual Campaign. Additionally, many of us establish a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) to perpetuate our Lion of Judah gift and ensure the Jewish future.
As Jewish women philanthropists, Lions also bring something unique to the table. A deep sense of caring. A strong connection to each other. A personal understanding of what it means to create a strong Jewish community. Our combined energy, compassion, commitment and financial strength give us a powerful voice. And we’re using it to repair the world. We’re vocal in our own neighborhoods. In Washington. In Israel. And across the globe. Wherever our strength is needed, we’re raising our voices.
