Women's Philanthropy Lion of Judah Division | Shalom Austin



For women who want to deepen their involvement by making a gift to the Shalom Austin Annual Campaign.

Women contributing $5,000 and above in their own names to the Shalom Austin Annual Campaign

The Lion of Judah Division was established in Miami in 1972 to recognize a new level of commitment set forth by a cadre of activists. These women knew that to shape the future, they would have to contribute accordingly. What began with 16 women now extends to over 13,000 such women throughout North America.

The Lion of Judah pin is a symbol of sisterhood and connectedness, of leadership and power. It provides a benchmark for women to continue to advance into new spheres of giving as they achieve greater economic success, and it allows women to take active roles in securing their Jewish future, forging new opportunities for creative philanthropic giving.
