Here are a few moments with our donors

Women’s Philanthropy

Pomegrante Society

The pomegranate is one of the seven fruits named in the Bible, said to contain 613 seeds – one for each of the commandments (mitzvot) found in the Torah. This ancient symbol is one of the oldest found in Jewish art and ritual. It has been carved in the entranceways of the earliest synagogues, woven into fabrics, and hammered into silver and gold. The intricate covers for the handles of the Torah scrolls are called pomegranates (rimonim). All women donors who commit an individual gift of $1,800 - $4,999 to the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs are part of the Pomegranate Society.

Being part of the Pomegranate Society is a declaration of your personal commitment to honor traditional Jewish values of justice (tzedek) and acts of loving kindness (gemilut hesed).

Lion of Judah Society

Created in 1972, the Lion of Judah Society is an international symbol of a woman’s commitment to the global Jewish community. Women donors who commit an individual gift of $5,000 or more to the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs proudly wear a Lion pin, which represents the strength, honor, and dedication of the Tribe of Judah, one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Being part of the Lion of Judah Society is a declaration of your personal commitment to honor traditional Jewish values of justice (tzedek) and acts of loving kindness (gemilut hesed).
