Lion of Judah
is an internationally recognized designation for women who personally contribute $5000 or more to the Jewish Federation Community Campaign during a given year. Women who reach the "Lion" level with their campaign gifts are entitled to receive a gold pin in the shape of the Lion of Judah. Introduced in 1972, thousands of women around the world proudly wear the Lion pin in recognition of their commitment to the Jewish community. Here in Santa Barbara, Women's Division holds various annual Lion of Judah events, and Lion-level donors are also invited to Lion of Judah National and Regional conferences. See video
Lion of Judah Endowment
In addition to reaching the Lion level, a woman may also establish her own endowment fund. The LOJE provides an opportunity to fulfill long-term and future commitments to Jewish survival and enhancing the quality of Jewish life. LOJE guarantees a woman's financial commitment of $5000 or more every year in perpetuity.
The Pomegranate is an impressive symbol of Jewish life and commitment. As one of the seven fruits named in the Torah, it is said to contain 613 seeds — one for every mitzvah noted in the Torah. The Pomegranate reminds us of our connection to the Jewish community, and our commitment to tikkun olam, the moral responsibility to repair the world and alleviate suffering wherever it exists.
The Pomegranate is also the name of the unique community of women within the Women’s Alliance who are committed to bringing Jewish values to life through tzedakah, righteous giving. Each woman's individual giving to the Jewish Community Federation Campaign begins at $1,800 each year, which supports our local agencies and synagogues, and helps Jews in need here in Santa Barbara, in Israel and throughout the world. Pomegranate programs provide an opportunity to develop bonds with other committed women and to develop a more tangible understanding of how our gifts touch thousands of lives worldwide.
Federation thanks our Santa Barbara Lions of Judah, LOJEs and Pomegranates, who represent a network of extraordinary women who understand the power of giving in your own name.
For over 30 years, the Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara has offered women of all ages a unique opportunity to enhance and support Jewish life in our local community, in Israel and around the world. We are committed to the ideals and values of our Jewish heritage and tradition, to tzedakah (righteousness/charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). We invite you to join an exceptional group of women who strive to inspire, educate and connect people to their Jewish identity, ensuring a Jewish future for today and for the generations to come.
