Lion of Judah
WHO WE ARE
The Lions of Judah are the most dynamic philanthropic Jewish women in the world. We are strong women of all ages, an international sisterhood of thousands of global activists who care deeply about the Jewish future. There are 132 Columbus Lions.
WHAT WE DO
Lions of Judah play a vital role in creating social justice, aiding the vulnerable, preserving human dignity and building Jewish identity.
We demonstrate our dedication to the Jewish community by contributing of our time and resources. Each woman makes an annual donation to JewishColumbus that reflects her capacity to give. In most communities, the threshold annual commitment is $5,000.
The Lions of Judah set an exemplary standard of leadership and giving.
LION OF JUDAH CONFERENCE
Every two years, Lions gather for three phenomenal days of extraordinary learning, sharing and celebration. We inspire one another and hear from the world’s leading speakers in the fields of religion, culture, art, business and politics.
The Lion of Judah Endowment

FOREVER STARTS TODAY
There’s no denying we live in an uncertain world. However, women are proving stronger than ever. And as a LOJE, you are shaping the Jewish future.
When you create a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE), you establish a charitable gift of at least $100,000 in your name. This endowment is designed to provide ongoing support of Federation and the causes most important to you.
Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you on the best endowment vehicle for you. The most popular ways to create a LOJE include:
- A charitable gift of bequest can be made in your will or living trust
- A retirement fund that names Federation as the beneficiary of all or part of the fund
- Life insurance policy
KEEP THE FLAME ALIVE
A LOJE lights the way for your family and community. Helping to illuminate Jewish life well into the future. Burning bright for all who are in need.
