Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE)

Minimum endowment of $100,000 to our Federation’s Annual Campaign

Roar far into the future and keep the Jewish flame burning brightly for generations to come through a Lion of Judah Endowment. This prestigious program recognizes Lions who have established a minimum endowment of $100,000 to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Annual Campaign. As a symbolic act of acknowledgement, a “flame” is added to the Lion pins of those who make this commitment to be a “Lion forever.” Each spring, “LOJEs” (women who have made Lion of Judah Endowments) come together to celebrate the most exclusive local gathering of Lions. Additionally, those whose Lion legacy funds total $200,000 or more, or who have made Lion of Judah Endowments in two communities, become part of the renowned national Star of David Society.
