Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE)

Minimum commitment of  20 times your Lion of Judah level gift to the annual campaign, or a minimum of  $100,000 to the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation. 

Roar far into the future and keep the Jewish flame burning brightly for generations to come through a Lion of Judah Endowment. As a symbolic act of acknowledgement, a flame is added to the Lion pins of those who make this commitment to be a Forever Lion. Each year these women come together to celebrate the commitment they have made and recognize and lovely remember the women who are no longer with us. Women whose Lion legacy funds total $200,000 or more, or who have made Lion of Judah Endowments in two communities, are part of the renowned national Star of David Society.
