#1 Best-selling Novelist & Acclaimed Speaker Jennifer Weiner to Headline Lion of Judah Luncheon in Boca Raton

Hundreds of generous, committed members of the “pride” of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will once again gather to rededicate and celebrate, at the annual Lion of Judah Luncheon. Drawn by shared compassion and generosity, they’ll come together at The Polo Club on Thursday, January 30, 2020. Part of an international sisterhood 17,500 strong, the local Lion contingent of over 700 is among the largest in the country.

“We are thrilled that this year our Lions will be roaring with #1 New York Times best-selling novelist, Jennifer Weiner,” said Shelly Snyder, who is co-chairing the Luncheon with Jeanne Fibus. “A charming, witty and unforgettable speaker, Weiner discusses her writings, her personal experiences and the female experience of the search for a sense of self. In the same sharp and entertaining tone that permeates her novels, Weiner wins over audiences with her unforgettable comedic style.”
