Who We Are

 

The Lions of Judah are the most dynamic philanthropic Jewish women in the world. We are strong women of all ages, a sisterhood of hundreds of San Diego activists who care deeply about the Jewish future.  

 

Federation's Lions of Judah are leading women who give more than $5,000 annually to our campaign.
 

 

What We Do

 

The San Diego 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 the Jewish Federation that reflects her capacity to give.
 

The Lions of Judah set an exemplary standard of leadership and giving.
