The Pomegranate is a symbol of bounty and sustenance, with its many seeds representing the 613 commandments in the Torah. The Pomegranate Society honors women who give $1800 or more annually to the Federation.
Reflecting strength, honor, and dedication, the Lion of Judah society honors women who make a continuing annual gift of $5000 or more. As a Lion's contributions grow, she is invited to accent her pin with gem stones representing giving levels.
Establishing a Lion of Judah Endowment enables women to leave a legacy perpetuating their values through a permanent fund that guarantees her financial commitment of at least $5000 a year will be made to the Federation in perpetuity.
Lions of Judah and Pomegranates, as well as members of the Crown of Esther society, are invited to take part in exclusive events recognizing them for their extraordinary commitment to the Jewish community. Recent events have included behind-the scenes visits to the NY Botanical Gardens, meet-and-greets with renown footwear icon, Jane Weitzman, and VIP tours of NY galleries and museums.
