Lions of Judah and Pomegranates

About the Program


The Lion of Judah is a symbol of today’s Jewish Woman’s strength, a symbol of her caring about the organized Jewish world and a symbol of her financial commitment of at least $5,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis's Annual Campaign. 


Created in 1972 in Miami by Norma Kipnis-Wilson and Toby Friedland, the Lion of Judah program has brought together women of all ages and from many walks of life in order to play an essential role in creating social justice, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, preserving human dignity and building Jewish identity. 


Every other year, an International Lion of Judah conference is held to bring together Jewish women philanthropists from all over the world. The conference is three days long and is held in New York. There, inspirational speakers share the importance of giving and sustaining the Jewish community. Learn more here
