Lion of Judah is a campaign division for women who give a gift of $5,000 or more to the Annual Campaign.

Many Lion of Judah donors have now endowed their gifts to insure that their Lion of Judah gifts will be made every year in perpetuity. LOJE (Lion of Judah Endowment) donors wear the Or L'Atid (Light Unto the Future) flame on their pins as a symbol of this lasting commitment to the Jewish community. A LOJE is a powerful statement of a donor's commitment to tzedakah, providing a legacy for family and community.

Who can make a LOJE Committment?
Every woman who contributes $5,000 or more to her community's annual campaign can establish a LOJE, and add the prestigious Or L'Atid flame to her Lion of Judah pin – an internationally recognized symbol of dedication to the Jewish people.

How can a Lion of Judah make a LOJE commitment?
Every woman has a unique family and financial situation. In recognition of different estate planning and tax objectives, a LOJE can be easily and positively designed to match an individual's personal circumstances with great benefit.

For more information, please contact Robert C. Pozen, Director of Gift Planning, at rpozen@ujft.org.


876 Telsa Leon

“Throughout my entire adult life, I have had great concern for Jewish peoplehood and Jewish quality of life in Tidewater and around the world. I cannot remember when this was not important to me. My hope is that my children and grandchildren will live in a strong and vibrant Jewish community and that our Jewish state, Israel, will also be safe and vibrant.”  Read more.




889 Shelia Josephberg

“When I think about Judaism, I picture a long chain of people leading back through all of my ancestors to Abraham and Sarah. These people have been the caretakers of a powerful heritage that makes me proud to be a Jew. In spite of the best efforts of various groups to destroy us, the Jewish people, thankfully, still exist.”  Read more.




819 Laura Miller

“My family and friends know I spend hours researching my genealogy.  Gathering their names, dates, and stories requires a lot of love and patience.  I'm pleased that I have traced several lines back to the 1500's.  Many of these ancestors are familiar to me now. However, I realize that my life did not begin with them -- it stretches far back into time.  A long line of generations labored to produce me.  Each benefactor passed something of herself/himself on to me.

“The concept of caring for Jewish people, programs and institutions while leaving the Jewish world a better place means a great deal to me.  The Lion of Judah Endowment offered me an opportunity to help fulfill this personal goal. It has also been a wonderful way to teach our children what is of great importance to me - and what I consider to be their responsibility for the future.

It’s important that our daughters learn the significance of giving in their own name.  I did not grow up in a Jewish home, but have worked in our Jewish community since moving here 19 years ago.  I have been blessed to have had terrific role models and teachers in Reba, Sam and Art.  The blending of my family’s belief in social action and Art’s family’s depth of Jewish involvement has served me well.

Our Annual Campaign is so critical to the future success of our Jewish community at home and abroad. I consider my endowment the beginning of a future that will grow and flourish over the years, benefiting Jews around the world long after I am gone.”
