Women's Philanthropy Giving Levels

Lion of Judah

With a gift of $5,000 or more to the Annual Campaign, a woman earns the distinction of the Lion of Judah. The Lion of Judah pin is worn by 17,500 women in the world and symbolizes their dedication to the Jewish community.

Pomegranate Society 

The Pomegranate honors all women who make a personal gift of $1,800-$4,999 to the Annual Campaign. These women can show their commitment by wearing a sterling silver Pomegranate pin, representing a commitment to saving lives and to helping Jews in need around the world.

Sabra Society

Women who give a dollar a day to the Annual Campaign, up to $1,799 annually, make our Sabra Society. The Sabra is a symbol of the native Israeli – tough on the outside and sweet on the inside. The Sabra endures and continues to thrive, just as we do and our community does.
