The Greater Miami Jewish Federation Women’s Department recently hosted the 2008 Federation/UJA Campaign Lion of Judah Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami. With more than 300 women in attendance, this year’s event celebrated the 36th anniversary of the creation of the Lion of Judah program. In recognition of the occasion, the Miami-Dade County Commission declared November 1, 2007 as “Greater Miami Jewish Federation Lion of Judah Day.”

The Lion of Judah program was established in Miami in 1972 to recognize women’s philanthropy. Today, more than 14,000 women throughout North America, Israel and around the world proudly wear their Lion of Judah pins as a symbol of their commitment to the Federation/UJA Campaign. The Greater Miami Jewish Federation now raises more than $25 million annually to help Jews in need in Miami, in Israel and in 60 countries worldwide.

Luncheon Chairs were Oriana Azizollahoff, Marsha Gilbert, Amy Hollub and Dolores Wolf. Robyn C. Fisher is Women’s Department President and Mojdeh Khaghan Danial is Campaign Chair.

Marie Brenner, a best-selling author and an award-winning investigative journalist, was guest speaker at the Lion of Judah Luncheon.
