We live in an uncertain world and caring for those in need along with building a strong and vibrant community is so very important. The Jewish Federation is dedicated to the continuity, connectivity, and thriving future of the Jewish people and that is why I give. It connects Jewish people here in New Haven, Israel around the world. As a Lion of Judah, I am proud to wear my pin as a symbol of today's Jewish Woman's strength, caring, and ability to make a financial commitment to the Federation Annual Campaign. Additionally, I have endowed my Lion in perpetuity for the future of our Jewish community.
