Bold. Inspired. Everlasting.

Celebrating 25 years of the Lion of Judah Endowment

The strength and vitality of women’s giving continues by establishing a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE). A LOJE gift represents the creation of a fund that will guarantee your annual gift of at least $6,000 to be made to The Associated in perpetuity.

As a LOJE, you may choose to enhance your Lion of Judah pin by adding a flame, known in Hebrew as or l’atid, to recognize this eternal commitment.

Why endow your gift?
To create a lasting impact and legacy
To join a sisterhood of passionate, caring women committed to the future of the Jewish people
To perpetuate the values of tzedakah
To be a role model in your community and to your family
To show your sense of leadership and commitment to tikkun olam
To ensure that your Annual Campaign gift lives on in perpetuity

There are various ways to create endowments, many of which do not have to be funded during a donor’s lifetime.

  • Bequest
  • Retirement Plan Designation
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Bonds
  • Cash

Why leave a Legacy gift? Create a Jewish legacy. Make a difference in the lives of future generations – no gift is too small. Here’s how:

  1. Reflect on your Jewish passions, values and causes that are important to you.
  2. Fill out a Letter of Intent form.
  3. Formalize your commitment by having a conversation with your personal financial advisor or attorney to talk about the different ways you can leave a legacy.
  4. For more information about Life & Legacy contact Itael Toibman, Director of Endowment Development at or 410-369-9240.
