Last Tuesday, San Diego Lions of Judah and Pomegranates joined together for an unforgettable virtual evening with actress, author, neuroscientist and mom, Mayim Bialik. More than 450 women gathered to hear Mayim speak about tradition, family, education, motherhood, Hollywood, and the importance of building a strong and connected Jewish community. Mayim also spoke about her deep appreciation for Federation, and accredited Jewish camp for changing the trajectory of her personal Jewish journey.
Lion of Judah Committee Chair, Lori Polin, shared, “Mayim Bialik is the ultimate girl next door. She has a strong sense of Judaism and placed a great deal of importance on building a Jewish home. During this difficult time, I am grateful that she was there to share her funny and poignant message all of us."
COMING SOON: On March 23, San Diego Lions of Judah and Pomegranates gather once again to hear the incredible story of New York Lion of Judah, Lisa Friedman Clark. After tragically losing her husband on 9/11, Lisa found herself in need of support. Her story is infused with resiliency and legacy as her sons join the conversation to share what philanthropy means to them. More details to come.
The Lions of Judah, giving annual gifts of $5,000+, are the most dynamic philanthropic Jewish women in the world. We are strong women of all ages, an international sisterhood of thousands of global activists who care deeply about the Jewish future.
Pomegranate Society members nurture, sustain, and plant the seeds for the next generation of Jewish leaders. Federation's Pomegranates are critical to the future of our community. Women giving $1,800-$4,999 are invited to join the Pomegranate Society and be recognized for their generous support of our community.
