Women’s Philanthropy


A Sisterhood of philanthropic giving within our Dayton Jewish community. Women philanthropists are the change-makers and community-shapers of the world. We are sisters and daughters, mothers and friends, compassionate and committed women at every stage of life. The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton’s Women’s Philanthropy offers a way for Jewish women to engage in the fulfilling work of tikkun olam. Our collective philanthropy enriches our own lives while improving the lives of others.

How to get involved in Women’s Philanthropy

Pearl Society $180–$1,799

Created in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2015, the Pearl Society was established so that women of all ages and backgrounds can give from the heart and feel a connection to Jewish life through events and philanthropy. When a woman makes a give of $180 or more, she is taking personal responsibility for the welfare and continuity of the Jewish people. Together we have the power to take the lead in ensuring a vibrant Jewish community for generations to come.

Pomegranate Society $1,800–$4,999

The Pomegranate Pin Program was launched in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in 1981. Its significance stems from Jewish tradition. The pomegranate has 613 seeds within each fruit, equal to the number of mitzvot (commandments) given to us by God. The pomegranate is one of the oldest symbols found in Jewish art and ritual. The Pomegranate pin is a symbol of a woman’s commitment to honor the mitzvot of tzedakah. In 2012, the Pomegranate Society was introduced to our community.

Lions of Judah $5,000+

Originating in Miami, Florida, in 1972, the Lion of Judah pin was established as a symbol of a woman’s commitment to the worldwide Jewish community, wherever Jews live, wherever Jews are in need. The numbers grew from 16 Lions in that first year to almost 17,500 strong today! The Lion of Judah is a representation of unity. Each woman who wears her pin is uniquely connected to all other Lions, all of whom embody the true meaning of tzedakah. These women are empowered to take the dream of Tikkun Olam and turn it into a reality.
