Lion of Judah Lunch & Learn

The Lion of Judah Lunch and Learn series is for women who are Lions of Judah (women making a personal commitment to the Annual 2016 Campaign of $5,000 or more) or Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) participants (women who have established an endowment fund of $100,000 or more in their name), or whose household commitment to the Jewish Federation's 2016 Annual Campaign is $10,000 or more. The Lion Lunch and Learn is an annual series of three events throughout the year, provided as a "perk" for women who are Lions of Judah. Each year, the Lunch series focuses on a new theme.  Generally, the events are hosted at private homes, and include lunch, a speaker, and socializing.

Thursday, May 7, 2018
Location: Private Home
(Address provided upon RSVP)
Lunch will be served. Dietary laws observed. 
Free to attend. 

Join us for our final Lion of Judah Lunch & Learn of the year! Take part in a thought-provoking discussion on Back to the Future presented by Rabbi Mark Staitman, Rabbinic Scholar.  The 2017 Pittsburgh Jewish Community Study, which was recently released, reveals a great deal about the changes over the last number of years.  The changes give us both reason to be pleased and reasons for concern.  What might our Jewish community look like over the next decade?  To what extent will we be able to guide our communal evolution? 

For more information or to RSVP, contact Mia Alcorn at malcorn@jfedpgh.org or 412-992-5222.

Invited are women who are Lions of Judah or LOJE participants.


For more information, please contact Rachel Lipkin, Director of Women's Philanthropy, at 412.992.5227 or rlipkin@jfedpgh.org.
