The Women's Division of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater provides a vehicle for women to collectively promote, enhance and celebrate Jewish life. The Women's Division works to strengthen the community while demonstrating the impact a woman can make by voicing her support through the Annual Campaign.
Women have traditionally served in volunteer roles as activists and care-givers. Until recently, few have viewed themselves as philanthropists with the power to shape the future of the Jewish community. Statistics tell us that over the next few years there will be a great shift of wealth to the women of the Jewish community. It will then be incumbent upon us to assume the mantle of responsibility to make practical and often difficult decisions about how to fund the institutions that we love and that our community needs.

Lion of Judah
While every dollar counts, there has been extraordinary movement in women's giving. It is called the Lion of Judah. And it is roaring.
Lion of Judah is a campaign division for women who give a gift of $5,000 or more to the Annual Campaign.
Lions of Judah can endow their gifts to benefit the community in perpetuity through the LOJE Program.
The Tikva Division is the newest level of leadership women’s giving in the UJFT Annual Campaign. A Tikva donor is one making an individual annual campaign commitment between $3,600 and $4,999 to the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.
The Chai Division is a campaign division for women who give a gift of $1,800-$4,999 to the Annual Campaign.
The 2015 UJFT Women’s Division is instituting a new level of women’s leadership giving! We’re very excited to introduce the Golda Meir Society for women at the $1000+ level of individual giving. Our new Golda’s will be listed as such in the Annual Report’s Honor Roll of Donors and be invited to attend an end of campaign women’s event. The Society benefits are still being determined and we’ll update this site as soon as they are finalized.
