The Talmud teaches, “Honor not a person for their possessions alone; honor them for the right use they make of them.” The Foundation of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation (The Foundation) is proud to recognize individuals and families who have created a lasting Jewish legacy. These generous endowment gifts help to secure our Jewish future and help ensure that Jewish life remains vibrant in Miami, in Israel and around the world.
The following recognition groups have been established to express gratitude to The Foundation's valued donors.
Members of the Heritage Society are proud trustees of the future of our Jewish community. They have created a permanent endowment of $100,000 or more through The Foundation. All new Heritage Society members receive the prestigious Heritage Society Mezuzah in recognition of their outstanding commitment to the Jewish people. Special events presented by both The Foundation and Federation enable like-minded philanthropists to meet one another and share ideas.
Heritage Society members are also eligible for the benefits of the Golden Care Foundation, a unique service for elderly individuals or couples who may receive little or no social support but seek to live independently. Read more about Golden Care.
Star of David Society
The Star of David Society is a national honor society created by The Jewish Federations of North America (formerly UJC and UJA) to recognize the extraordinary contributions of those who create a Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) of $200,000 or more, or any permanent endowment of $500,000 or more. Star of David Society members are also members of the Heritage Society.
Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) Society
The Foundation proudly acknowledges women who have endowed their Lion of Judah with a commitment of $100,000 or more, ensuring that their legacy of love for the Jewish people will be carried forward for future generations. The Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) perpetuates a Lion of Judah-level gift to the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign. LOJE women proudly wear a gold flame on their Lion pin that symbolizes their commitment to ensure Jewish continuity and growth. They are also members of the Heritage Society and eligible for Golden Care.
