Federation’s Lions of Judah spend an ‘Afternoon on the Town’



The Jewish Federation Lions of Judah recently spent “An Afternoon on the Town.” The women made a special visit to Philadelphia for lunch at Matthew Cahn’s new restaurant, Middle Child, followed by a stop at the National Museum of American Jewish History to see the “Leonard Bernstein: Power of the Music Exhibit.” This is the first large-scale exhibition to explore how Bernstein grappled with his own Jewish, political, and sexual identity, and his response to the political crises of his day through social activism. Lion of Judah is an international sisterhood of thousands of women who demonstrate their dedication to the Jewish community by contributing their time and resources and by making a minimum annual commitment to the JFund Campaign of $5,000. For more information about becoming a Lion of Judah, contact Martha Karasick at (856) 751-9500, ext. 1291 or mkarasick@jfedsnj.org.
