"The first time I saw someone wearing a Lion of Judah pin, I thought it was pretty but I hadn’t a clue what it meant… It took me a while, but I realized that the pin was a symbol of some deeper value … that the women who wore these pins felt strongly and passionately about this symbol and about those values…
It is so striking to see women proudly wear this symbol of the Lion of Judah, a representation of the values that you believe in and act upon daily…
When you wear the symbol of Judah, a lion, you have stepped forward. You have taken responsibility for your brothers and sisters – other Jews around the world. You have offered to give of yourselves in order to save your brothers and sisters near and far and your actions reunite our Jewish family from the four corners of the earth. Thus, you are role models for the responsibility of one Jew to another. You are Judah, and you rightly wear his symbol..."
