A delegation of nine Lions of Judah from Tucson attended the biennial international conference in Washington, D.C. to discuss philanthropic programs, ideas and stories of strength.

Judy Berman, a local philanthropist, has been a Lion for about 10 years. She has attended three conferences thus far but this year’s event was life-changing, she says.

“I doubled my pledge this year after realizing what good work the Lions do all over the world,” says Berman. “The conference was so uplifting and amazing, and I loved the fact that each speaker was better than the next.”
