You’re a woman who loves and appreciates your Jewish community. You’re starting to realize that you can help it thrive, and you want to be part of something bigger than yourself.

With your new or existing gift of $365—or a dollar a day—to the Minneapolis Jewish Federation Community Campaign, you’re automatically a part of this group of inspiring women who, just like you, want to make a difference. And you’ll be invited to the Women of Intention Awards.

As volunteers and leaders, women in our community play key roles in addressing critical issues—from the future of the Jewish people to the global economy; from education to the environment.

You know these women. Maybe you’ve served on boards with them, lit Shabbat candles with them, or chatted at the water cooler between meetings. Honor them for their commitment to our community with a Woman of Intention Award.

The Pearl Society’s Women of Intention awards will honor five women in our community: our Trailblazer, Flame-keeper, Woman of Promise, Voice of Inspiration, and Community Champion. These are women who respond to injustice with intention – who apply their personal grit and gifts to some of the most difficult issues facing our community and the world – who are indeed Women of Intention.

To symbolize your commitment to the community and inspire others to join, you’ll have the option of purchasing our signature Minneapolis Pearl Society necklace ($25) designed by nationally-recognized local jewelry artist and Pearl Society Recognition Co-chair Sara Goldfine.

Sara Goldfine is the designer/owner behind Goldfine Jewelry (formerly known as SBG Designs).

Why the necklace? In the words of Sara, “I want the necklace to be an everyday piece. Friends will ask about it, want to know more, and hopefully get involved with an important cause.”
