Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, President and CEO, RespectAbility 
Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi is co-founder and president of RespectAbility, a nonprofit organization working to enable people with disabilities to have a better future. Dyslexic herself, she also knows what it means to parent a child with multiple disabilities. Previously Mizrahi worked as a Democratic Party spokesperson, co-founded and led The Israel Project, the DCJCC Community Services Program, and her own consulting company. The co-founder/director of The Mizrahi Family Charitable Foundation, she has been involved with the UJA and is a longtime Lion of Judah.

The Lion of Judah represents the strength and caring of today’s Jewish woman, and in Boston it serves as a symbol of her financial commitment of at least $5,000 to CJP’s Annual Campaign. More than 17,500 women worldwide and more than 360 women in Greater Boston are Lions of Judah.

Women’s Philanthropy continues its initiative to enable women to take the first step toward becoming Lions. We ask women to commit to increasing their gifts over the course of two to three years to achieve the Lion of Judah giving level.

Setting up a Lion of Judah Endowment enables a Lion to support CJP’s Annual Campaign in perpetuity. LOJE is a powerful statement of a woman’s commitment to tzedakah (charity), providing a legacy for herself, her family, and her community.
