Lion of Zion Winners 2017
Special Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lion of Zion Award
Our Lion of Zion Award winners are Israeli men and women acting from a feeling of personal responsibility, vision and national mission, each in his field, and often while sacrificing their personal welfare and even endangering their personal security.
This award is for Israeli citizens, residents of Israel, who best personify modern Zionism in Israel in their actions addressing the challenges that face Zionism today – in spheres such as education, research, settlement, culture, defense and security.
