The North Jersey Jewish Business Alliance, formerly the Hudson County Jewish Business Alliance, held its third annual legislative and business luncheon at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark. The meeting also marked the group’s name change. By providing a comprehensive network for Jewish business owners to expand their reach, the alliance also has expanded and now includes the greater North Jersey area. It also has assembled a board of prominent business leaders to ensure its continued success.
David Rosenberg, the NJJBA’s founder and executive director, thanked the crowd. With great pride, he said “In Judaism, anything repeated three times becomes… permanent.”
Celebrating its third annual legislative luncheon, the alliance has worked to assist businesses in their decision-making process, and to connect them not only with other business executives, but also with distinguished and influential New Jersey officials and legislative leaders.
