North Jersey Jewish Busi­ness Al­liance Hosts 3nd An­nual Lun­cheon

The Jewish Voice - - NEW JERSEY -

The North Jersey Jewish Busi­ness Al­liance (NJJBA), for­merly known as the Hud­son County Jewish Busi­ness Al­liance, hosted its third an­nual leg­isla­tive and busi­ness lun­cheon at the Robert Treat Ho­tel in Ne­wark, New Jersey. Due to its in­cred­i­ble and ex­po­nen­tial suc­cess, the lun­cheon also marked the Al­liance's name change. By pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive net­work for Jewish busi­ness own­ers to ex­pand their reach, the Al­liance, too, ex­panded with tenac­ity, and now in­cludes the greater North Jersey area. The Al­liance has care­fully put to­gether a board of prom­i­nent busi­ness lead­ers to en­sure its con­tin­ued suc­cess. Af­ter a bustling net­work­ing ses­sion, the pro­gram com­menced with an in­tro­duc­tion by Ezra Fried­lan­der, Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies, as well as open­ing re­marks by Miles Berger, the Host and Chair­man of the Board. David Rosen­berg, Founder and Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the NJJBA, thanked and rec­og­nized the pres­ence of the es­teemed crowd in front of him. With great pride, Rosen­berg stated: "In Ju­daism, any­thing re­peated 3 times be­comes... per­ma­nent." Since its in­cep­tion in 2015, Rosen­berg has wanted to en­sure that North­ern Jersey is rec­og­nized as an un­par­al­leled place to live, work, and visit for the Jewish in­di­vid­ual. Cel­e­brat­ing its third an­nual leg­isla­tive lun­cheon, the Al­liance has worked hard 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. Ron­nie Sevilla, Hud­son County Re­tail Mar­ket Manager for In­vestors Bank, took the stage to in­tro­duce Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor of New Jersey Kim Guadagno. "In 2009, we had 9.9% un­em­ploy­ment, vir­tu­ally dead last in any eco­nomic in­di­ca­tor of suc­cess, peo­ple were flee­ing the state of New Jersey not by the tens of thou­sands, but by the hun­dreds of thou­sands... so long as you do the job, and you do it the best you can... and that's what I've been do­ing for the past 8 years," Lt. Gov­er­nor Guadagno ex­plained. "To­day as I stand here, we went for 9.8% un­em­ploy­ment to 4.1%. We have more peo­ple work­ing in New Jersey to­day than ever in the his­tory of the state," she beamed. Free­holder An­thony Ro­mano then pre­sented the Hud­son County Procla­ma­tion: "Hud­son County Board of Free­hold­ers would like to honor and com­mend the NJJBA on its ex­pan­sion and name change. We will al­ways be proud to rec­og­nize this or­ga­ni­za­tion, and we will work in tan­dem for the suc­cess of this or­ga­ni­za­tion." The Lead­er­ship in Ex­cel­lence Award was pre­sented to honoree As­sem­bly­man Ni­cholas Chiar­aval­loti, who serves the 31st leg­isla­tive district of New Jersey. "I'm deeply honored to re­ceive this award and recog­ni­tion. Al­though, I am more grate­ful for the sup­port and friend­ship the or­ga­ni­za­tion and so many of its mem­bers have shown me in re­cent years," said the As­sem­bly­man. Louis LaSalle, Vice Pres­i­dent for Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs of RWJ Barn­abas Health, took the podium to in­tro­duce Se­na­tor Richard Codey (D-NJ). Se­na­tor Codey, who spoke on be­half of Demo­cratic Nom­i­nee for Gov­er­nor Phil Mur­phy, of­fered poignant words: "Peo­ple want to re­late to their Pres­i­dent, their gov­er­nor, and their mayor... We've got to turn the page to a gov­er­nor that's got to lis­ten to us and do the right thing. It's not go­ing to be an easy day, but it will be a good day." The third con­sec­u­tive leg­isla­tive and busi­ness lun­cheon can only mean con­tin­ued suc­cess and growth not only for the Al­liance, but for the state of New Jersey as well. With top busi­ness ex­ec­u­tives and dis­tin­guished of­fi­cials and leg­isla­tive lead­ers work­ing to­gether, New Jersey will only ex­pe­ri­ence con­tin­ued suc­cess
