Who Are We? 

We are Arizona Jewish Business Network – a Jewish Entrepreneurial Chavurah that is dedicated to enhancing your business efforts through local, meaningful Jewish relationships.  This, in its essence, is what sets us apart from other business networks, other breakfast/lunch/happy hour groups – we seek to serve the community by developing connections with each other, assisting in the development or promotion of our businesses, and engaging in philanthropic acts of tzedakah.

Jewish Moment?

Audrey Jung read from Rabbi Sacks’ article:  Sukkot In A Nutshell.  The article discussed the various interpretations of the Sukkah from sages in our Pirkei Avot.  Read the article here:  https://rabbisacks.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/CC-Succot-FINAL.pdf

Michele Swetesich-Leon shared an article – 8 Powerful Sales Questions to Ask


In response to a question raised previously about returning to in-person lunchtime meetings, the Executive Board reported that they discussed the issue online and agree that although many of us would like to meet, the contagion risk continues to be high.  We have many members with immune system deficiencies (or loved ones who remain compromised).  We will continue to address this issue at this time – probably bimonthly to phase in a hybrid cyber/live option for our meetings soon.  We are also pleased to have heard from our server, Zuli, that Mimi’s Cafe in Scottsdale is indeed open and would be happy to welcome us back when we are ready.

Michele Swetesich-Leon shared the updates to the JBNAZ.org website, which included some of the elevator speech recordings we created during our last meeting.  This Member Moments page will continue to be “nuanced” as we create better and better content together.
