Applying Rabbinic Wisdom to Assessing Your Business
It's not easy both climbing the tree and tending to the soil below. Yet, it's critical. As summer winds down, take some time to assess how, in the coming year, you can improve your business dealings and relationships holistically - from the inside out.
We're always fine-tuning our external marketing efforts, sales strategy, business connections, and so forth. Yet, we all have internal mechanisms that need fine-tuning, too. Our principles and intentions drive our behaviors, and, in turn, our successes. It is important to check in with ourselves from time to time to cultivate the foundation from which we advance, expand, and excel.
JNET's Rabbi Series is honored to have words of wisdom from Sinai Temple’s distinguished rabbis on topics that, with practice, can encourage what's best in us to emerge. Set aside a few minutes to gain insight from these special teachings:

New JNET Leaders
We are excited to announce several new leaders, who joined JNET's Board and chapter leadership this summer, bringing their wealth of talent and expertise to JNET.
JNET welcomes two new Board members:
Jackson Schwartz, Associate Vice President and Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley, brings to the Board his specialized knowledge and experience that will keep us moving forward with our professionalism and service to our members.
Josh Lampel, a Residential Mortgage Loan Officer of Skyline Home Loans brings to the Board his experience in client consulting and working to get optimum results, and we are excited to have him join the Board.
JNET also welcomes two new Chapter Presidents:
Nancy Spear, of Nancy's Tech Help for Older Adults, brings to JNET her tremendous knowledge and experience in advising and supporting others, including as a JNET Mentor for many years. JNET is very excited to have Nancy leading the JNET Culver City chapter.
Joel Wolk, of Keller Williams, brings to meetings his skilled leadership - and good humor. We are delighted to have Joel leading the JNET Thousand Oaks chapter.
JNET cannot express enough its gratitude for the many years of service and guidance given by outgoing presidents Prissi Cohen of JNET Culver City and Steve Marche of JNET Thousand Oaks. Thank you for everything you have done to guide and grow these chapters over the years.

JNET in the News
JNET’s “How Jews Schmooze” ad will appear in the September 8 issue of the Jewish Journal. We have had great response to our ad, which continues to help us build our membership as well as our recognition in the community. We are grateful to JNET Board Member Judy Robitschek of robi-chex graphic designproduction who designed this eye-catching advertisement.
Volunteering is the best way to develop deeper relationships, get known by JNET’s leaders and members and strengthen personal and business connections. Please consider lending a little of your time, energy and expertise to the growth and success of JNET by taking one of the chapter positions available or considering what you can contribute to our organization on the committee or Board level. You can assist with PR or the functionality of our website, help chapters fill their speaker slots, be on the Social Committee and help plan our mixers—or fill a void that is yet to be discovered.
If you are interested in serving on a JNET committee, please contact Judi Lirman, Chair of the Nominating Committee, at 818-939-7098 or JudiMFT@gmail.com.
Under JNET's rules and regulations, members can speak at a chapter meeting twice a year (every 181 days) but not at the same chapter in the same calendar year. In the past, JNET’s Board of Directors has given special dispensation to new and smaller chapters that are enthusiastic about growing their membership but are meeting with some obstacles in getting speakers to sign up. The Board is allowing them to have members speak without breaking the two-time speaking rule. The Board is giving this dispensation to the JNET South Bay, Tarzana AM, and Thousand Oaks chapters for a period of six months in the 2017 calendar year. For more information, contact JNET South Bay President Eran Conforty at 917-349-1695 or firstname.lastname@example.org, Tarzana AM President Phil Blum at 323-823-2479 or email@example.com or Thousand Oaks President Joel Wolk at 805-931-6683 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any other questions, please contact Judi Lirman, JNET Vice Chair, at 818-939-7098 or JudiMFT@gmail.com.
