Meeting and Mixer
Nosh, schmooze, and make business connections at a meeting of the new Santa Monica chapter of JNET®, the Jewish Business Networking Organization. JNET Santa Monica meetings are hosted each month by the Sisterhood of Kehillat Ma’arav Synagogue.
Members include a diverse cross-section of professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, executives, and tradespeople from the private and public sectors.
There is no cost to attend the first two meetings and no reservation is required. Annual JNET membership is $85, which includes a featured speaking opportunity every six months and the opportunity to attend the meetings of all 10 JNET chapters.
Meetings consist of member presentations, 30-second introductions for all participants, business tips, and refreshments.
According to Realtor Susan Stone, public relations director of JNET, “The goal of each member is to help other people grow their businesses. It is similar to a chamber of commerce, but smaller, everybody is Jewish, and we meet at temples. There’s a warm, helpful feeling at our meetings, and each chapter definitely has its own personality.”
The next JNET Santa Monica meeting is scheduled for Sunday, April 14, at 9 a.m.

JNET’s goal is to be the premiere professional networking organization within the Jewish community. As a membership-based organization, JNET® is committed to serving the needs of its increasing membership and facilitating the growth of business relationships throughout the Jewish community.
JNET® began in 2005 in Southern California as a way for local Jewish business owners to network and support each other’s businesses. Currently there are chapters in Bel Air, Conejo, Northridge, Santa Clarita, Santa Monica, Tarzana, Valley Village, Ventura, West Hills, and Woodland Hills. In 2011, its Board of Directors approved a plan to expand JNET throughout the United States. For more information, visit www.jnetonline.org.
