Nosh, schmooze, and make business connections at a meeting of the 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.
The meeting's featured speakers are JNET members Peter Steinberg and Kelli Tabb of Steinberg & Spencer Injury Lawyers on “How Accident Victims Can Get Fair Treatment from Insurance Companies” and Larry Freedman of Dynamic Nursing Services on “The State of the In-Home Nursing Industry.” In addition, each attendee will have the opportunity to give a 30-second introduction about their business.
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 11 JNET chapters.
The goal is to help 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 JNET meetings, and each chapter definitely has its own personality.
JNET Santa Monica meetings throughout 2013 are scheduled on the following Wednesday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m.: June 12, July 10, August 14, September 11, October 9, November 13, and December 11.

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, Pacific Palisades, 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.
