Build Lasting Professional Relationships with Jewish Clients

If you have Jewish clients and aim to strengthen these relationships – or would like to learn more about the Bay Area Jewish community and our philanthropy – we can help.

This is an invitation-only event and advance registration is required to attend. The program is intended for non-Jewish professional advisors.

Like you, we have built our success on providing informed counsel and making multi-generational connections. Join us for lunch and learn some basics to help you cultivate stronger relationships with your Jewish clients in a light, enjoyable way, focusing on the core values that guide our approach to giving. Gain knowledge about the Bay Area Jewish community, Jewish holidays and lifecycle events, and our philanthropic services.

This program includes lunch catered by Oren’s Hummus, complimentary parking, and a free pass to the Palo Alto JCC Fitness Center.
