Business & Professionals Group


The mission of the Business & Professionals Group of the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix is to strengthen relationships among Jewish professionals through education, social networking activities and communal and philanthropic engagement.


The Business and Professionals Group, which currently consists of three divisions – the Cardozo Society for legal professionals, the Real Estate & Finance Division, and Chai Tech for the technology industry — provides an opportunity to expand one’s professional and social circles while making a meaningful difference in our community. Involvement in the Business and Professionals Group means more than just connecting with other Jewish professionals. Participating in one of the Business & Professionals divisions provides an opportunity to positively impact the community. At events like speaker series, networking receptions, briefings on Israel and Jewish affairs and other special events, participants have the chance to meet like-minded, philanthropic professionals who aim to make an impact on the Jewish community in Greater Phoenix.


We would love to hear your feedback about our current Business & Professionals divisions. With your help and involvement, we hope to expand the breadth of our Jewish professional community. Please contact us if you would like to discuss the Business and Professionals divisions with the Federation staff liaison.
