Los Angeles Jewish Chamber of Commerce

About the Chamber

Welcome to the Chamber

Letter from President:

Dear Members and Friends of the Chamber,

As we enter our 5th year, our vision has stayed the same: to bring together Jewish Businesses and Professionals from all over Los Angeles County in order to help each of us grow our business, and help the Jewish Business community thrive. Through the years we have hosted over 50 unique mixers at amazing locations around town, We have hosted nearly as many Small Business Alliance luncheons and developed strong relationships with Jewish Community partners. 2012 marked our 3rd annual joint mixer with the Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles with our Gran Tamalada & Potato Latkes Mixer, and we look forward to our 4th annual mixer this December. This year we plan to improve the chamber and have taken great steps to achieve our goal. We have hired David Nemetz as our Executive Director with the main goal of increasing member value. We have rolled out new membership benefits while creating new opportunities for business promotion.

Please take advantage of some of our benefits including: Networking Mixers, SBA Lunches, Member to Member Discounts, Email & Event Sponsorships, Human Resource Forms and much more.

We have installed a guest pass program so our members can invite first-time guests to our events to help introduce our events to more potential members. Finally, we are improving our Biz-Match program and our Member to Member discount offers. Our Chamber relies on the success and engagement of our members; lease support each other, join a committee and get involved.

I wish you all a successful year and hope to see you at an upcoming event!

See you soon,

JeffSignature
President and Chairman of the Board

I love the chamber. I have been a member for the last 3 years and I feel that when I come to the meetings - I come HOME. The people who come to the events are professional and I love to work with them. I get business from and give business to chamber members. I always recommend the chamber to my friends and my customers.

The LA Jewish Chamber is a great networking organization. I am impressed by the quality of the members and the events. I have already made a number of clients and look forward to years of membership

After a year of membership and two years prior to that as an attendee at functions, 
I can honestly say that being a member has paid off. While no one should expect to 
find a paying customer at their first event, the relationships made over a period of time do 
yield fruit. The first connections may not be the ones with whom you do business, but 
once relationships are solidified with them, the referrals can come in numbers. As a 
networking organization, I heartily recommend the LAJCC for its quality of 
membership, programs and continuing member relations and referrals. I'm about 
to renew my membership and would not if it weren't a worthwhile investment.
