Jewish Business Alliance, a business networking organization, held its annual holiday luncheon Dec. 11. Each year JBA contributes to two local Jewish based organizations from funds that the group has raised over the course of the year.
This year, checks were presented to Jewish Family Service and The Legacy Senior Communities, two outstanding organizations make a difference in our community.
Now in its fourth year, JBA was founded by Mark Lowey, owner of Stonebridge Insurance Group; Jay Levine, owner of Energy Brokers of America; and Robert Fischer, owner of Custom Integrated Systems. JBA meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month at the Coffee House in North Dallas.

The positive impact of the Araon Family JCC’s fall fundraiser continues

On Thursday, Dec. 11, the past presidents of the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center hosted a luncheon to honor the staff and the committee involved in the planning and execution of the event. Not only did they cater a wonderful meal, but also they put together a small presentation complete with piano accompaniment. The staff was surprised when the presidents re-wrote the words to the “We Are The J” song they sang at J’s Got Talent, however this time they turned it around to reflect “You Are the J” to honor everything the J staff does for the community. Ashley Bundis, marketing director commented “I was truly touched by the event and felt appreciated. I know many other staff members felt the same way and that means a lot. Sometimes it’s the “little” things that go a long way. Thank you for making that happen!”
