The inaugural event of the Schmooze with Success Program took place at Pergola Management. Brian Pergament told the story of how he built Pergola from the ground up. However, the main topic of the evening was the role of tzedakah (charity) in Judaism.
JWAY’s Schmooze and Success is a new 8 month venture that a allows a small group of young adults to interact on a deeper level with leaders in the Jewish community. Participants got to ask Mr. Pergament tough questions on the obstacles he faced and how his understanding of tzedakah has evolved.
This first event was a resounding success. JWAY thanks Mr. Pergament for the hospitality and great insight that he shared with everyone who came.
