On Sept. 27, 100 men and women joined the Jewish Federation Real Estate (JFRE) group at its first recruitment event for professionals who are entering or relatively new to the real estate field for networking, food and drinks at the Independence Beer Garden. According to Rachel Sigman, senior development officer at the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and JFRE lead staff, approximately half of the attendees were new to JFRE. “The event chairs, Andrew Zakroff and Mark Krantz, put a lot of effort into inviting people representing diverse areas of real estate who are starting out in their careers and knew little to nothing about JFRE.”
Attendees spent time with members of JFRE’s Executive Committee and Program Committee as well as other seasoned real estate professionals to learn how joining JFRE can grow their careers, while also benefiting the Jewish community. For young professionals ages 21 to 45 who become JFRE members, their donation to either the JFRE Fund or the Jewish Community Fund or a combination of the two also qualifies them for Ben-Gurion Society programming through NextGen, the Jewish Federation’s young professionals division. To further attract younger members, JFRE also launched a new initiative inviting individuals under age 30 to participate in two Jewish Federation community service projects, entitling them to complimentary admission to JFRE’s annual Legends and Leaders event in the spring.  For more information on JFRE, contact Rachel Sigman at 215-832-0513 or rsigman@jewishphilly.org, or visit jewishphilly.org/jfre.
