Business Dear Readers, “It’s not personal, it’s strictly business,” Michael Corleone says to his brother Sonny in The Godfather. A renowned line from the famous film, it is exactly the opposite of what the articles in this section on business emphasize. For those featured, their businesses are very personal. Consider, for example, our cover story on Karen Jaffe’s remarkable life-saving product, StarChase. Based in Virginia Beach, this company’s technology is literally changing police pursuits across the nation. And Jaffe, rightly so, feels good about its impact. A co-chair of UJFT’s Business & Legal Society, Faith Jacobson’s article on the Society’s programs and efforts highlights its personal nature, which goes along with B&L’s mission: “…to connect Jewish professionals to build a foundation for the future, foster a heightened sense of community, and strengthen the mission of the UJFT.” Business and legal professionals who are not already members might want to join after reading her piece. Several area Jewish business professionals were recently honored for their volunteerism, their fundraising efforts and their success at providing good places for their employees to work. Mazel Tov to them and to those who work with these award-winning leaders! Check our community recognition piece on page 25. Did you know that Kind Snacks, maker of Kind bars, is owned by a Jewish man who grew up in Mexico City? Daniel Lubetzky is all about goodwill and kindness, and so his company donates $10,000 each month to a social cause. Now, that’s personal. Whatever your business philosophy, whatever your taste in movies, we hope you enjoy this section.

have had the privilege to serve on the Business & Legal (B&L) steering committee since February of 2012. Over the last several years, I have met and worked with professionals from different fields, many of whom have become personal friends. I have witnessed a steady growth within the membership of our Society and a focus on the primary mission of the B&L Society, which is to connect Jewish professionals to build a foundation for the future, foster a heightened sense of community, and strengthen the mission of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. For me, this “networking” group has been both personally and professionally rewarding. While it is common for people to scoff at just another networking group, what makes the UJFT B&L Society unique is our mission: to develop a sense of community. We do this while knowing that our annual contributions to UJFT are not only enriching the lives within our own community, but are also providing relief and support to people throughout the world. Incredibly exciting to see the diversity grow in our Society, it is especially gratifying to observe younger professionals joining to build their own careers and businesses, as well as to have the opportunity to meet and gain the wisdom of more seasoned professionals. One of our younger and enthusiastic members, David Calliott, an investment associate at Davenport & Company told me, “I joined B&L to try and network and grow my business, while also learning from other Jewish professionals who have been successful. There are a lot of smart and successful people in the Jewish community and those are the types of people I like to surround myself with.” The increase in membership is certainly, due in part, to the B&L Society’s fantastic and unique events. In addition

to fun social events, the B&L Society addresses significant and relevant topics that are pertinent to our Tidewater Jewish community, the entire Tidewater area, and the worldwide community. Some past events include: • Harbor Park dinner and baseball event where Ken Young, president of the Norfolk Tides and Norfolk Admirals and Jeff Cogen, Norfolk native and CEO of the Nashville Predators & Bridgestone Arena, led a discussion about the proposed new arena and professional basketball team in Virginia Beach. • Luncheon and private tour of Norfolk’s NorVA by owner, Rick Mersel, and discussion during which Andrew Mendolson, the Platinum-selling, Grammy-winning top music mastering engineer, spoke about his journey from growing up in the Norfolk Jewish community to building a successful Nashville company, The Georgetown Masters studio, and working with such artists as Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, and the Rolling Stones. • The B&L Society periodically hosts events in conjunction with the Maimonides Society, such as the “Kickoff the Summer Wine Social” held at the home of Gary and Jessica Kell. This was an opportunity to mingle in an intimate setting while enjoying a professional sommelier’s selections of fine wines including Kosher and Mevushal wines and pairings with heavy hors d’oeurvres. • A lunch discussion and private tour of the Israeli company, ZIM USA’s North American Headquarters in Norfolk by Lea Bogatch-Genossar, vice president of the North American and Caribbean branch of ZIM Integrated Shipping Services. In 2013, Bogatch-Genossar was named


Business “Person of the Year by the New York/ New Jersey Foreign Freight Forwarders and Brokers Association” (a very uncommon recognition afforded a woman in that industry). • A luncheon to discuss the global implications of a nuclear Iran with Mark Dubowitz, executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington, D.C. based nonpartisan policy institute foundation. An expert on Iran and sanctions, Dubowitz offered an insiders’ look at the talks, the outcome, and the global implications. • Ira Forman, State Department Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat AntiSemitism, spoke about the Rising Tide of Global Anti-Semitism: A Resurgence of Evil. Forman provided his expert knowledge and insight into today’s increasing anti-Semitism around the world. • “Israel and Virginia: Where Food and Health Intersect,” was another social and educational event held with the Maimonides Society where a demonstration of how Israel and Virginia are leading the health and sustainable food movement through a new and innovative company, Clearfarma, a Life Science Incubator with bases in Israel and Richmond.

This valuable tool allows one to easily find Jewishowned businesses and attorneys within Tidewater. A Directory Launch Party was held at Gordon Biersch. • “Ride the Tide” was a fun and relevant event in which a group rode the Tide (some of whom, like me, for the first time) from the Newtown Road Station to the office of S.L. Nusbaum in Norfolk. We heard from Dave Hansen, Deputy City Manager for the City of Virginia

As the B&L Society moves forward, we will continue to bring the best opportunities to meet, greet, and have a great time, as well as to stay aware of our global temper. We are here to connect Jewish professionals in business and law in an effort to

build a foundation for the future. We will continue to foster and promote business relationships between our members and the community. Events for 2016 include a Passover Wine Tasting at the oceanfront in February. For more information about the Business & Legal Society, contact Alex Pomerantz at 757‑965-6136 or apomerantz@ujft.org.

how Jew-centric his upbringing was. He was playing with a friend. “I said something like ‘If you don’t stop doing that, I’m going to kick your tuchas.’ And he said, ‘What is tuchas?’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’” Lubetzky recalls. “I thought tuchas was a word in Spanish.” Thus a desire to build bridges between communities was born. As an undergrad at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, Lubetzky wrote a thesis on how economic cooperation could bring nation-states— such as Israel and its surrounding Arab neighbors—closer together. “If you had asked me when I was in law school or in college or as a kid, ‘Is Daniel going to be running a food company?’ I would tell you you’re cuckoo,” Lubetzky says. “What I was going to be doing was representing Israel at the United Nations.” But after law school at Stanford, Lubetzky received a $10,000 fellowship given out by the Bay Area’s Jewish federation to pursue economic research in Israel and attempt to foster joint Arab-Israeli ventures. One day in a grocery store, he came across a jar of sundried tomato spread that he devoured in one sitting. When he went back to buy more, he was told that there was none left because the company was going out of business. Recognizing an opportunity, Lubetzky tracked down the spread’s manufacturer, Yoel Benesh, who was using expensive jars and other imported materials from Europe. Lubetzky convinced him to work with local Palestinian farmers and an Arab glass manufacturer in Egypt. Lubetzky and Benesh built up the

company and turned it into PeaceWorks, which still sells tapenades and sauces today. Its trademark: “Cooperation Never Tasted So Good!” As Lubetzky describes in amusing detail in his book, his efforts to expand PeaceWorks did not go as he expected. At one point in the 1990s, he wound up having to store thousands of unsold boxes of Dead Sea mineral ointments in his small Manhattan studio apartment. “What kept me going was my sense of mission: I was in this to build a footing for peace,” Lubetzky wrote. “I had to help my Israeli, Arab, and Turkish partners. Failure was not an option.” Years later Lubetzky came up with the idea for the minimalist fruit and nut Kind bars—one of the first products to eschew the “paste” formula of other snack bars— while craving a filling snack that could sustain him through his training for the New York Marathon in 2002. He said his early obstacles with PeaceWorks helped him learn that the quality of a product is more important than the social mission of a business. Kind does not outwardly promote its charity work as publicly as it pushes its products’ taste and health value; the company touts its clear packaging as proof that customers can see the wholesome ingredients inside. Authenticity is the main thing that should drive a business and its mission, Lubetzky says. “If [companies] can find something that they can really authentically do to make this a better world, why not?” he says. “But you have to really have a huge asterisk there—it has to be authentic.”

Gene Ross honored with the 2015 Corporate VOLUNTEER Leadership Award

V

OLUNTEER Hampton Roads, in partnership with Inside Business and the Hampton Roads Corporate VOLUNTEER Council, pays tribute each year to businesses and individuals who are dedicated to volunteer service. This year’s Corporate VOLUNTEER Leadership Award recipient is Gene Ross, Gene Ross president of LoanCare LLC. Ross was selected for his “exceptional dedication and vision in leading LoanCare’s outstanding corporate social responsibility program,” according to a news release. “I am not surprised that Gene has been honored with the 2015 Corporate Volunteer Award,” says Harry Graber, executive vice president of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. “His activities in the Jewish community, including among many, serving as past president of the Simon Family JCC and as a member of the Simcha Campaign steering committee, always

indicated to me that Gene was committed to the finest teachings and traditions of our people. He lives his Jewish values and is a role model for all in our community,” says Graber. In addition to his roles in the Jewish community, Ross serves on the Board of Governors of the Chesapeake Bay Wine Classic Foundation, and as a past board member for YMCA Camp Silver Beach. He also participates as a guest lecturer at Florida State University where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration.

Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C. honored by Virginia Business magazine: Best Places to Work 2016

F

or the fifth consecutive year, Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C. (WEC) was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of “Best Jeff Chernitzer, Alvin Wall and Marty Einhorn Places to Work” was created by Virginia Business magazine and Best Companies Group. This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, its work force and businesses. Among their many volunteer efforts, the three founding partners, Marty Einhorn, Alvin Wall and Jeff Chernitzer are active members of the Jewish community. Einhorn currently serves as president of the Simon Family JCC and is on the audit and finance committees for the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. In addition, he has coached youth basketball at the Simon Family JCC for 14 years. Wall is a past president of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and its treasurer. He chairs the Sandler Family Campus governing committee. He is vice chair of the Tidewater Jewish Foundation and chairman of its grants committee. Chernitzer is a past board member of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and Beth Sholom Home. He also served as a B’nai Brith Youth Organization advisor. “I am not surprised that Wall, Einhorn and Chernitzer continues to be honored by Virginia Business magazine as a Best Place to Work. I have known the three men for many years and have seen how their interactions with others are permeated by a concern for dignity, respect and compassion. Therefore, it makes sense that these qualities also characterize their leadership in the workplace. I know I speak for the Tidewater Jewish community when I say congratulations and Kol Hakovod,” remarks Harry Graber, UJFT executive vice-president.

Panama and Israel sign free trade agreement

P

anama signed a free trade agreement with Israel, its first with a Middle Eastern nation. The agreement was signed last month in Panama City to seal a set of negotiated deals including access to markets, customs, services and investments, intellectual property, trade obstacles, institutional issues and conflict resolution. “This is our very first agreement with a Middle Eastern partner and hence it represents important opportunities to Panamanian exporters and businessmen. It has a vast coverage of goods, services and investment,” said Meliton Arrocha, Panama’s minister of trade and industries. A special chapter of the agreement also intends to boost the capabilities and competitiveness of the Central American nation’s small- and medium-sized companies in innovation and technology transfer fields, he added. “The agreement is expected to serve as another springboard for Israeli service providers—especially in software, communication, information security, engineering and R&D—thus expanding the potential of this and related markets,” Israel’s Ministry of Economy spokesman said in May. The negotiations are part of efforts by Israel to expand its exports to new markets and strengthen relations with Latin American countries. Israeli exports to Panama in 2014 stood at $25 million and imports from Panama at $3 million, according to the Israel’s Ministry of Economy.
