The New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance held a mission to Capitol Hill and met with government officials in Washington. As part of its Day of Advocacy in the Nation’s Capital, NJJBA members met with senior officials at the Department of Commerce, including Senator Cory Booker and Representatives Tom Malinowski (D-NJ Dist. 7), Chris Smith (R-NJ Dist. 4), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ Dist. 5), and Andy Kim (D-NJ Dist. 3), to advocate for New Jersey businesses. Participants discussed data about the economic climate, inflation, and the effect on businesses throughout the state.

The NJJBA believes in the foundational impact that direct communication with policymakers can have — officer-holders who represent us in Washington should receive feedback and input about how their work affects their constituents’ lives.

The officials told the NJJBA that they are committed to working on and prioritizing the initiatives and concerns raised, with suggestions, thoughts, concerns, and stories of how today’s difficult economy has forced businesses to alter their businesses approach.

The New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance, established in 2015, is a nonprofit organization that focuses on uplifting and supporting Jewish-owned businesses in the Garden State.
