The Young Jewish Professionals Hold Their Winter Gala

by HANNAH LAWRENCE · February 1, 2010

On Saturday, some of the city's "trendiest and most successful Jews" gathered at Espace to celebrate Tu B'Svhat (or "The New Year of Trees"), and to catch a live performance by Blue Fringe.

Attendees included Seth Greenberg (Who received the Leadership Award), Richie Akivia, EMM Group's Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, TAO owner Mark Packer, composer Anat Cohen, hip-hop violinist Miri-Ben Ari, amd The Blue Note's Danny Bensusan. But where was JRL?? Is he not a Jewish Young Professional?

The YJP works to create and advance business opportunities in New York for the city's young and Jewish inhabitants. The organization is also dedicated towards bettering theĀ surrounding communities by having its members participate in networking, volunteering, and various forms of philanthropy.
