A Sacred Oath for JNET Members


By Jackie Mendelson

Chairperson, JNET National Board of Directors


At a Bel Air chapter meeting, I was privileged to hear Rabbi David Woznica of Stephen Wise Temple speak about the influence of Jewish core values on our professional lives. I will paraphrase his message: “The rabbis of our Talmud tell us that when we stand before God in heaven for judgment of our lives, the very first question we will be asked is ‘Did you conduct your business honestly?’ This question is about more than business, it is about the value of integrity. If someone can be honest in business, they can be honest in friendship, in love, in all they do. If they have integrity, it passes to all they touch. If we are faithful with our fellow human beings, we can be faithful to God.”


There is no judge or jury in JNET to determine who among us conducts himself with integrity. It is blind faith that every member of JNET ascribes to the basic tenets of fairness, honesty, and respect for self and others. We are an inclusive organization and welcome Jewish business professionals without vetting individuals to determine character or reputation. Nor do we monitor how business is conducted amongst our members. We provide a positive environment for members to cultivate relationships in hopes of referring business and increasing business.


JNET’s great success is determined by the satisfaction of our members and the business experiences we have with each other. Sometimes we, as members, deliver impeccably and sometimes we fall short. We are, after all, humans and fallible. We must consider conducting ourselves with honesty and credibility a sacred oath to each other.


Should there ever be a time when any of these values come into question while doing business with a JNET member, please go to that individual directly for resolution. Please take the time to express your expectations and concerns and hear what is being said in response. If you are not satisfied, please determine what your recourse is and take action on your behalf outside of the JNET arena.


Talking disparagingly about any person or business to another JNET member or attempting to bring JNET into any conflict goes against the JNET culture. Our time is better spent investing in our success and the success of others.
