Welcome to the Network
The Network, Federation CJA's professional umbrella division, provides Montreal's Jewish businesspeople (aged 40+) with opportunities to build connections – personally, professionally and philanthropically.
Established in 2014, The Network became an amalgamation of the Builders & Real Estate, ELAN (Every Lawyer, Accountant and Notary), Financial Services, Fashion, Entrepreneurs and Health & Academia Divisions of Federation CJA. Comprised of over 2,500 loyal and dedicated existing donors to the Annual Combined Jewish Appeal, this division gives members exclusive access to general professional and industry-specific networking opportunities.
Within the Network structure there are various subdivisions that cater to specific segments within the Montreal Jewish community. In 2018, the Women in The Network (W.I.N.) was founded to provide women in the business world with the platform to meet, learn and collaborate in the context of inspirational keynote speakers, workshops and networking events.
The Young Maimonides Society of Montreal (YMSM) is a fellowship for Jewish health care professionals. This association lies at the forefront of both philanthropy and service, bringing industry-related programming, access to exclusive speakers and events and providing unique opportunities for networking outside the hospital, to the community's medical industry experts.
Together, the myriad of inspiring professionals in the Montreal Jewish community can have a huge impact as collaborators, mentors to younger generations, innovators, and beyond. The Network is thrilled to be able to provide them with a platform for the endless possibilities in both business and philanthropy.
