Event will also honor volunteer first responders and celebrate paper’s 10th anniversary

On Wednesday, February 16, the Queens Jewish Link, in partnership with its sister publication the Bukharian Jewish Link, will host an evening of networking, open to all community members. “In addition to current events and Torah perspectives, our newspapers offer financial opportunities for readers,” explained Yaakov Serle, co-publisher of the publications. “As the effects of the pandemic settle, more and more locals require new means to sustain their families. This networking event takes on added meaning as it very well may help bolster our local families and business.”

The free, two-hour event in the social hall of the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills, from 7-9 p.m., will empower business owners to connect with one another. It will also empower those seeking employment to connect to potential employers.

To keep job prospects as the focal point of the evening, there will be no formal speeches; there will be ample refreshments to keep conversation flowing. There will also be an opportunity to converse with local elected officials and share your concerns. The event was made possible by a conglomerate of notable corporate, media, and organizational sponsors.

The event will also honor local volunteer first responders, who were more vital than ever in the past few years, in the face of new challenges. “For three years now, our communities have seen the self-sacrificing efforts of a host of communal volunteer organizations. Our readership has been privileged to read just some of these stories; nonetheless, our need to say thank you goes well further. The QJL has taken the opportunity of the evening to thank our volunteer first responders,” explained Serle. “We encourage first responders to share in this moment.”

The event will also celebrate the paper’s tenth anniversary.
