"It’s not just a conference about business, and it’s not just a conference about halacha. It’s a conference about purpose that's catered to frum businessmen," says Ari Aragon, referring to the annual H3 Business Halacha Summit that was held this month in Illinois.
A LinkedUp business member with AAA Lion Real Estate, Ari attended the Summit with a Colorado group together with Rabbi Yossi Kaplan, Director of Agudah of Colorado, Rabbi Moshe Heyman, Director of Denver Community Kollel, Rabbi A.Y. Wasserman, CEO of Yeshiva Toras Chaim, and Dov Ort of Peaks Healthcare Consulting.
Hosted by Agudah of Illinois, the Summit is an invaluable opportunity for frum businessmen to network with hundreds of professionals from around the country, learn about relevant halacha affecting day-to-day business, and be inspired by Rabbonim and top industry leaders. In the words of Dov Ort, the Summit is "educational, inspiring, and well-organized".
Rabbi Kaplan reflects on the importance of a conference like this. "H3 has been a tremendous source of growth for me and the Colorado group," he says. "It's a place where we hear from world-renowned Rabbonim, raise our level of Business Halacha awareness, and gain fundamental chizuk by being with hundreds of like-minded growing businessmen, who have built a life of Torah values through giving, supporting, and living a Torah-centered life. The important networking and 1-on-1 meetings we've had with community-minded businessmen from around the country are also hugely impactful.
At the Summit, we made valuable connections and discussed ideas and initiatives for both community and business growth in Colorado, including our new business networking and business-building program, LinkedUp. Today, the day after the conference, the work is just beginning."
