Real Estate, Sustainability and Finance in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is stepping up as a global leader in real estate, finance and environmental sustainability, setting ambitious standards for water, solar, waste, and green buildings. Small businesses are forming around this areas and working to push the city toward achieving excellence in every area. Jewish wisdom has always had a thoughtful and distinct perspective on the environment, real estate, finance and entrepreneurship, promoting a human sense of responsibility for our earth. 


On Monday night students from UCLA, USC, and CSUN will expand their minds, professional networks, and souls with LA real estate, sustainability, and finance leaders.
