The Jewish Professional Advisors Network (JPAN) of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati is a diverse group of Jewish professionals working in the fields of law, financial planning, insurance, taxes, or accounting. We bring people together to further our professional development, understand and build connections with community organizations, and network with one another. Started in 2014, the group has continued to grow.


JPAN is a giving society.  Members are asked to make a minimum commitment (waived for your first year) of $1,000 to the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati's Community Campaign.  Those 35 to 45 years of age are asked to commit $500; those 35 and under are asked to make a monetary donation.

  • "JPAN is great people and a welcoming community. It brings together Jewish professionals in the tri-state in a way which has enhanced my professional and personal life. The ways that we are each different, and we are each similar, strengthen the group and have taught me much. It's learning and mentoring at its best."

    —Joel S. Brant, Chair, JPAN

  • “What I love about JPAN are the people. There aren’t many opportunities for seasoned and newer young professionals to meet and learn from one another. From my perspective Cincinnati is both attracting and retaining great talent in the disciplines JPAN draws from. Everyone brings something valuable to the table. I’ve made new connections and friends through JPAN.”

    —Ken Heldman, JPAN member
