At Business Impact NW, we are taking the Jewish American Heritage Month of May to acknowledge the Jewish American peoples. Connection and community have been some of the ways Jewish American small business owners have moved forward throughout history with resiliency and with pride. Jewish American small businesses have also been critical to growing our neighborhoods and keeping our cities strong, so we say take this opportunity to say thank you.
