The Jewish-Black Business Alliance is a group of Chicago-area business and civic leaders intent on forming an enriched, shared community using business as a common platform.

Watch a video from our inaugural event at The Museum of Contemporary Art.


The Jewish-Black Business Alliance (“JBBA”) is comprised of business and civic leaders who come together for the purpose of fostering sustainable business relationships between the Jewish and Black communities through meetings, commerce, and travel. Our mission is to create a bridge that transcends our differences and establishes new relationships based on mutual interests, respect and trust. The resulting community is culturally and commercially enhanced, building a solid foundation for those who follow.
