Tribal Networking

It's Better to Give Than Receive, But What Goes around Comes Around!™

To forge a virtually cost-free partnership steeped in the spirit of fraternity (or sorority as the case may be) that goes beyond matters of immediate concern. This spirit is best served by fostering a climate characterized by Gotham's mantra. Said another way we are all non-salaried, non-commissioned sales people for each other! Thus, we seek to create a family/tribal environment stimulating mutual growth: business, social, creative, intellectual, artistic, charitable or otherwise. Our endeavors should enrich each participant through altruistic acts undertaken with a genuine concern for the welfare of our fellow networkers and the world.

We bring together service-oriented professionals in complementary fields to share not only contacts, but also ideas and resources. Learn more

I had the poignant experience of attending Gotham member Jack Friedman's funeral last Sunday. It was so well attended that the room was overflowing with humanity. My impression of the man was confirmed by the eulogies of his friends, relatives, wife and children. He was a very decent, friendly, nice, giving, collegial man. Driving home, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Freebird was on the radio and the combination of the funeral experience and the words of that singular piece got me thinking...

          Corey_Bearak wrote 7 Days Ago  
        (I posted this message on Fredslist last night but it really belong on the Gotham Wall as well so please indulge me) I - and all of Gotham - lost a very dear and good friend Thursday, April 9. Jack Friedman, executive director of the Queens Chamber of Commerce, passed away earlier today just days short of his 56th birthday, this Sunday when many will gather in his memory to celebrate his life of giving. Jack's funeral takes place, Sunday, April 12, 12:30 p.m. At Parkside Memorial Chapels 98-60 Queens Boulevard, Rego Park 11374 (Updated from Fredlist post) Jack's brother in-law, Steve Denkberg shared that Shiva will commence after the funeral on Sunday at Jack's house (email me if you need the address) until 9:00 p.m. It will continue on Monday through Thursday 2:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and conclude on Friday 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (also updated since my Fredslist post) Since I received inquiries in and out of Gotham, Steve advised that people can contribute in Jack's memory to The American Diabetes Association and/ or The National Kidney Foundation. (end updates) Jack and I have known each other some three decades. His most distinguishing feature -- and I am sure more than a few others will attest to this -- putting family, friends, colleagues and the public before himself. Before he joined the chamber he took a job that I had turned down at the recommendation of the previous job holder. Jack took the gig and tamed the elected (at least for as long as he worked there). I personally recruited Jack to serve as a trustee of my (Northeast Queens) Jewish Community Council knowing he could be the president who could succeed our common friend Jeff Gurdus (also of blessed memory); Jack performed admirably. Jack was the field general of my lone race for public office (that I try not to recall); its lack of success was not on him. We both rebounded the following year each gaining election to NYC's premier Community School Board serving district 26 in 1989. I called it doing time; it was several night meetings a week. For some reason Jack chose to endure it until legislature abolished the boards and impose mayoral control. I thought I took the smarter route serving one term. Jack stayed on and colleagues made him President and he got locked up in that no-pay all give position for five years until until they shut down the school boards. Of course no respite for this guy, he helped the BBYO that our daughter were active in and Bellerose Jewish Center exists today because of his smarts and ability to make sound deals. Lately we served together on The board of a senior agency, SNAP, where this year we recruited two new Gotham members - Susan Cohen and Mindy Stern - to join us on the board. Jack introduced me to Tom Grech who is now a member of Gotham Green. I brought Jack a few years back to Gotham Towers. He joined our tribe and has been an invaluable connector for so many of us. Gotham enjoys a nice partnership with the chamber. When I attended a chamber committee meeting it was rare that we did not meet after in his office to chat on not just chamber matters but politics -- Jack was perhaps the penultimate political junkie, family and music -- his was into Springsteen and Southside Johnny the way I love Poco and John Fogerty; we attended a Bruce show at the Meadowlands of course, and a few summer back The Good Rat. We never coined a name like the Travelin' Wilburys for our drives long or short but I know I'll miss the chats. And through all that he was a good dad and husband. Jack, we miss you friend.
