WEST ORANGE, NJ — Alan Sobel, founder of Livingston-based accounting firm Sobel & Co., was among a group of individuals that were recently honored for their philanthropic efforts at the Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) of MetroWest New Jersey’s annual Taste and Toast fundraising gala at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange.

More than $350,000 was raised to improve the life-enhancing services that JVS offers to its diverse clientele during the event, which was intended as an opportunity for the nonprofit, community-based health-and human-service organization to “personally thank those who continuously perform at the highest level to carry out the JVS mission of ‘Helping People to Help Themselves.’”

JVS honored Sobel & Co. as a public accounting firm that not only consistently contributes to the growth of its clients, but also helps nonprofit organizations and those in need through its notable philanthropic activities.

Alan Sobel has made it his firm’s mission to equally serve business and pro bono clients with a set of core values that JVS said “are the life of the firm.” One particular organization that Sobel & Co. has supported is JVS.

In addition, JVS also noted that Sobel is often asked by his nonprofit clients why his firm chooses to assist them, and he responds that he and his employees “feel good about supporting those who do good and have a passion for helping local nonprofit organizations achieve their missions of helping the world’s most vulnerable.”

To express its gratitude, JVS presented Sobel & Co. with a Corporate Partner Award at the Taste and Toast. JVS board member David Picon and JVS Corporate Partner Alan Sobel are pictured above.
