CEO & Founder
A distinctly energetic and visionary entrepreneur, Duvi Honig has built a world class network of diverse businesses and business services to enhance the business prospects of the world’s Orthodox Jewish communities through innovative economic development and public policy initiatives. His work is based upon a down to earth understanding of the economy. Duvi issued correct advance warning about several major economic downturns, including the 2008 financial and real estate collapse, the 2015 “Flash Crash” stock market fall, and the global market panic that followed the Brexit vote in June 2016.
The dual pillars that Duvi founded – the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce and non-profit Parnassah Network organization – encompass nearly 1,000 diverse businesses and fourteen divisions. Nearly 20,000 people from across the United States and six additional countries took advantage of OJC/Parnassah Network resources, including the flagship annual Parnassah Expo - J Biz Expo – Nationwide Business Networking Event, the world’s largest Jewish community B2B event.
Duvi effectively utilizes the clout of these networks to influence public policy at the local, state, federal and international level to benefit Jewish community businesses. Duvi’s work was recognized in writing by the White House and, in 2016, he was honored by a bipartisan group of influential U.S. senators during Jewish Heritage Month. Duvi and other members of the OJC Executive Public Policy Committee have a particular interest in U.S.-Israel economic ties and protecting the Israeli economy from threats such as BDS and UN anti-Semitism. The OJC hosted a nationally reported news conference at the UN in December 2016, headlined by former Ambassador John Bolton, articulating the dangers of US diplomatic abandonment of Israel. In January 2017, the OJC led a historic “U.S.-Israel Business Alliance” mission to Israel, headlined by Governor Mike Huckabee, to boost economic ties and battle contemporary threats.
