The Jewish Center, in Princeton, New Jersey, is an egalitarian conservative synagogue serving a diverse Jewish population in Mercer, Middlesex, and Somerset counties. Like any vibrant non-profit organization, we operate on a tight budget while providing a wide range of services and programs to our membership and the community at large. Our insurance needs are as diverse as our membership. Traditional fire, property, workers compensation, and liability insurance coverage for our property, our religious artifacts, and our employees are only the beginning. We also require affordable yet comprehensive coverage for our Board of Directors, protection against cybercrimes, employee dishonesty, terrorism, and many other risks that require a carefully crafted insurance strategy. Most of all, we need an insurance broker that can see beyond the traditional and anticipate our future needs. For us, that insurance broker is the Borden Perlman Agency.
For over 15 years, Borden Perlman, led by Jeffrey Perlman, has provided the guidance, service, and insurance strategy that has allowed the leadership of The Jewish Center to focus on our mission even during times of crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is a case-in-point. At the beginning of the crisis, Jeff and his team anticipated our needs and analyzed our coverage to provide advice on where we needed to concentrate our insurance dollars. They guided us and secured coverage sufficient to protect the organization should the virus be transmitted at a religious service. This was the forward thinking that we needed.
Cost is always a factor in purchasing insurance coverage for a non-profit. Borden Perlman has consistently provided competitive quotes, fair rates, and comprehensive explanations of the insurance market so that our Board of Directors can make informed decisions regarding what we buy. We could not ask for a better partner than Borden Perlman in general, and Jeffrey Perlman in particular.
