Steven Surfas, a MBA student in the fully employed programs, like other students in their last trimester, is anxious to graduate April 17. Hot Springs, Arkansas, is calling him to take over a major opportunity in the family business.

Steven’s family own the Surfas Restaurant Supply and Gourmet Food located in Culver City. The business started by selling restaurant supplies and equipment to restaurants in 1937. The business has expanded to include the Culinary District in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Steven is following in his father’s footsteps; earning an MBA from Pepperdine. After Steven’s father earned his MBA he began to grow the business and expanded to five different locations. It is now consolidated in two locations employing over 100 employees. The company works with companies all over the country.

Steven states the MBA program has been an opportunity to expand his business knowledge and to understand other businesses because of the students in the program. To personally enhance his professional business experience, he has worked for Disney in Florida and Bon Appetit Management Company at The Getty Center while in undergraduate school. Steven has a background in international business as well, having spent time in Germany taking undergraduate business classes.

Steven will move to Arkansas after graduation to head up the remaining construction and occupancy of the historic Hamp Williams Building purchased by the family development company, The Surfas Group. This is a 47,000 square foot 1920 Italianate Renaissance Revival style and the largest privately owned renovation project in Hot Springs. It is undergoing a major renovation to house the Culinary District plus 25,000 square feet of leased office space. The Culinary District provides design and installation services for commercial kitchens, as well as equipment and anything to do with food preparation.

Congratulations Steven for continuing with the family business and for sharing your entrepreneurial spirit.
Ms. Sandra Moore is director of MBA Programs for Working Professionals at the Graziadio School of Business and Management, working with fully employed students earning an MBA or Bachelors of Science in Management degree.

New JDMM video: Parshas Tazria

ParshasTazria"Tazria" is the name of this week's parsha video from Jewish Deaf Multimedia (JDMM). Among the topics discussed in the parsha is tzaaras.

A physical disease that came as result of a spiritual blemish caused by gossip, tzaaras was curable only by consulting two people - a knowledgeable Jew and a kohen. The latter would determine whether or not it was spiritually pure, and his decision was final.

Why - in the case of tzaaras - does the kohen have the final authority on the matter, even if he wasn't as knowledgeable as the other Jew? This week's parsha video will give you the answer.
