                Fun was had by all Sunday, July 31st, when more than 115 members of the Jacksonville Jewish community gathered to watch the Suns take on the Biloxi Shuckers at the first ever Jewish Community Fun with the Suns Day. In addition to a post-game base run and visits from Star Wars characters throughout the evening, Etz Chaim Synagogue's Rabbi Fisch opened the game with a very special ceremonial first pitch. A very special thank you goes out to all those synagogues and agencies who partnered with Federation and the Suns to put on this event, including Jewish Family & Community Services, The Jewish Community Foundation of Northeast Florida, The Jewish Community Alliance and River Garden Senior Services in addition to Beth El – The Beaches Synagogue, Congregation, Ahavath Chesed )The Temple), The Jacksonville Jewish Center and Etz Chaim Synagogue.
