rGEN's Purim celebration brings in big crowd to Riverside location


By Jewish Federation of Jacksonville

                rGEN held its annual Purim celebration earlier this spring at Kickbacks Gastropub in Riverside. Tabbed 'Puri'm Another', the event brought in a robust attendance from the young professionals in the Jacksonville Jewish community, including nearly a dozen newcomers. With appearances from the Jacksonville Jewish Center's Hazzan Jesse Holzer and Congregation Ahavath Chesed's (The Temple) associate Rabbi, Matt Cohen, there were plenty of clergy members to go around with food and drink inside the restaurant's new downstairs Belgian Brew Room. The celebration was also co-sponsored by The Temple 20s and 30s (T3) and the Center's So-Shul Network.
