                It has become a longstanding Jacksonville Jewish community tradition that rGEN provides a place for young professionals to go after Yom Kippur services to break the fast each year. 5777 was no different as this year, nearly 50 young adults from the rGEN community were graciously hosted in the home of Nicole and Andy Brown, who adopted the group last minute due to lack of power because of Hurricane Matthew in the original hosts’ home. Break the Fast with the Bannons at the Browns’ was co-hosted by rGEN Campaign Chair Shylie Bannon and her husband Jesse Bannon, with support from rGEN’s Ben-Gurion Society Chair Ben Marsh. Without these five, this event could not have been the success that it was as we have been told there are even still leftovers.
