  • Shalom Jax’s Jewish Java finds permanent home at River Garden

    Last month, River Garden Executive director Martin Goetz welcomed everyone and shared his appreciation of Federation’s generous financial support of River Garden Senior Services. During his talk, Goetz said that he and his staff were delighted to offer Shalom Jacksonville’s Jewish Java a permanent home. This move will allow Java to ultimately expand its programming and provide more than enough space to invite locals to meet newcomers and reacquaint with old friends.
