NowGen Partiers celebrate Rosh Bash 5782 pandemic-style at the Fairlane Hotel
By Marisa Rubin, Jewish Federation Community Engagement Associate
For the first time since 2019, NowGen came together, in person, to celebrate Rosh Hashanah at our annual Rosh Bash. From the beginning the event posed many challenges, including figuring out the best ways to ensure that everyone would have a space to comfortably be able to party like we’re (still) in a pandemic. And we did just that. Saturday, September 11th, NowGen headed to The Fairlane hotel in downtown Nashville to party together, embrace each other’s company and feel that bit of normalcy that we’ve all been aching for. Everyone was smiling, dancing, and getting to know so many new people. That night, at least 10 newcomers enjoyed their first ever NowGen event. This was definitely an evening I won’t ever forget. I want to thank The Kupin Group, The Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, The Fairlane Hotel and The Orley Family. Without them, none of this would have been possible. I’d say 5782 has been SHOFAR SO GOOD.
