Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz Director of Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida said that the response to their first JBN event was way beyond their wildest dreams of interest & success.

    What was the focus of the event. Was this a fundraiser, or a spiritual event or a way to build connections?

    There aren’t many details, but it is a way to build connections, and if done as other shluchim have, there is usually a short dvar torah at some point.
