We are our brother’s keeper’

Samuel H. Asher CEO

Nathan Shor, president of the JCFR, has often been quoted as saying, "We are our brother’s keeper." 

So, it is no surprise that the JCFR opened a JFNA mailbox to collect funds for the Ukrainian Assistance effort. On March 10, the JCFR Executive Committee committed $10,000 for the Assistance Effort to respond to the needs facing the Ukrainian Jewish community.

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), an agency that receives funding from The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond, is taking aggressive action.

In response to food shortages, metro service suspension and a growing sense of fear among Jewish elderly, JDC activated its emergency network in the Ukraine on March 6. This effort is focused on vulnerable elderly Jews and will allow emergency mobile units to deliver food, medicine and other necessities.



Help us help Ukrainians in crises!

The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond and The Jewish Federations of North America are mobilizing a communal response to the situation in Ukraine.

JFNA has opened a mailbox for Federations to support relief efforts by our overseas partners to provide urgent support for the 300,000 Jews living in Ukraine. Our global partners continue to assess the evolving situation on the ground. Ukraine is home to one of the largest Jewish populations, including some of the poorest Jews in the world.

Elderly Jews hardest hit by Ukrainian crises

As the situation in Ukraine continues to develop, JDC is committed to continuing the delivery of food and medicine to the homes of the neediest elderly and poor clients where tensions are highest, especially in Crimea.

Today was our first full day in Israel.  We began our day of touring at the Yitzhak Rabin Center in Tel Aviv which is dedicated to the memory of Yitzhak Rabin.  The museum provides a comprehensive history of modern Israel, following the life and career of Rabin from his childhood to his assassination. The museum is dedicated to Mr. Rabin's pursuit of peace that was unfortunately cut short.
