Young Jewish Professionals Living in Richmond who want to connect.
Welcome to the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond
We are the central fundraising, community planning, leadership development, and outreach arm of the Jewish Community
As Russ Jennings, JCFR Men’s Divsion co-chair, and I are set to depart for the Campaigner’s Mission to Israel July 18-24, we are filled with anticipation.
We will join 60 other leaders from around North America on this unique mission to learn about Israeli’s history, see and learn about Israeli beneficiary agencies of the JCFR Annual Campaign, and learn first-hand about the politics and people of Israel.
We are scheduled on the first day to begin with a visit to Independence Hall in Tel Aviv where the State of Israel was announced on Independence Day in 1948, and meet with new immigrants to Israel being resettled by the Jewish Agency for Israel.
We also will meet with at-risk youth and visit the Taglit-Birthright Innovation Center.
On Day 2. We will begin our look Inside Israel at a special American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee program called the Ultra-Orthodox employment program.
After this, we will meet with Holocaust Survivors and discover their creative journeys through photography. The rest of the day will include fundraising workshops taught by Rae Ringel, master development guru consultant for JFNA.
