Welcome to the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond

We are the central fundraising, community planning, leadership development, and outreach arm of the Jewish Community

CEO Samuel Asher's May Update

The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond is the central fundraising, community planning, leadership development, and outreach arm of the Jewish Community.  Its goal is to help address the needs of the Jewish community and build a vibrant and enduring Jewish future not only in Richmond, but also in Israel and around the world.     

JCFR has an enviable track record of conducting Jewish community studies, especially given the relatively small size of the community.  The first such study involving primary research was conducted in 1983; this was followed by a similarly designed study in 1994, which, in turn, was updated in 2011. JCFR and Richmond Jewish Foundation leadership are now sponsoring a new community study to deepen their understanding of the Jewish community. 

We are working with the Melior Group, a market research firm out of Philadelphia, to develop actionable insights about community needs, wants, interests and values that will support leadership decisions and strategy formation.
