CEO Samuel Asher's January Update

Recently, I had the privilege of touring the progress at the “new” Beth Sholom Healthcare Center with Mark Finkel, CEO of the Beth Sholom Lifecare Community and Beth Siegel-Stein, chairperson of the Board of Directors.  It’s the “new Beth Sholom” evolving off of John Rolfe Parkway and Lauderdale Drive.

Beth Sholom opened in 1945 – over 70 years ago in a converted mansion in Richmond’s historic Fan District as the first Jewish home for seniors in the state. While they moved to a larger campus in the West End some years ago, they have continued to be a big part of our community. 

The Beth Sholom campus is composed of an independent living apartment complex (The Woods); two assisted living communities with dedicated memory care units; (Parkside and The Gardens); a Healthcare Center with skilled nursing and a full spectrum of rehabilitative care; and an Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic. Most recently, Beth Sholom began a partnership with a full-service home health agency that provides in-home, skilled medical care designed to competently meet important needs of our Jewish Community members.

The premiere JCRC event, which is co-sponsored with Richmond Hadassah, is an opportunity to come together and advocate for our issues.
