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 February Update

When I see folks out on the “street,” sometimes I hear:  “Nice article last week.” Or, I’ll get a note back in the mail with some feedback on a column I wrote in the Reflector.

But, there’s never a dull moment at the Federation office. As the central fundraising agency in the community, the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond funds local Jewish agencies with social service programs for individuals from infancy to senior adulthood. We are the public affairs and advocacy office for the Jewish Community – through our Jewish Community Relations Committee. We have adopted communities in Ukraine and Israel. 

Four Beneficiary Agencies:

We have four major local beneficiary agencies: Weinstein JCC, Beth Sholom Lifecare Community, Jewish Family Services and Rudlin Torah Academy. The Virginia Holocaust Museum is a new affiliate agency. 

We also fund programs in Israel and around the world through the Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. We run community-wide leadership development programs and Network JCFR – a program for young Jewish professionals in the community. 




Upcoming JCRC Event

The premiere JCRC event, which is co-sponsored with Richmond Hadassah, is an opportunity to come together and advocate for our issues. Participants from Jewish communities all across the Commonwealth gather in Richmond to meet with elected officials and speak up on behalf of the issues on which we stand.
