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
It has been my pleasure to help plan missions to Israel, Poland and Ukraine over the past several years.
Some were worker training missions for volunteers, some were tied to our Partnership Community of Hadera, Israel, and some were designed to help first timers get acquainted with Israel and bring others back to Israel for a second or third time.
Our most recent mission from Oct. 26 - Nov. 4 – the JCFR Sherry Rose Food and Wine Mission – blended important meetings about the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and Jewish Agency for Israel programs with touring and, of course, food and wine. We were pleased to have 21 members on our mission group. Our mission chairs were Mark and Melanie Binshtok, and their expertise on Israel was invaluable. We had a great visit.
Thank you to RJCL for the awesome opportunity to mentor a student at Swansboro Elementary School!
When I retired after 14 wonderful years of teaching 4-year-old preschoolers, my neighbor, Claudia Biegler, suggested I look into mentoring a student at Swansboro Elementary through the Richmond Jewish Coalition for Literacy (RJCL). I went to the orientation and training and was matched with a sparkling, shy, quiet six-year-old chosen by her teacher. Because of a speech issue, my mentee and I communicated with her through art, educational games, and LOTS of reading – me to her that first year.
