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
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. 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.
