The Emergency Relief Fund allowed us to support our community and community agencies when they needed us most.
Last year, our mental health was affected by the isolation, worry, and coping with various challenges that life offers. Because we have been there since day one, and will continue to be there, we were able to still make an impact during a very trying time.
A huge THANK YOU for making it possible for me to get my COVID-19 vaccination today! My husband is 76 and has lung cancer, so I have been very anxious to be inoculated. We are thrilled. I have no idea how you organized this so quickly. They should put you in charge of the distribution program for the state!
The JCRC, as the public affairs and government relations arm of the Jewish Federation has spent the last year and a half advocating, educating, and taking action on issues vital to the Jewish community. Much like the rest of the world however, we have had to find new and creative ways to connect to our legislators, connect to our community partners, and connect to each other.
Through all of our conversations, programs, and meetings – our goal is to make sure the interests of the Jewish community are promoted in the wider Richmond community and throughout the Commonwealth.
While we were unable to travel and host our partners from Israel and overseas, we still found a way to make meaningful connections with our friends and family all over the world. We continue to support our partners JDC and the Jewish Agency for Israel.
We support and strengthen Jewish life around the world. The global reach of our Jewish community and the Jewish Federations network is unparalleled. Together, we’ve built and sustained programs in more than 70 countries, ensuring that Jewish communities everywhere are vibrant and resilient.
We create strong connections with Israel, our Jewish homeland, educate about our shared economic and cultural ties, support programs in struggling communities worldwide, respond to crises, and empower people to advocate for Israel.
