Resources for Families

Explore all that the Federation offers for families.


 

 

PJ Library sends free Jewish children's books to families across the world every month. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk together about values and traditions that are important to you.

 

A program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Library is made possibile through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. Families raising kids from birth through 9 years old with Judaism as part of their lives, are welcome to sign-up. PJ Library welcomes all Jewish families, whatever your background, knowledge, or family make-up, or observance may be.


 

Jewish Camp

 

Jewish camp weaves Jewish values, culture, and traditions into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community. Spirited and dynamic staff members use experiential learning to reveal what makes Jewish religion and culture so unique in today’s world. At camp, Jewish and Israeli culture is celebrated through song, food, art, and dance.

 

The impact of Jewish camp is immediate—campers return home connected to a community and friends that will last them a lifetime. And it doesn’t stop there. Children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities.


 

Jewish Camp Scholarships

 

Jewish Community Federation of Richmond is proud to provide scholarships and special grants for all types of educational initiatives enabling parents to send their children to overnight summer camps as well as to participate in Israel Experience programs. Nothing makes Jewish identity and history come alive for young people like an Israel Experience Program or a Jewish summer camp.
