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 April Update

The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond is the central fundraising, community planning, leadership development, public affairs office and outreach arm of the Jewish Community.

 Through Federation, we act on the Jewish values of compassion, charity and generosity to improve the quality of life for people in our community, in Israel and in over 70 countries every day. Through our commitments to the Federation we make a difference in someone’s life.

 Since 1935, the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond has served as the central address of the organized Jewish community in Richmond. A voluntary association of social service agencies, organizations and Synagogues, the Federation works to ensure the well-being, continuity and strength of Richmond’s vibrant Jewish community.

 The Federation is guided by professional and lay leaders who are grounded in the traditional Jewish values of Tzedakah, deeds of loving kindness, justice and Tikkun Olam, which call upon us to rescue the imperiled, care for the vulnerable and help assure the vitality of Jewish life in Richmond, in Israel and around the world.

 The Federation fosters collaboration among synagogues, agencies, schools and organizations through its fundraising, planning, community relations and leadership development programs.
