We believe that while Jews embrace varying levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews, regardless of labels. People attend Chabad Richmond for various reasons, including social, educational and spiritual. Chabad Richmond, your one-stop centre for all things Jewish:

Our Year End Campaign

This campaign will help guarantee the continuation of existing programs and services at Chabad Richmond. Our goal is to reach $160,000 in donations.

2019 Highlights

  • Close to 1,000 children attended our various children’s educational programs.
  • From week to week, a varying number of elderly homebound Jews received a Light of Shabbat homemade meal, Jews who might not otherwise celebrate Shabbat at all. Since the program’s inception, over 650 seniors have received over 1600 Shabbat meals. These meals, delivered personally, help alleviate the isolation that many seniors experience, and are critical to their well-being.
  • Over 700 seniors enjoyed a healthy Smile on Seniors lunch along with an educational speaker or musical performance.
  • Local Jews participated in over 3,000 hours of Jewish learning at Chabad Richmond, including Torah classes, JLI courses, and special lectures.
  • Dozens of teens attend a variety of programs including the weekly CTeen Program to study, participate in mitzvahs for seniors, and gather together for fun activities.
