The Campaign

In 2020, we as a community, a society and a country have endured a storm like no other. Never has it been so important for us to join together in the spirit of compassion, generosity and community.


2020 has been a rough year for everyone. From isolation and loneliness, to job loss and financial stress, to relationship challenges – everyone has been impacted by this pandemic. Facing countless emotional, physical and financial challenges, we’re all looking for a little light in what feels like a dark time. Chabad Richmond is counting on that light. While Jews embrace varying levels of observance, there should be a place for all Jews to feel at home and welcome. That place is Chabad Richmond.


Chabad Richmond is an educational, spiritual and social service organization that provides an array of ongoing and vital resources to young and old alike. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Chabad Richmond helps alleviate suffering within our community through outreach, online zoom classes, Light of Shabbat meals and a variety of other programs. Because life is not a spectator sport.


Chabad Richmond is so grateful for your ongoing support. It lets us help to those in our community who feel isolated and alone right now. Through our large network of caring, energetic volunteers, we’re doing our best to serve our community’s physical and spiritual needs. A huge thank you to our many volunteers who do everything from serving on the Board of Directors and various committees, cooking and delivering Light of Shabbat meals, to making weekly Hello Bubby Zaidy calls to seniors, teaching and so much more.
