Say YES to Light!

The Campaign

SAY YES TO LIGHT! One of the main focuses of Chanukah is that when the night falls and darkness kicks in, we put aside everything, light the Menorah, share, and spread the Chanukah light!


2021 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 during this 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.  And the lights are always on.


Chabad Richmond is an educational, spiritual and social service organization that provides an array of ongoing programs and 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 other programs. Because life (like suffering) is not a spectator sport.


We are so grateful for your ongoing support. It lets us help those in our community who feel isolated and alone. 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  volunteers who do everything from cooking and delivering Light of Shabbat meals, to making weekly Hello Bubby Zaidy calls to seniors, to tutoring English to Israeli students and so much more.
