RJCL holding book drive


The Richmond Jewish Coalition for Literacy (RJCL) will resume engagement with Richmond Public Schools in early 2022.

While we are awaiting our return to mentoring, RJCL is excited to assist RPS through limited contact with a book drive (see Book Wish List), books (to be assigned) recorded for classrooms and collections of items to support teachers (see the list that follows) during the continuation of challenging circumstances.

For more information about any of these initiatives, please contact Sara Rosenbaum at srosenbaum@jewishrichmond.org.
