Join us to bring Lights of Love for the Holidays


For 4 consecutive years, Lights of Love has spread more and more joy at the holidays, thanks to you!

Again this year, we look forward to bringing joy and happiness to those who may otherwise feel lonely and forgotten during the winter holidays.

Through your generosity, over 150 children, adults, seniors, and families will receive holiday gifts! Thank you for helping us spread the light and love even further.

How It Works

Until December 5th, JFS’ giant menorah will be in the foyer of the Weinstein JCC. You’ll find paper flames hanging nearby, each with a wishlist and some details about the person or family printed on the back.


Simply take a flame and include it in your holiday shopping. Then bring the gifts – unwrapped! – back to the Weinstein JCC before December 5!

Wrapping Parties

Do you like wrapping?

Once the gifts are collected, our team will host festive “wrapping parties” the following week to put on the finishing touches.

Gifts will be delivered during the week of Hannukah!


JFS staff spends time throughout the year getting to know their clients: what makes them smile, their favorite meals, and learning what might make the holidays extra special for them, so the gifts are truly personalized. When JFS volunteers and staff drop off gifts, many stay to visit.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make Lights of Love a success over the years! We appreciate you making this a part of your holiday tradition!  If you’d like to learn more or get involved, contact Teresa Baldwin at tbaldwin@jfsrichmond.org or (804) 282-5644 ext. 265.

Each has worked very hard and deserves this honorable distinction!

Jewish Family Services is supported, in part, by a generous annual contribution and programming grants from the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond.
