Join us for a Shavuot-themed learning session where we explore (and debate!) Jewish ideas about life. New topics at every session, from complex questions about God to creating a more loving world. This series is open to anyone age 13+ who is Jewish, wants to be Jewish, loves a Jewish person, or is just a little “Jewcurious.”

  • Shabbat Picnic & Torah Study: Saturday, July 27 | 10 a.m. | VMFA

Join us for a combined Shabbat morning service and Torah study at the VMFA! We’ll gather outside on the lawn. Bring a blanket and a food item to share.

 Kehillah Cares

BIG NEWS: In a groundbreaking move in community care and interfaith partnership, we have partnered with Health Brigade, Virginia’s venerable free and charitable clinic, to provide integrated health services to Richmond’s vulnerable Jewish population.

“We’re excited about this new partnership with Kehillah to serve those in their congregation in need of our services,” says Karen Legato, Executive Director of Health Brigade. “Our shared commitment of caring for diverse people of all walks of life is the foundation of this partnership. We believe this opportunity will open up new ways for faith-based organizations to collaborate with non-profit community health organizations like Health Brigade.”

From initial assessment to ongoing treatment, the collaboration between the two organizations promises personalized care pathways designed to address the unique bio-psycho-social needs of each client. Whether it’s ongoing case management, short-term mental health counseling, or referrals, the partnership ensures a continuum of care that prioritizes individual well-being.

Care is one hundred percent subsidized by Kehillah, which raises funds for the partnership through individual private donations. “The people you sit with at Shabbat and holidays are the ones caring for you—and yet, no one seeks recognition or praise for giving,” says Rabbi Patrick Beaulier, co-spiritual leader of Kehillah. “At Kehillah, you matter, and that’s all that matters to us.”

  • Subsidized Services:
