It's a fantastic community where anyone of any level of practice, as in you've been practicing judaism since you were in diapers to just now discovering your heritage, is welcome and appreciated. I truly love everyone I hav emet through this group.

Jewish Life at VCU has been my home away from home while attending VCU. Not only do they host a beautiful and delicious Shabbat dinner, they are also there to give me advice and teach me new things. They helped me have a great college experience!

I printed a Don't Quit poem on Menorah paper to hang on their wall for the kids or students who are especially vulnerable at holidays & after the PA shooting where Grandmas & babies were simply having a nice day. The center is cosy for the VCU students & visitor. The staff is welcoming &... creative with outreach & solidarity. Impressive. I'm so happy the kids have a place with a welcome mat always out. If you're a Jewish student, be bold & just go. A hug & smile will be your first greeting. Kol tuv.read more
