My daughter attends VCU from out of state. Jewish VCU immediately welcomed and accepted her into their community. Rabbi Friedman and Chana are kind and accommodating. Jewish VCU provides a physical and emotional connection to her culture. She has made many nice friends and we feel better knowing... she has such good people watching out for her.read more

My daughter always talks about JVCU and the friend she has made there. I am so happy she has found this group and has found her home away from home.

Jewish Life at VCU is an amazing organization that is staffed by incredibly generous people! It provides students with so many opportunities such as travel, meals, celebration of Jewish holidays, learning, and socialization with fellow members of the tribe at VCU and in the Richmond community!

Jewish Life at VCU has become my 2nd home. I am a senior now and I can’t imagine my experience at college without JVCU. I have met some of my best friends here and made memories that will last forever.

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
