Weinstein JCC

Serving Richmond and the Jewish Community for 75 Years

More than 8,000 Richmonders currently enjoy the Weinstein JCC, thanks to a movement that began in 1941. Jewish residents wanted to build a Jewish community center, and interest accelerated following the war. The first center opened on Idlewood Avenue in 1946, with about 300 Jewish members. Within three-years, membership was expanded to the community regardless of religious affiliation, race, age, or demographic. We moved to our current Monument Avenue location in 1959, and have since added an early childhood wing, auditorium, café, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility that includes a lap pool and a salt-water rec pool with a waterslide and lazy river. 

In Goochland County, we purchased and transformed one hundred acres into another community offering, Camp Hilbert. At this summer day camp, kids discover the great outdoors, experience adventure through archery and canoeing, and explore creativity through drama, music, and crafts.

Today, our comprehensive campus known as the Carole and Marcus Weinstein Jewish Community Center remains dedicated to the well-being of the Richmond and Jewish communities through personal, cultural, social, and physical enrichment.

For more than seventy-five years, we have positively impacted RVA in significant ways. We’re a network of caring people with exceptional programs and facilities, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to help people every day. The Weinstein JCC’s positive influence extends beyond our membership. We are committed to the well-being of the entire Richmond community. 

Save the date and join us at these events to celebrate 75 years of community!
