Celebration of Israel’s 70th Birthday

We hope you'll plan on joining us at our upcoming events to celebrate Israel's 70th birthday!

  • The Weinstein JCC and Jewish Community Federation of Richmond present A Celebration of Israel’s 70th Birthday with Israeli Superstar D’ganit Daddo on Sunday, May 6 from 3:00 - 6:00 PM! There will be camel rides, a petting zoo, henna tattoos, Israeli cuisine for purchase, Israeli wine tastings, art and gifts straight from Israel at Bar Kochva's Shuk, and more! Event attendance is FREE; concert tickets are available here.

The Weinstein JCC is also currently considering the creation of a JCCA Boarding Pass trip, an Israel travel program that offers customized journeys to one of the most diverse and celebrated states in the world. To help us in the potential planning of this trip, we are seeking information from individuals in our community interested in attending and willing to make a commitment to travel with us. Please complete this short survey that will offer us insight on the type of Israel trip you would be interested in participating in. If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Newsome, Membership Specialist at the Weinstein JCC, at 804-545-8636 or
