Kehila Richmond Jewish Seniors
The Kehila Society of Richmond focuses on strategic planning with partner and constituent agencies to foster and create satellite and outreach programs and services within the Richmond Jewish community.
The Canadian census shows that Richmond is on the road to having the highest concentration of seniors in the Lower Mainland; Kehila has worked diligently to address the growing needs of this population with the vision of empowering seniors to act on their own behalf and to exercise their rights and advocate for their own interests. With this philosophy in mind, Kehila, in partnership with Beth Tikvah Synagogue, and with funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Vancouver, the Kehila Richmond Jewish Seniors (KRJS) drop-in center is now a reality.
We are Seniors, working with Seniors, for Seniors
KRJS runs from September to June every Monday, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, except on holidays, at Beth Tikvah Synagogue, 9711 Geal Road (Williams and Railway) in Richmond.
From 11:00-11:45 seniors can participate in exercise class or enjoy coffee and mingle. After a 3 course meal from 12:00-1:00 seniors enjoy an hour program of either music, health related topics, trivia, games and holiday specific programming.
Every third Monday, we sponsor a Wellness Clinic where you can have your blood pressure taken, speak to a nurse or outreach worker, or, even get a manicure, pedicure, reflexology, etc.
If getting to the program is difficult, a FREE bus service is available. Thank you to our generous sponsor of this program Bria Communities and STAR.
The Richmond Jewish Seniors community is a growing one and we anticipate expanded activities and growth. Jewish seniors from nearby areas are always welcome. Come out, meet us, and participate. A Newsletter and calendar are mailed out 5 times a year.
