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. People are welcome to attend part of, or all of, the programme activities. Every third Monday, we sponsor a Wellness Clinic where you can have your blood pressure taken, sugar testing for diabetes, speak to a nurse or outreach worker, or, at very reduced prices, even get a manicure, pedicure, reflexology, etc. The Richmond Jewish Seniors community is a growing one and we anticipate expanded activities and growth.
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.
