Guide to Jewish Living in Tidewater: Dear Readers

by | Aug 11, 2022 | Trending News

Dear Readers,

A guide or directory is often an accurate barometer of how a community is faring. If the guide shrinks over the years, it stands to reason that the same is true for the community. The converse, of course, is also true.

Across the nation many communities have contracted since March 2020, yet Tidewater’s Jewish community continues to flourish. The many pages in this Annual Guide to Jewish Living in Tidewater confirm that the organizations, congregations, and schools that comprise Jewish Tidewater are in fact, growing. The proof is that we’ve added pages to this year’s edition!

Some programs, of course, have been eliminated, but generally new ones have taken their place…a reflection of creativity and growth.

We hope that you’ll hold onto this section all year and use it as a resource for any number of reasons…to learn about specific programs, to find a phone number, website, or contact name. Or perhaps just to remind yourself what a vibrant Jewish community Tidewater offers—and how many options exist for you to volunteer, find new friends and colleagues, learn, stay fit, get assistance, and worship.

Thank you for reading and for being part of Jewish Tidewater!
