Members of Jewish communities from across the Commonwealth go each year to the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond to collaborate on Virginia Jewish Advocacy Day, also known as Date with the State. This annual event is a powerful forum to effectively communicate with General Assembly members about issues of importance to the Jewish community.

Tidewater’s delegation will travel by bus to and from Richmond, leaving the Simon Family JCC at 7 am and returning by 4 pm. While in Richmond, the Tidewater delegation will divide into teams to visit the regions’ State Senators and Delegates. The delegation will convene for lunch with other Virginia Jewish communal lobbyists, and as in years past, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General have been invited to join the group and address the issues important to the community.

The cost is $36, which includes a kosher lunch and helps defray the cost of transportation.

For more information, e-mail Megan Zuckerman, director, Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, at, or call 965-6112. To reserve a seat on the bus (payment confirms participation for the day) by January 29, visit
