About 

Pardes Hanna-Karkur is a town in the Haifa District of Israel. It is the largest settlement in Israel.  It has not been declared a city in order to preserve its authentic character as an old colony. 

Pardes-Hanna was founded in 1929 by Palestine Jewish Colonisation Association and named after Hannah Rothschild, daughter of Nathan Mayer Rothschild

The veterans of 'Moshava HaYekkim' (1929), who grew up under the patronage of Baron de Hirsch ("The Known Benefactor"), and of Karkur (1913), who preserved the character of Arab landholders from the Ottoman period were merged into Pardes-Hanna Karkur in 1969. 

The area is a magnet for artists and culinary entrepreneurs. The flow of high-middle class socioeconomic families from the center of Israel to Pardes-Hanna-Karkur has been a well-known phenomenon for the past 10 years.

Jewish Community Federation of Richmond

About us

Welcome to Richmond, the capital of Virginia, one of America’s oldest cities. We are steeped in history. There is evidence of Jews residing in Richmond as early as 1769. Revolutionary war veterans and business partners, Jacob I. Cohen and Isaiah Isaacs, the city's earliest known Jewish residents, were instrumental in the establishment of the state's first Jewish congregation in 1789. Kahal Kadosh Beth Shalome was the sixth and westernmost congregation in the colonies, and one of the six that congratulated George Washington upon his inauguration as first president. The 1790 census shows Richmond with the fourth largest Jewish population, following only New York, Charleston and Philadelphia. Today, our Jewish Community is approximately 12,000 community members strong. The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond partners with several congregations of many denominations, the beautiful Weinstein JCC facility, Rudlin Torah Academy K-8 day school, the Virginia Holocaust Museum, Beth Sholom Senior Facility, and the Jewish Family Services which has served Richmond for more than 170 years. Many other Jewish points of interest include Beth Ahabah Museum, Emek Sholom Holocaust Memorial Cemetery, Historic Hebrew Cemetery and much more.

Charleston Jewish Federation

chs p2g.JPG

About us

Welcome to the Lowcountry! The gorgeous city of Charleston, South Carolina sits along the southern coast of the United States, making it a lovely destination beach town as well as an active center of culture and history. Downtown Charleston remains timelessly unique in its design, with breezy palm trees alongside beautifully preserved architecture. With a dedication to the conservation of Charleston’s nature, the town promotes environmental advocacy and awareness through its annual hosting of the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, as well as through its incredible patronage of the South Carolina Aquarium. The city proudly invests itself in the support of artistic pursuit, livening up its streets each spring with Charleston’s annual Spoleto Arts Festival—a city wide celebration of all mediums of artistic expression. Of course, Charleston’s historical role in the Civil War played an enormous part in its past—something that is recognized through such landmarks as Fort Sumter, the Old Slave Mart Museum, and Magnolia Plantation.

The Jewish Community in Charleston began its inception only twenty-five years after the city’s founding in 1670. The Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) temple became Charleston’s first Jewish congregation in 1749; now, KKBE is the oldest functioning sanctuary in the country and is often considered the birthplace of Reform Judaism in the United States. Since then, the Charleston Jewish community has only built upon its already strong foundation; today, four Jewish congregations decorate the town, alongside a Chabad, a Jewish day school, Addlestone Hebrew Academy, and an incredibly strong Hillel at the College of Charleston. Organizations such as Hadassah and the National Council of Jewish Women have well-established chapters within Charleston’s Jewish community, while young Charlestonians are active participants in Birthright trips to Israel, with which the city has a close and invaluable relationship. The local Jewish community is also supported by KKBE’s history museum, the connected and dedicated Jewish Federation, and a moving Holocaust Memorial in central Downtown Charleston. Ultimately, this lovely colorful town hosts an incomparably rich Jewish history, grounded in centuries of shared community and culture—and Charleston only continues to grow its beautiful tree of Jewish life.

Greensboro Jewish Federation

GREENSBORO.jpg

About us

Greensboro is part of the Piedmont Triad (which also includes Winston-Salem and High Point) and is nicknamed the "Gate City". Greensboro is bursting with many cultural attractions such as the ACC Hall of Champions, the Greensboro Science Center, the Greensboro Historical Museum, the Carolina Theatre, the popular Greensboro Coliseum event complex and the International Civil Rights Center and Museum (perhaps the metro area's most famous attraction).

Moses and Cesar Cone were amongst the first Jews to arrive in Greensboro in the 1890s. Over a century later, this pioneer Jewish family – of which the Cones are just one example – have left a legacy of community and religious engagement that have sustained Jewish life in the city. In 1940, The Greensboro United Charities was incorporated. Greensboro assisted eight refugee families to relocate to Greensboro.  After the war, the Charities worked to support the establishment of the State of Israel and to develop local Jewish agencies. After World War II, both Greensboro and its Jewish community enjoyed a remarkable growth spurt. The Jewish community more than tripled in size. Greensboro Jews were swept up in the civil rights movement, which achieved one its early victories in Greensboro. In 1968, Greensboro United Charities became the Triad Jewish Federation, incorporating both the High-Point and Winston-Salem Jewish communities. In 1978, it was reorganized to form the Greensboro Jewish Federation.

Federation of Jewish Communities in Czech Republic

Prague

About us

Czech Republic has often been called the “heart of Europe” thanks to its geographical location. Positioned in the middle of Germany, Poland, Slovakia, and Austria, the Czech Republic truly lies in the heart of Europe. As such, it makes a great home-base for anyone wishing to travel around and explore Europe. A region of rolling hills and mountains, Czech Republic  is dominated by the national capital, Prague, set on the Vltava River, this picturesque city of bridges. 

Jews have lived in the territory of the today’s Czech Republic for more than 1,000 years. The Old-New Synagogue was build around 1270 and is the oldest functioning synagogue of Europe. Important was the school of Rabbi Jehuda Löw ben Bezalel, the famous “Maharal mi Prag”. In the spring of 1927, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the first president of Czechoslovakia, arrived in the Holy Land to visit the Yishuv - the Jews living in the Land of Israel. It was historically the first visit of the official head of state to the Mandatory Palestine.

The Holocaust meant for the Czech Jewry an absolute disaster. At the establishment of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, over 120,000 Jews lived in this area. The exact number of Czech Jewish victims of the Holocaust is not exactly known, but at least 80,000 Jews were murdered. Only about 30,000 Jews started to recreate Jewish life in Bohemia and Moravia by 1945/1946. Only a few years later they had to face another challenge when Communists took power in February 1948. It was the Velvet revolution in November 1989 which brought freedom to Czech society and it’s Jewish Community.

The Federation of Jewish Communities serves as an umbrella organization for Jewish Communities and other Jewish institutions in the country. Currently there are ten official Jewish Communities in Bohemia and Moravia with approximately 3,000 registered members of which 1,400 reside in Prague. There is a number of various Jewish organizations which fall under the auspices of the Federation. Altogether these institutions associate approximately another 2,000 people, however it is estimated that there are an additional 10 to 15,000 unregistered Jews in the country.

The Jewish school includes a kindergarten, an elementary school and a high school. The Jewish community provides wide programming including social services, care for Holocaust survivors, Jewish holidays celebrations, summer camps, family gatherings and much more.
