Richmond Jewish Community Hub was created in 2018 as an inclusive cultural centre for the Jewish community of South West London. Based in the beautifully functional building of the Richmond Synagogue, RJCH is bringing a fresh wave of creativity and energy to the area. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of The United Synagogue Community Development Fund.
Our vision is for the RJCH to be a hub of Jewish activity at the heart of the South West London Jewish Community. We seek to build an invigorated community infused with a fresh sense of unity and connected by strong Jewish values, a love for arts and culture, a passion for education, and a strong feeling of belonging.
RJCH provides a place and programme of outstanding activities, clubs, courses and vibrant events that serve the whole Jewish community, regardless of age, denomination or level of observance.
We do this by:
