Welcome, and bruchim habaim!

If there’s one gift we can give our children it’s a great education. At Richmond Jewish Day School (RJDS) our children are imbued with Jewish values and a meaningful connection to their common cultural heritage, while at the same time given a solid academic grounding.

A school that’s at the heart of Richmond’s Jewish community, parents describe us an oasis. “Here, our children receive a Jewish cultural and social experience that keeps them feeling intrinsically connected,” they tell us.

We’re a fully accredited, community-based Jewish independent school that combines outstanding academics, shared heritage and a deep understanding of Jewish religion and values. Extending from kindergarten through Grade 7, RJDS represents the entire spectrum of the Jewish community.

Welcome to our school! Explore our site to find out how RJDS encourages critical and creative thinking, engages children intellectually and fosters the growth of moral integrity. Call us for a personal tour to see our work in action.


RJDS Annual Giving Campaign

Each spring, RJDS launches our annual giving campaign designed to supplement the funds not covered by tuition and government grants-funds that makes an RJDS education an exceptional one. Your investment in RJDS allows our students to fulfill their potential and tackle new ideas, new opportunities and new challenges. It is also an investment in the Jewish future.  Please make your donation to the campaign today!
