Virginia Jewish Life, formerly known as The Virginia Jewish News is the first and only magazine catering to Jewish communities across the state. What began as a weekly local paper in Richmond in 1977 has grown into a thriving, successful, state-wide magazine covering all aspects of Jewish life. Our uniquely inclusive perspective has been enthusiastically embraced by Jewish readers from every corner of Virginia.
Virginia Jewish Life explores Virginia's Jewish soul. From holidays and Jewish practice, to food, art and commentary, VJL uncovers what is Jewish about your neighborhood. We play Jewish Geography every month, and give you an inside look at the rich Jewish history of our Commonwealth. We also report the achievements and milestones that give nachas to all Jewish Virginians.
Intelligent commentary, engaging human interest stories, insightful book reviews, relevant educational themes, VJL is the go-to source on living Jewish in Virginia. Regular features include:
- Regional News
