Our Mission

To provide quality and comprehensive residential, healthcare and community-based services to individuals of all faiths, in a manner that reflects our Jewish traditions and values.

While much has changed over the years, our founding principles have remained the same – to serve our residents with kindness, dignity, respect and patience. It is our honor to provide a true home for those who choose to live here, allowing them to live as independently as possible no matter how their health needs may change in the future.


Beth Sholom (“House of Peace”) opened in 1945 in the Fan District of Richmond, Virginia, as the first Jewish home for seniors in the state. Guided by faith-based values such as kindness, respect and patience, our facility was soon associated with compassionate nursing care. Beth Sholom moved to a larger campus in the West End of Richmond following a period of rapid growth.

Today, our community is composed of an independent living apartment complex (The Woods), two assisted living communities (Parkside and The Gardens), a Healthcare Center with skilled nursing and a full spectrum of rehabilitative care, Generations Home Health,  and an Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic. Several of our facilities also offer dedicated memory care units.

“Quality of life and quality of care for residents is of the utmost importance. Our goal is always to maximize their potential.”

– Robin Abbott, Administrator of The Woods
