Shalom Tidewater

New to the Tidewater area or lived here all your life but looking to get more involved? The United Jewish Federation of Tidewater would like to give a special welcome to you.

Through our Shalom Tidewater program, Matthew Kramer-Morning will deliver a welcome information and gift basket to all new Jewish members of our community.

The Federation offers this service to anyone who has recently moved to the Tidewater area or who plans to move into the area.

Each welcome bag is filled with information and brochures from Jewish organizations and synagogues, as well as information about local arts, leisure, and entertainment venues in the general community. It also comes with some special extra goodies.

Have questions? Want a tour of the Simon Family JCC? Reach out to Matt directly at or 757-321-2341. He is happy to smooth your transition.
