It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts President Toby Richmond.


The funeral will be Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 1PM at Beth Israel. Burial will follow at B'nai Brith Cemetery. Following the burial, the family will be returning to Beth Israel through evening minyan (7PM).


Shiva will continue Friday (6/23) from 1PM-4PM and Sunday (6/25) from 1PM-4PM and 6PM-8PM with evening services at 7:30PM at the home of Eric and Maria Richmond, 90 Lynnwood Lane, Worcester, MA 01609.


Toby was an extraordinary supporter of our Jewish community and worked tirelessly on behalf of all of our agencies and organizations. She was a tremendous force for good and her presence will certainly be missed.

We wish Toby's husband Chuck, and the Richmond and Noar families comfort in this time of loss.
