Welcome to NVHC

We are welcoming, curious, funny, intellectually demanding, musical, inclusive, open minded and committed to living a Jewish life.  We have decided to focus on how we engage youth and young adults and ensure the Jewish future (atid), how we build Community (kehilah), and how we act to make the world a more just, peaceful and compassionate place (tzedek).  Find your entryway, your niche, and join us in creating a flourishing Jewish life.

Future

"And the old shall dream dreams as the youth shall see visions" (Joel 3:1). We learn from tradition and honor our past, but our priority is to build for the next generation. That begins with our infants, in our preschool and at Tot Shabbat. It continues in our youth learning programs from Kehillat Limmud for younger kids to Tamid for teens. And we do not overlook our students when they leave for college or return to join us as independent young adults. Find your gateway below.

    Preschool

    NVHC Preschool offers a warm and loving environment for the youngest members of our community.Our program allows children to learn by exploring, experimenting, and observing, while building a strong foundation in their Jewish identity through blessings, music, activities, and stories.

Community

"All of Israel is responsible one for another" (Babylonian Talmud, Shevuot 39a). A community is a place where people come together. At NVHC, we come together through laughter and tears, in work and in play, while learning and praying, in times of celebration and times of mourning. We strive to be a community where you will find support, joy, comfort, friendship, knowledge, acceptance, and opportunities for personal growth. Welcome to together. We are so glad you are here.
