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.

Upcoming Events

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.

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.

We believe our Judaism exists as a vehicle through which we leave our own unique footprint in the quest for justice and equality for all people, everywhere. We draw our inspiration from Torah, from our prayers, and from our brothers and sisters across the globe who work tirelessly to make the world a better and more peaceful place. NVHC offers many opportunities to make a difference right here in our own community. Choose an area below and learn how you can be an agent of change at NVHC, in Reston, and beyond.
