At NVHC, we believe strongly that our children are vital members of our community. We want our youth to feel that NVHC is their synagogue too – a place where they feel safe, comfortable, and valued. We have three youth groups – NoVTY (Northern Virginia Temple Youth) for 8th-12th graders, NoVTY Jr for 6th & 7th graders, and NoVTY Jr Jr for 3rd-5th graders.
Want more information, have a question, or have a youth group program that you would like to make happen? Contact our Youth Engagement Coordinator.
NoVTY Jr Jr – 3rd-5th Grade
We offer approximately four events throughout the year for 3rd-5th graders. These events are mostly social and give students an opportunity to build bonds with their peers outside of the more formal classroom setting. Past events include trips to Cox Farms, post-KL recess, and Minecraft Sukkot.
NoVTY Jr – 6th & 7th Grade
We offer approximately four events throughout the year for 6th & 7th graders. These events are a chance to socialize, learn, and be introduced to “teenagerly” concepts at NVHC and beyond as they approach teenager-hood. Past events include a trip to TopGolf, Game Show Night, and a B’nai Mitzvah Preview Party.
