Food Packing
Apr 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Did you know that hundreds of kids in Fairfax County go home from school on Friday knowing that their next meal will not be until they return to school Monday morning?  NVHC Change  is helping to fight food insecurity and fill hungry tummies through the Weekend Snack Bag program for Forest Edge Elementary School and Clearview Elementary School. Once a month, NVHC Change volunteers donate food and pack 225 gallon sized bags with healthy snacks to send home with children in need, right here in Reston.

Come help us back the bags! Packing dates for the 2018-2019 school year are: September 23, October 28, November 11, December 16, January 20, February 24, March 24, April 28, and May 19.

Adult B’nai Mitzvah
May 1 @ 10:30 pm - 12:00 am

Never became a Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Now is your time! Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah as an adult provides a unique opportunity to explore Jewish thought, practice and ritual. This is an 18-month class, with lively conversation on a variety of topics including liturgy and prayer, holidays, lifecycle, text study, theology, Reform Judaism. This is an amazing way to speak to your Jewish soul, to create community through shared learning, doing mitzvot and building relationships with others, lasting long beyond the class itself. It is also an opportunity for adults to learn the skills to be called to the Torah. Each class member will have the opportunity to read from the Torah as desired, and to help lead the congregation, culminating with a Shabbat morning celebration on March 7, 2020.

Navigating Interfaith Family Life @ Social Hall
May 5 @ 9:30 pm - 12:00 am
Join us as we discuss the challenges and joys of interfaith family life. We’ll begin the evening with a dairy pot luck meal where we will connect with each other and share stories and strategies to address personal challenges. Then a multi-generational panel will talk about how they navigate family life—whether as a teen in an interfaith family, as a couple raising children as part of an interfaith family, or as a parent/grandparent whose children or grandchildren are part of an interfaith family.” Finally, we’ll explore ways that NVHC can continue the dialogue and potentially implement an ongoing program to support interfaith families. Please RSVP here and indicate what type of dish you will bring.
