NVHC is pleased to announce its collaboration with NOVA Tribe, a group of 20- and 30-somethings who are interested in getting together to celebrate holidays, learn new talents like rolling sushi, take day trips to wine country, play trivia…and, most importantly, work together to make our world a better place.  Thanks to a generous grant from the Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies and the farsighted philanthropy of donors to the NVHC Building Bridges initiative, Stacy Miller, founder and director of NOVA Tribe, has joined the staff of NVHC as our first Young Adult Engagement Coordinator.

NOVA Tribe Series provides innovative programming and leadership activities to Jews in their 20’s and 30’s living and working in Northern Virginia from trivia nights, networking happy hours and Shabbat dinners to community services events and cooking classes, we offer a variety of programs in casual settings where our members can get to know others and make new friends.

There so many ways to get involved with NVHC and your peers in the community!
