Meet new people, make new friends, be a part of the NVHC community!

As a center of community, as well as of Jewish culture and spirituality, NVHC offers social activities for members of all ages. Social events are sponsored by many groups including our Brotherhood, Women of NVHC, chavurot, and affinity groups. Follow the links below to learn about our many social groups.

  • Brotherhood

    A men’s organization dedicated to serving our congregation, supporting its youth, helping the Jewish community, and building friendships and camaraderie among the men of our community. Click here to learn more.

  • Women of NVHC

    A women’s organization that promotes camaraderie, esprit de corps, spirituality, and participation in tikkun olam – repairing the world – within our congregation and the greater Reston community. Click here to learn more.

  • Affinity Groups

    Affinity groups allow congregants the space to share their love of a specific interest with like minded individuals.

    Affinity Groups:

  • Chavurot

    A small group of people — including couples, individuals, and families — who get together periodically. The primary purpose is to encourage Jewish families to know and interact with other Jewish families. This strengthens community ties and is a window into the synagogue, particularly for new members. Download the brochure for more information.

  • Teen Youth Group

    There are many opportunities for our teens to engage with other teens in their community – through Tamid, our post-b’nai mitzvah program; NoVTY, our local youth group open to all teens; and NFTY, the North American Federation of Temple Youth, our national teen youth movement.

  • Young Families
