Travel brings us to new experiences and learning, and also to each other, as companions. Traveling together builds community both during the trips and when we return to the synagogue. Over the years, NVHC has put together some wonderful travel opportunities. From the trips to Israel, day trips to Philadelphia, and teen trips to New York and Chicago, our congregants have shown a love of travel, and especially for travel with NVHC.

We are looking forward strategically so that we can plan community trips as a mainstay of NVHC’s robust Lifelong Learning and engagement programs.

Below are listed four upcoming travel opportunities. Please look them over, then fill out this short form to tell us which trips you are interested in participating in, and if you have other ideas about where you’d like to see us go in the future!

Please respond by November 28,2019 so that we begin to plan further for each trip.
