“We want to connect more of the 90,000 people in the Jewish community in Northern Virginia to Jewish life,” says board president Scott Brown. “The new outreach effort will bring programming to other areas of the county, and the JCCNV will carry out an effort to understand what kind of programs and services people want.”

The JCCNV’s main building is also going through some renovations. The lobby and art gallery have already been upgraded, and new retractable seating will be installed in the auditorium.
