About Us

Growing Jewish Families cultivates community and connects families raising Jewish children in Northern Virginia by sponsoring playdates and community events, organizing neighborhood groups, and maintaining social networking groups on Yahoo, Meetup, and Facebook — all to help you connect and stay connected with families in your area.

As a part of this network, you will have access to ambassadors who can help you connect with other Jewish families as well as educational and social opportunities in your own backyard. You will receive monthly digital newsletters chock-full of educational information and links, announcements of upcoming local children’s programs and family events, and more.

Growing Jewish Families continues to broaden its reach to serve even more areas throughout Northern Virginia. Programming sites include the areas of Alexandria, Arlington, Ashburn, Broadlands, Burke, Chantilly, Centreville, Fairfax, Gainesville, Herndon, Manassas, Leesburg, Reston, Springfield, Sterling, and Vienna.
