New! Men’s Club

We were looking for a few good men. Boy did we get some! Thirteen men gathered together in March at an interest meeting that led to the establishment of the new Men’s Club of the JCCNV (final name TBD). This group of individuals came from all over the country before landing in Northern Virginia with diverse, often multiple careers as well as interests.

Future club get-togethers will take place on the second Friday of the month. Save the dates: June 14; July 12; and August 9. If interested in attending upcoming events or would like more information about the group please contact Shelly Rosenstein.
