NRE NOVA Council

Northern Region East

About Northern Region East: NoVA Council


Northern Region East: Northern Virginia Council is comprised of chapters among Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun Counties. We have 5 chapters throughout the Northern Virginia area, representing over 180 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of NoVA Council, teens are afforded the opportunity to experience local programming in their communities, regional programming such as dances, community service days, sports events, and weekend-long conventions, and international programming at large scale conferences and BBYO Summer Experiences.

Our chapters hold events every 2 weeks at locations around the region. Events are planned by teens for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like apple picking for Rosh Hashanah, to collecting over 400 pounds of food for a local food bank. A parent, advisor, or regional staff­ member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.

Fun Fact: Our Council colors are red and black, and our Mascot is Opus the Penguin!

Through youth-lead and staff-supported programs, NoVA Council gives our members opportunities to develop leadership skills and positively affect their communities, the world, and themselves. We constantly strive to provide more Jewish teens with more meaningful Jewish experiences each and every day, so that they may become the future Jewish leaders in their communities and in the Jewish world at large.
