Young Families of Alexandria/Arlington

Proudly presented by Agudas Achim Congregation and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
Join us for our Young Families Programs!

Connect With Other Young Families

   Welcome! Young Families of Alexandria and Arlington offers a place where families raising Jewish children can meet one other, celebrate together, and build community.
   In addition to Shabbat and holiday programming, we offer many other opportunities for families to "do something Jewish" with friends and neighbors. Some events are organized by Agudas Achim and others by volunteers. All families are welcome, regardless of synagogue membership or affiliation.
   Check our website often for information about upcoming events and to find helpful resources. You can also follow us on Facebook. We hope to see you soon!
   Questions or ideas? Contact Jen, Director of Young Family Engagement.
