Beth Chaverim Reform Congregation is a vibrant, community-centered Reform Jewish congregation in Ashburn, Virginia.
Beth Chaverim means “House of Friends” in Hebrew. And that is what you will find at Beth Chaverim Reform Congregation. We are a welcoming community, connecting with one another and centuries of Jewish tradition. We are filled with energy, warmth and spiritual meaning. We celebrate our diversity – we are young families, seniors, singles, teens, empty nesters, interfaith families, same sex couples, Jews by birth and Jews by choice. We are more than a congregation – we’re a family, a community and friends.
