Our History

1997 - Founded by 5 families looking for place to celebrate their Judaism and educate their children in a liberal Jewish setting. First services held at local Ruritan Club and member homes and led by a visiting rabbinical student.

1998 - Hired student rabbi and established a home for religious school. Continued to hold services at rotating locations.

2005- A property to purchase was identified and the congregation decided to pursue the opportunity to find a permanent home.
 
2007 – After a period of significant growth, BCRC moved into its first permanent congregational home in Ashburn VA.

2010 – Hired our first full-time rabbi.

Today - Today, we carry on our entrepreneurial legacy with substance, vitality and vision. We now have over 130 families in our congregation and over 130 children are enrolled in our religious school in grades pre-K through 11.
