Jim White, Leader of the Riverdale Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture, grew up on a farm, enjoying the nurturing of his mother, two grandmothers, two great-aunts and a very distinctive great-grandmother. He will speak about some of the special ethical commitments of his life that each helped to develop and will challenge us to visit some of the relationships that have been important in making us the caring, insightful people we've become.

Northern Virginia Ethical Society
Founded September 1983
NoVES welcomes visitors to our diverse community. People of all types, singles, young and old, many colors, many religious and ethnic backgrounds - all have made NoVES their humanistic religious home. We are an Ethical Society in Northern Virginia, a humanist congregation with members around the greater Washington DC area.
The mission of the Northern Virginia Ethical Society is to help accomplish transformation in ourselves, strengthen our relationships to others, and build a more humane world by offering an Ethical Society that promotes ethical growth and learning, builds and sustains community, implements ethical action beyond our community, and administers itself effectively.
We invite you to check us out on a Sunday Morning and to join us in other activities. You might find - as so many others of us have - the sort of caring, thoughtful community you didn't even know was out there - just waiting for you to become a part of it. We also invite you to 'friend' us on facebook by following this link NoVES. Here is a note from our Leader.
Our regular Platform program resumed September 15, 2013 for the season. We always welcome visitors. Please check the Month at a Glance Calendar for details of upcoming events.
Platform Meetings & Sunday School: 11 am most Sundays
NoVES meets at Green Hedges School,
We have a thriving Sunday School! Our children like attending because our Sunday School is a fun, hands on learning environment! Visit our Sunday School page to learn more about what we do and have planned for the year. To let us know you're interested or to seek further information, contact our Director, Religious Education. Get a head start and fill out a Sunday school registration form too! You can enroll any time.
Driving Directions: Take the Nutley Street North exit from Route I-66. At the fourth light, cross Maple Avenue (Route 123) and start watching your odometer. At 0.2 miles, you will see a driveway with “Watch for Turning Vehicles” and “Green Hedges” signs. There will also be an Ethical Society sign next to the driveway. Turn right into the driveway, park in the lot, and take the nearest entrance into the building.
If NoVES must cancel a Sunday Platform meeting, we will post a closing notice on our web site home page, and send an email blast to our members.
