Loudoun County

Leesburg, Virginia is an historic town and county seat of Loudoun County 33 miles west-northwest of Washington, DC along the Catoctin Mountains and adjacent to the Potomac River.  Leesburg has undergone considerable growth and development over the last 30 years, transforming from a small, sleepy, and rural town to a suburban bedroom community for commuters to DC as well as to the Dulles area where many companies are choosing to locate.  The downtown area offers antique shops, art galleries and specialty shops as well as a farmers’ market.   Nearby is Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets. Currently Leesburg continues to serve as the center of government and commerce for Loudoun County. The town’s Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and cited as one of the best preserved and most picturesque downtowns in Virginia.  Loudoun County is home to Dulles Airport and AOL.

In partnership with the northern Virginia synagogues and the JCC of Northern Virginia, The Jewish Federation is bringing more resources to the rapidly-expanding Western Fairfax-Eastern Loudoun suburbs, neighborhoods in which services have traditionally been harder to access because of distance.

Ashburn, one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, with approximately 50,000 residents, is known to be a safe, beautiful, and pleasant place to live. Ashburn is located 30 miles west of Washington, DC and near Washington Dulles International Airport.  Ashburn has a rich history and is famous as horse country with many young families coming to the area in search of a solid school system and a spacious backyard.

The town has premier golf courses, two universities, and is home to AOL, Verizon, Equinix, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and many other high tech corporations.
