Yes, it is possible.  The regex engine Javascript uses will support this.  The most common method is to have the expression use a unicode value.  In regular expressions this is done with ...

\uNNNN (where NNNN is the four digit unicode value)

Let me know if you have a question or need more info on this.

There is some good info on using unicode in an expression at http://www.regular-expressions.info/unicode.html.

I can provide more info or answer questions about this if needed.
