Welcome to the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County
Since 1977, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County has been working to build a strong Jewish community that enriches people’s lives, helps those in need, and embraces all Jewish families. With member support, our recipient organizations in Orange County help thousands of people here at home and through the Jewish Federations of North America, aid Jewish communities at risk in Israel and around the world.
Our office is currently closed.

These are uncertain, challenging times for the world, our country, Israel, and our community.
Obviously, this is not business as usual. The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County is committed to your health and well-being and that of the entire community. We, like others, have cancelled public events. In addition, our office will be closed for the time being. But we remain very much open for business to help the hungry, the sick and others at-risk.
Our buildings are closed, but our communities are open.
If you need to reach the Jewish Federation, please email Rabbi Rachel Rubenstein at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also leave us a voicemail at (845)562-7860. We will be checking our voicemail daily and will return you call as soon as we can.
We have been working hard to support our synagogues and religious schools as they transition to online and virtual content. If your synagogue needs a tutorial on Zoom or help in their transition, please have them reach out to email@example.com directly.
We are here to help.
We are working closely with our partners at Jewish Family Service to meet the growing needs of our vulnerable populations. We also know that many of you are looking for opportunities to help the community at this time, through volunteering and donations.
To sign up to help, please contact Sean Gerow at SGerow@jfsorange.org or 845-341-1173 ext. 302.
If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, please call Jewish Family Service at 845-341-1173 and they will work to provide whatever assistance they can.
