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.

The Federation office is temporarily closed.

Please email rachel@jewishorangeny.org if you need assistance.



We hope that the summer of 2021 will be safe enough to send our kids to camp and/or our teens to Israel. With that in mind, we are opening our scholarship application process.

  • Summer camp scholarships for Jewish children residing in Orange County.
  • Full and partial scholarships for educational programs and experiences in Israel for Jewish teens residing in Orange County.

Deadine is March 31st, 2021
