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.

Federation office hours vary. If you call and get no answer, please email director@jewishorangeny.org

Stand Together With Israel

Shalom Federation Community,

As we learned on the news, Hamas launched a war with Israel that has quickly become the most serious security breach since the Yom Kippur War 50 years ago. Many Israelis have already been killed and hundreds hospitalized. Jewish Federations of North America stands in complete solidarity with Israel and Eric Fingerhut, JFNA President and CEO, is currently in Israel. JFNA is coordinating with the Jewish Agency for Israel, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, and the Israel Trauma Coalition, as they prepare to provide the critical care and support to those affected. JFNA has opened an emergency fund to support these efforts. Use this link if you wish to donate to this fund: https://jfeds.org/israelfund2023
