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.



Once again we are pleased to offer you this package of 10 beautiful Rosh HaShanah postcards created by 5 very talented children in our community.
For the low price of  $10 you will receive 2 of each card, postal approved size, ready to be mailed to friends and family. What could be easier?
Simply complete the secure form here and your cards will be mailed to you.


We are one month into our Virtual Walk to Israel and we have traveled 1074 miles! That puts us one third the way across the Atlantic Ocean.  We are going to need your help to make it to Israel by Rosh Hashanah. It couldn't be easier--after you sign up you can join our Strava Club or manually log your miles. You can walk, run, bike, Peloton, rollerblade--you name it. It's fun, easy, and helps support your Jewish community.
We may have been staying home this past year but that can't stop our hearts from being with our family in Israel. We need your help as our community attempts to travel a cumulative 5,681 miles to get us from Orange County, NY to Jerusalem before Rosh Hashanah!
PLUS send us pictures so we can post on social media and cheer our community on!
                                                         Sign up today here.
Details on how to track your progress will be sent following your registration.
