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.

Immediate and short-term needs already total $20 million and include:
 

  • Helping people make Aliyah to Israel 
  • Securing the local community and its institutions
  • Maintaining critical welfare services
  • Assisting internally displaced people in multiple locations.  
  • Launching an emergency hotline
  • Securing temporary housing for people in transit
  • Purchasing satellite phones to maintain communications across the region
  • Securing five Jewish schools and training staff to manage crisis needs

The KOL Yisrael Joint Programming Committee invites the community to submit items for curation for the first Jewish Museum of the Hudson Valley at a campus-wide event.

Submissions are being accepted through August 15th. Examples of items to submit include but are not limited to Jewelry, Family heirlooms, and Artifacts of significance. We will publicly display these items in a secure room in the building on that day. Owners can stand next to their displays to share the history and meaning with museum guests. Security will be provided to ensure the safety of the presenters and artifacts. If the presenter prefers, a photograph of the item can be displayed instead of the actual item.

Please submit a picture and brief description of your item for consideration here. Final decisions will be made by 8/31/22 here.
