Welcome to Jewish Federation & Family Services of Orange County

We open doors to Jewish life in Orange County.


Centrally located in Irvine, Jewish Federation & Family Services reaches across the county to build and strengthen Jewish life through programming, partnerships, philanthropy, and support for local Jewish organizations and congregations.
