Laguna Woods Region of JFOC

The Laguna Woods Region of JFOC includes not only residents of Laguna Woods Village—an independent living community for people 55 and over, with one of the largest concentrations of Jewish households in OC—but also welcomes all Jewish seniors in South Orange County communities.

We provide an important link between those living in South County and Jewish life in the rest of Orange County. Laguna Woods Region sponsors a variety of programs with first-class speakers and entertainers for Jewish seniors to enjoy together in South County. 

Since its founding, Laguna Woods Region has raised millions of dollars for the community through annual gifts, annuities, and bequests to JFOC to help address emergencies and basic Jewish needs locally and throughout the world.
