Laguna Woods Region provides a link between our local Jewish Laguna Woods family and the broader Orange County Jewish community. The Laguna Woods Region Board represents Jewish Federation & Family Services, and provides a local rallying point for Jewish community activities.
The Laguna Woods Region plays a vital role in the Generations Fund (formerly known as the Annual Campaign). Each year, Laguna Woods Region raises more than a quarter of a million dollars. Over 700 residents of the retirement community participate in the Generations Fund and enjoy a variety of JFFS-sponsored programs.
The Laguna Woods Region Committee is pleased to be part of the Laguna Woods community. Whether you have recently arrived in our community, or are new to the area, we are delighted to know you're here. We hope you will visit our Web site often to find out how you can become actively involved in our Jewish organizations.

It takes every one of us, giving what we can, to ensure that every Jew in need will have counseling, comfort, food, clothing, shelter, education and the spiritual uplift that comes with knowing they can count on Jewish Federation & Family Services. They can count on JFFS because we can count on you.
