Stephen H. Gordon
Chair of the Board
We open doors to Jewish life through programming for families with young children and for young adults, offer leadership development opportunities, give grants that support local Jewish organizations, and make it possible for community members of all ages to visit Israel, many for the first time.
We bring the community together around important issues like combating Antisemitism and the delegitimization of Israel, as well as offering opportunities for Israel education and advocacy, and engaging in a variety of community relations activities through the Rose Project of Jewish Federation & Family Services.
We care for the most vulnerable members of our community, including many of the 300 Holocaust survivors living in Orange County today and adults with special needs. We also provide resources, information, and referral for community members facing financial crises.
We are grateful to each and every person who makes our work possible. Our supporters are helping to shape the future of Jewish Orange County by sharing of their time, treasure, and talent.
