Welcome Chad!

This week, Jewish Federation of Orange County warmly welcomes Chad Schaeffer as our new Senior Director, Community Engagement & Communications. Chad brings to his role a strong passion for community building and Jewish engagement, and a decade of experience as a Jewish professional with Federations in Charlotte, NC and Utah, as well as congregations and JCCs. An OC native, he knows our community well, and is happy to be back in his ‘hometown’!

"I can't thank JFedOC enough for this exciting and meaningful opportunity. I'm eager to start getting out in the community, meeting everyone, putting down roots, and continuing to amplify and sustain Jewish life in Orange County."
