There are many pathways to spiritual uplift.  JCoOC offers a range of worship experiences in people’s homes and community venues that include talented leaders and musicians from throughout Southern California.


Living life to the fullest is to know, first hand, the joy of helping those in need. The virtual paradise we live in can distort our ability to sense the suffering that is all around us. JCoOC is honored to partner with a number of remarkable nonprofits to bring healing through compassionate acts of social justice, to people in our community and around the world.


JCoOC’s family programming features an array of opportunities to build local community in the comfort of our homes, walk the path of life-long learning with our children, and experience the Joy of Jewish customs and tradition in exciting ways.
