The Jewish Collaborative of Orange County (JCoOC) does not hold its programs and services in a single building or location. Instead, JCoOC offers substantive Jewish programs on an a-la-carte basis in different areas of Orange County.
It doesn’t matter where you live; our programs are open to anyone from anywhere in the county. However, we focus on bringing programs to certain areas of the county that have specific needs for Jewish programming.
Laguna Beach Area
Laguna area young families, empty nesters and those in between will find a JCoOC program that meets their needs. We gratefully acknowledge that JCoOC Laguna programs are supported by an Impact Grant from the Family Philanthropy Venture Fund of Jewish Federation & Family Services, Orange County.
Take a look at our Laguna programs!
