Welcome to Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation

Here you will find warmth and joy, community and purpose.

We would like to welcome you to Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation, a growing congregation of families and individuals whose lives reflect a sense of belonging and commitment to each other, our families, the State of Israel, and the larger Jewish world.

Every member at every age, every level of knowledge or practice is supported, challenged and stimulated by an increased understanding of Jewish values and spiritual enrichment.
