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.
