VIRTUAL EVENTS

Dear Friends,

In the interest of public health, we have made the difficult decision to close The Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando offices and the Roth Family Jewish Community Center until further notice.

We believe that this decision is in the best interest of our community. We are committed to doing everything in our power to help stop the spread of this virus.

I want to stress that there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 on our campus. We are continuing to monitor the situation, and we remain in daily contact with public health officials. During this time, we will communicate new information via email, our website, and social media.

We appreciate your cooperation, understanding, and support during this situation. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Keith Dvorchik,
Executive Director
