Director - Volusia and Flagler Counties

Jewish Federation of Volusia and Flagler Counties Ormond Beach FL

The Jewish Federation of Volusia and Flagler Counties is the central organization for the Jewish population of Volusia and Flagler counties and is dedicated to fostering Jewish values and promoting the quality of Jewish life. The Federation is further committed to the unity of the Jewish community, welfare of the state of Israel, and helping those in need both locally and nationally.
 

Our Federation is located on the east central coast of Florida between the St. John’s River and the Atlantic Ocean. Florida’s warm climate makes outdoor play on our beautiful beaches (“The world’s most famous beach”) and parks possible year-round. It is home to the Daytona International Speedway, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and other educational institutions, and is only an hour from the many attractions in Orlando. The area is experiencing tremendous growth with many families moving here. The housing market is lower than many metropolitan areas, making this area an ideal place to live and work.
