Image result for compassionate handsAt the Jewish Collaborative of Orange County, our values are rooted in empathy and compassion. We offer programs and resources to support those who have suffered the loss of a loved one on their journey through grief to meet them where they are, and help them move toward renewed hope, healing and peace.

Rabbi Tilchin is available for pastoral visits, emotional support, and end-of-life needs. Please mail her at or call (949) 402-8004.

We also offer OC Egal, a nightly egalitarian minyan, for those observing Yahrzeit or wishing to recite Kaddish.


Online Bereavement Support Groups

The Jewish Collaborative and L'Chaim Village invite those who are navigating a path of grief to join us for online bereavement support. This twice-a-month gathering is an opportunity to share our respective journeys through grief toward healing.
