Our Mission: To nurture an inclusive and compassionate Jewish community through worship, education, celebration, and social action

Our Synagogue

The Jewish Community of Ojai (JCO) is made up of a socially active group of people who enjoy practicing their faith and spending time with their fellow members.

Founded in 1994, JCO is a  synagogue and community center that strives to preserve tradition while encouraging innovation in Judaism.

In 1999, we moved to our present location.  Major renovations took place in 2014-2018, including a new social hall, a remodeled bimah, the gift from the Jewish Museum of New York of several stained glass windows, depicting Blessings within Judaism, new chandeliers, a remodeled entry hall,  newly installed security systems and a new Rabbi's library/study.                                               

Our Sabbath prayerbook is:                                                                                                                                                                                                   


JCO events include Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, adult education, weddings, funerals, Hebrew School, movies, guest speakers, and community service.
