Place gelatin in a large bowl. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add gelatin to cream cheese and beat until combined. Whip in orange juice, lemon juice, and orange rind. Pour into 1-quart gelatin mold and chill until firm, about one hour. Unmold and serve.

Gelatin salads can be tricky to unmold. Try these tips: To loosen the gelatin, moisten tips of clean fingers with water and gently pull gelatin from edge of mold. Dip the mold in warm water for 10 seconds (just up to the rim of the mold) for easier removal.
