Jewish Community Events

Message from Jewish Senior Services Regarding wait lists
What a difference a year makes!  We’re so proud of how we’ve changed lives with Connecticut’s first “Household Model” nursing home (The Jewish Home).  Consistent with Jewish values and traditions, the Mission of Jewish Senior Services® is to assure Jewish seniors the health care, housing and geriatric services required to achieve the highest possible quality of life reasonably attainable for them. With that said, we’d like to remind you that it’s never too early to put your loved ones name on the WAIT LIST for Long-Term Care and Assisted Living – please know that members of the Jewish Community will be welcomed on a priority basis.  There are no costs or obligations. For more information, please contact Liz Lockwood at 203.396.1024 or
