History

In 1920, five visionary women with a passionate cause went door to door, asking support from the Jewish Community in Rochester to create a Jewish Home for the aging. Their efforts were successful; the Jewish Home of Rochester has provided premier services for seniors, emphasizing the values of caring, compassion, integrity and quality for nearly 100 years.

Mission

To enhance the quality of life, health, and well-being of Jewish older adults, their families, and others in our community, consistent with the values and traditions of our Jewish heritage.
