Diversity • Equity • Inclusion

CJE SeniorLife values each of its over 600 full- and part-time workers from diverse backgrounds as well as the more than 20,000 diverse older adults and their families that we help annually.

In doing this we recognize that everyone plays an important part in making up who CJE SeniorLife is. Rooted in Jewish communal values, CJE’s mission is to enhance quality of life and facilitate independence of older adults through our own values: Respect, Advocacy, Compassion, Intention, Innovation and Accountability.

Throughout the year, we recognize, value and embrace the diversity in who we are and who we serve. We also recognize, value and embrace others outside of CJE that have contributed to the greater good and represent the values CJE holds dear.

By learning about our fellow Americans in a community, we can find similarities between differing cultures and practice compassion and respect. Here are some basic facts about Arab American history and cultural identity.
