Religious Life

CJE SeniorLife’s mission of enhancing the lives of older adults is based on the Jewish values of respect, advocacy, compassion, intention, innovation, and accountability.

We know that a healthy spiritual life is the foundation of the well-being of older adults and their positive aging.

Guided by our Jewish values of respect, advocacy, compassion, intention, innovation, and accountability, we follow a holistic model in serving our older adults and their families, providing for the needs of the entire person—mind, body, and spirit.

We also acknowledge and respect the broad spectrum of religious needs and preferences of clients, residents, and their families.
