Many people want to stay in their own homes as they get older… commonly known as aging-in-place… staying connected to their family, friends, neighborhood and community institutions.  One way to enable this is through a Village, a non-profit membership organization that provides direct support, social activities, volunteer opportunities and coordination of services such as transportation, health and wellness programs, and home repairs.  Nationally, the Villages movement has become a game changer in how people age.  For more information, visit the website of the Village-to-Village Network.

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills is proud to announce that, along with Temple Isaiah, and Congregation Kol Ami, we have received a major, multi-year Cutting Edge Grant from The Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. The Cutting Edge Grant* has been awarded to create and establish “The Synagogue Village"… a participatory, intentional community that directs resources, talents, services and energies to enable members to age-in-place.
