Why Choose The New Jewish Home

Any entity that has been around for 170 years has learned a thing or two and is definitely doing something right…

We are forward thinkers, looking ahead to best serve the needs of our residents and their families and delivering the best care in both health and hospitality.


As trends and needs in the care of older Americans change, we adapt our services to ensure we are not only on par with our competitors, but ahead of the curve. We keep an open mind as to what will best serve the health and well being of our residents and those who utilize our services.  



Hannah Leo, our Founder, clearly embodied Jewish values, which she built into the very fabric of the New Jewish Home: to love our fellow human beings, to care for the needy, to welcome the stranger and guest, to tend to the Earth and care for animals, and to respect our elders.  Today, we serve people of all faiths, of all backgrounds – all are welcome and all are loved, cared for and most importantly, are respected.


So many cultures around the world, and indeed, even in Western culture, rooted by Native Americans, the older members of a family were treasured. Cultures around the world embrace the whole of life, so wisdom and life experiences are sought by younger family members.  Filial piety and brotherly respect is an expectation, not an option. Hwan-gap is the Korean celebration of the 60th birthday, when one passes into the older stages of life, not possible without modern medicine, so great gratitude is shared and age is celebrated. With so many cultures alive and thriving at the New Jewish Home, combating ageism is not only possible, it is probable.


New Yorkers have an unapologetic attitude: they know who they are, what they want and how to get it. Older New Yorkers have that same NY attitude, and they always will. At the New Jewish Home, we are New Yorkers too; we GET that attitude, because we HAVE that attitude…it’s what makes us who we are. When we talk about “aging like a New Yorker”, it is all about helping you retain that attitude, that confidence, that swagger, that got you so far in your life. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, it’s up to you, you fabulous New Yorker you…we are just here to help.


Our housing options in the Bronx offer the best of both worlds.

Manhattan, Bronx and Westchester

One of the biggest decisions a family may have to make is to determine how to provide care for aging parents or relatives when those older New Yorkers are no longer able to live independently.
