Daughters of Sarah Senior Community draws its inspiration and strength from the Jewish
values upon which committed Jewish men and women founded it in 1942, and we respect
and foster Jewish traditions that evoke cultural identity and a feeling of safety
and familiarity among our Jewish residents. We are careful to maintain a Jewish atmosphere
throughout our campus. There are a variety of religious and cultural celebrations held during
the year. Sabbath services are held each Friday evening and Saturday morning, and rabbis
are available for counseling and personal visits. In response to the diversity of our
residents, other religious leaders are available.
While our commitment draws us to observe
only Jewish holidays in public areas, when possible, we like to facilitate the same feelings
of safety and familiarity around religious traditions for our non-Jewish residents. In December
2006, we were happy to welcome Bishop Howard Hubbard to perform a Christmas Mass for our
Catholic and other Christian residents.
