Since 1983, the Men’s Club has been devoted to the important
work of Jewish Senior Services through its contribution of volunteer and
financial support. These efforts have identified and produced talented new
leadership to help Jewish Senior Services thrive.
The Men’s Club’s mission reflects that of Jewish Senior
Services – to secure continued excellence for future generations in need. For
over 35 years, the Men’s Club has nurtured, enhanced and supported quality of
life programming to benefit the 326 elderly men and women who reside at Jewish Senior
Services. As an integral fundraising partner, the Men’s Club has contributed
more than two million dollars to support programming and services and proudly
supported the development of The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus on Park
Avenue with a $500,000 gift.
