When our members connect with ChaiVillageLA, they feel energized because they are part of a powerful, expansive community.
ChaiVillageLA is part of the rapidly growing Village Movement--it's not a place; it's a virtual community led by older adults who share their optimism, skills, support and expertise with each other to navigate the challenges and opportunities of aging.
ChaiVillageLA is a pioneering initiative by Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills and Temple Isaiah, creating the first synagogue-based village in the country. Together, these two innovative synagogues have established a unique communal and multi-generational system of mutual support, where village members provide each other the programs, services and resources which enable them to live healthier and more engaged lives.
The initial funding for the development and operations of ChaiVillageLA has been provided by a three year "Cutting Edge Grant" awarded by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. ChaiVillageLA began offering programs and events in April 2016, starting with new member get-togethers. Member-provided caring services such as rides and friendly visits, began in early 2017. Today there are over 220 joyous and engaged ChaiVillageLA members.
Growing older doesn't mean we have to stop growing. Our lives offer endless possibility and potential, no matter our age. By coming together as a community, we can grow not just older, but bolder.
