Cedar VillageFoundation


The Cedar Village Foundation (CVF) is the sole supporting organization of Jewish Home of Cincinnati (JHC) that exists to fund their efforts to support the needs of Jewish older adults in our community, including those living at the Cedar Village facility in Mason, Ohio.

Our History

Jewish Home of Cincinnati was created in 1992 to own and operate Cedar Village, a residential housing and skilled nursing facility and evolved into a continuing care retirement center (CCRC). Cedar Village was the result of a thoughtful merger between the Glen Manor Home for Jewish Aged and the Orthodox Jewish Home. The Cedar Village Foundation (CVF) was created in 2010 to raise funds to support the facility’s mission of enhancing the lives of its residents.

CVFs mission to support the needs of residents continues on the campus of the Cedar Village facility post sale in May 2018. The Foundation provides funds for freshly prepared kosher meals on premises for residents who choose kosher. In addition, CVF supports pastoral care, Shabbat observance, Jewish holidays and cultural programs, and the arts. Judaica owned by JHC is on loan to Cedar Village and displayed throughout the building.
