The Cedar Village Foundation (CVF) was created to serve as the sole supporting organization of Jewish Home of Cincinnati (JHC) in order to fund programs serving Jewish older adults in our community, including those living at Majestic Care of Cedar Village in Mason, Ohio. The need for two entities became obsolete with the sale of Cedar Village, and in 2023, CVF was formally merged into JHC.
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. 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 JHC’s mission of enhancing the lives of seniors.
Cedar Village was sold in 2018, and is now known as Majestic Care of Cedar Village (MCCV). In 2023, CVF formally merged into JHC, which continues to provide funds for kosher options for MCCV residents who choose them. In addition, JHC supports pastoral care, Shabbat observance, Jewish holidays and cultural programs, a kosher advisor, and art and music therapies at the community. Judaica owned by JHC is on loan to Majestic Care of Cedar Village and displayed throughout the building.
We extend our thanks to the community members who served on the CVF Board of Directors prior to the merger with JHC in 2023
