Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for philanthropy, which is a combination of the words ‘charity’ and ‘social justice.’ 

This combination of words teaches us that social responsibility must be done with someone rather than to someone. The Jewish Home of Cincinnati exists to enrich the well-being of Jewish seniors, and together with your gifts, we are able to support a myriad of organizations that share our mission to work with our community. 

The Jewish Home of Cincinnati is a 501[c][3] nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax-deductible as determined by IRS regulations.
