Jewish Home Foundation gala a great success

Jewish Home Foundation gala a great success

Nearly 350 members of the community celebrated with the Jewish Home Family on October 6 at its annual black tie gala at the Rockleigh in Rockleigh. Members of its board of governors; residents and their families; staffers; many state legislators, including former Governor Richard Cody, and other supporters feted this year’s honoree, Leon Sokol of Teaneck. He was cited for both his longtime support and commitment to the mission of the Jewish Home Family, his dedication to and leadership of Bergen County’s Jewish community, and his unwavering support of Israel. 

The evening’s journal raised more than $847,000 to help support programs and services for the enrichment of the lives of seniors in our community, both in the Jewish Home’s facilities and in their homes.

A short film, “Advancing the Art of Living,” premiered at the dinner; now it’s online at 

The Jewish Home Family and its member entities — Jewish Home at Rockleigh, Jewish Home Assisted Living, Jewish Home at Home, and Jewish Home Foundation — are not-for-profit organizations that provide long-term care, sub-acute rehabilitation, elder abuse shelter, outreach programs, and outpatient services for the elderly and their families. The Jewish Home Family’s mission is to develop and oversee the very best of care, services, and advice for the elderly and their families, both at home and in their facilities, now and in the future.
