What is the Village Movement?

The concept behind the Village Movement is simple.  A group of people -- usually age 50 and older -- join together to create a virtual community that provides its members with social connections and helpful services, with the aim of allowing members to remain in their homes for as long as possible. There are over 200 Villages around the country with many more in the works.

Why is ChaiVillageLA Different from All other Villages?

Our village is the first synagogue-based village in the country! Congregants from Temple Isaiah and Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills joined together to create a village that enables its members to stay in the homes and neighborhoods they love as they grow older. The result is ChaiVillageLA, a vibrant, multi-generational virtual village that is member-led and based on Jewish values.
Over 200 temple members have joined ChaiVillageLA. Our members partake in a wide array of social, educational and cultural programs.  ChaiVillagers are there for each other -- checking in on fellow members with friendly visits, rides to the doctor, bowls of chicken soup -- and friendship.
