About the project

The Byer Home for the Aged (also called Beit Byer) was built in 1983 to serve as home to 130 senior citizens ranging from those who are independent to those requiring full-time medical and nursing supervision. The Jerusalem Foundation has supported major construction and renovation projects at the home over the years, including: creation of the Celia & Leslie Gluck Day Care Center, which provides meals, cultural and physical activities, day trips and transportation to approximately 80 senior citizens a day who live outside the home; construction of the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Wing, a two-story addition that increased residential capacity at the home by 50% in 1996, and renovations to the wing for the frail elderly named the Margaret Bloom Wing in 2001.The Foundation also has supported cultural and therapeutic programs at the home over the years.
