Spiritual Living and Jewish Life

Our Orthodox Tradition

The Spiritual Living Department offers a variety of programs to provide enrichment. Its three full-time Orthodox Rabbis engage residents in Judaic culture, Torah learning, intergenerational events, Chessed (Social Action) programs, spirituality classes, and weekly Oneg Shabbat gatherings. For information about any of our Spiritual Living programs, please call 216-831-5452, ext. 256.

Prayer services are offered in the Orthodox tradition in the Jennie & Jacob Sapirstein Synagogue next to the Menorah Park auditorium, which include daily services, Sunday through Friday at 8:00 a.m. and
4:15 p.m., and on Saturdays and Holidays at 9:00 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. Morning minyan is followed by a full kosher breakfast.

Additional holiday programming and hours are listed in each month's activities calendar.

For Rosh Hashannah and Passover, residents and their families can sign up for banquets and Seder meals on evenings of both holidays (a charge applies to families).

Kosher Supervision

Our Rabbis carefully assure our high kosher standards under the guidance of our Senior Mashgiach and in consultation with Star K Kosher Supervision. To protect our kosher standards, no food may be brought into the Home, or stored in rooms (with the exception of fresh fruits and vegetables).

Supporting Spiritual Life for All Residents

Menorah Park offers Jewish Services in the Reform and Conservative traditions with the help of community Rabbis at each residence. Please refer to the residential monthly calendars for dates and times.

In respect to our non-Jewish residents, services in the Catholic and Protestant traditions are offered by communiy clergy on-site in our Rosenbluth Creative Arts Center once each month.

Rabbis and Chaplains are available for pastoral support and counseling.
