Carolina Foundation for Jewish Seniors, the new name of BJH FOUNDATION, was built upon a fundamental need to care for Jewish seniors in North and South Carolina.
The Blumenthal Jewish Home for the Aged (the Home), was established in 1962 providing nursing care for Jewish residents at a facility. The physical structure for that care was located in Clemmons, North Carolina.
In the late 1990’s, the Board of Directors decided to expand the support and better serve Jewish seniors in the Carolinas by selling the facility and utilizing an existing endowment to form CFJS (BJH Foundation). We are proud to say CFJS now serves many more Jewish seniors by distributing grants to non-profit organizations providing life enriching programs to Jewish seniors in North and South Carolina.
