Our Stories

We’re proud of the work we do helping enrich the lives of seniors throughout Central Florida. Take a minute to meet the seniors we have worked with, along with the volunteers and staff who help make our organization successful.

Meet Bob Geller

If you want a feel for the “old Orlando,” go spend some time with Bob Geller at Village on the Green. At 101 years old, he spent 70 of those years spent living and working in Central Florida.

Our History

The Jewish Pavilion was founded more than a decade ago to ensure our elders living in senior communities throughout Central Florida can stay connected to their traditions. The organization was originally focused on opening the first “Jewish home” in Orlando, but realized the mission could be served by visiting seniors where they live – in more than 50 communities throughout our region.
