CJE is extremely excited to have an opportunity to manage this independent living community on the North Shore and add it to our portfolio of residential options for active adults,” said CJE President and CEO Dan Fagin. “Located across from the highly–recognized and well-established Weinberg Community, this building will help CJE fulfill its mission to enhance the lives of older adults by adding breadth to our continuum of care. We are responding to a need for an upscale rental option for older adults in the Jewish and the larger community who have decided to downsize and let someone else do the cooking, housekeeping, and yard work!
