United Hebrew Geriatric Center (UHGC) has unveiled as new name, logo and tagline, as it marks a significant milestone in the organization's history. The agency will now be known as United Hebrew.:
"In commemoration of our 90 th anniversary this year, we have renamed United Hebrew Geriatric Center and will now be known as United Hebrew," said Michael Rozen, Chair of the United Hebrew Board of Directors. "As our residences and services have modernized, our name became antiquated. “We are proud that our new name and logo reflect the very essence of who we are.”
Ninety years ago, The United Home for Aged Hebrews was founded in New Rochelle by the Krakauer Charity and Aid Society to serve the needs of indigent, Jewish elderly in the community. As the years progressed, the organization expanded and became known as United Hebrew Geriatric Center. Throughout its history, UHGC continued to meet the changing needs of the area's aging population.
Today, all residences and services are housed on United Hebrew's Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus, named for the Weinberg Foundation, which endowed UHGC with a very generous gift.
"Our new tagline, ‘The art of caring for generations,' is a testament to our remarkable ability to create a loving and nurturing community both on our campus and outside of our campus walls. Our excellence in caregiving is an art we have refined over the course of generations - one which we look forward to continuing for generations to come," said Rita Mabli, President/CEO of United Hebrew.
