The reverence and joy with which we celebrate all Jewish holidays is special, and is something you won’t find at any other seniors’ residence in Western Canada. At Louis Brier, you can continue to celebrate the Jewish Holidays, observing simchas and keeping traditions in your own familiar way.
We observe and celebrate all Jewish holidays through time-honoured traditions, kosher holiday meals, music, special events and activities. Our Passover Seders and Rosh Hashanah dinners are particularly special, and your family members and friends are always welcome to participate in our celebrations. We respect the multi-faceted ways by which you observe, and we invite you to add your own special touch to each celebration.
In addition, we also offer non-Jewish and ecumenical observances so that residents can celebrate their personal spirituality. At Louis Brier, we want to promote the concept that living in long-term care can be exciting, thought-provoking, stimulating and meaningful.
