B’nai B’rith NSW
B’nai B’rith NSW is the peak body of B’nai B’rith in New South Wales. It co-ordinates the activities of all NSW Constituents as well as those of our other State bodies, including, the BB Retirement Villages, B’nai B’rith Centre, the Youth and Welfare Committees, Courage to Care (NSW), the B’nai B’rith Singers, the B’nai B’rith Players, and many more.
The provision of self-care accommodation for older people in a caring Jewish environment has been the driving force for B’nai B’rith Retirement Villages from the first ideas in 1950 to the completion of the first buildings in 1965. BBRV is an independent organisation.
The initial construction of 24 units at Kadimah Gardens in Wahroonga has now grown to 103 units with the second village Princess Gardens in Rose Bay opening in 1974.
The concepts of “ageing in place” and “affordability” are seen as most important for those seniors seeking constancy in their lives.
