Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington

12320 Parklawn Drive
Rockville, MD 20852



The Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA) helps older adults in the Greater Washington, D.C. region maintain independence, dignity, vitality and self-respect. It also helps people of different generations understand, learn from and care for one another. JCA accomplishes this through a myriad of community-based programs built upon vibrant programmatic partnerships with funders, fellow charities and local communities; and by providing opportunities for volunteers to make the National Capital Area a great place to age.

Although our Jewish heritage and values guide our vision and work, JCA is a recognized leader in meeting the needs of seniors and caregivers regardless of their religious beliefs.

Core Values

The Jewish Council for the Aging is:

- Built on the Jewish values of tzedakah (righteous duty) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), as well as the Biblical commandment to honor our parents.

- Person-centered and family-centered and thus is responsive to the needs and goals of individuals, their families and caregivers.

- Driven by the spirit, enthusiasm and hard work of its volunteers and staff.
