With the Sinai Residences, our goal is to create an environment that will attract the active, future residents who are a part of the vibrant South Florida Jewish community.

Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County leadership and South Florida dignitaries will gather for a traditional “topping off” ceremony for the Sinai Residences of Boca Raton on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It marks a celebration of an almost-finished construction site, an expression of hope for the secure completion of the structure, and a blessing for the building and its more than 450 future inhabitants. South Florida’s newest planned Life Care Community is a $250 million project scheduled to open in November/December of 2015. The development, which broke ground one year ago, will feature 237 luxury units tailored toward the active senior population of South Florida; 99 percent is already reserved.

Jewish Federation board members, other leaders and senior staff, the Sinai Residences development team, local dignitaries and select future residents will be in attendance. Rabbi David Englander of B’nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton will lead the blessings for the ceremony. An American flag that flew over the capitol in Washington, D.C., and which was gifted to the Federation from U.S. Congressman Ted Deutch will be raised along with a pine tree – both ceremonial traditions. To top off Sinai Residences, an Israeli flag will also be raised.

“The creation of Sinai Residences not only serves the need of the growing senior population in South Florida seeking out a safe, luxury and educational environment to live, but also helps the Federation generate revenue to enhance the vital human services and programs we support,” said Melvyn Lowell, COO, Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. “The goal is to create an environment that will attract the active, future residents who will become a part of the vibrant South Florida Jewish community.”

The Sinai Residences will offer the highest standard of engaged senior living and feature a wealth of luxury services and amenities including hospitality, recreational and social services, cultural and academic pursuits, fitness programs, as well as gourmet dining with kosher dining available. The Kosher dining experience will be overseen by a Mashgiach, and will be certified as Glatt Kosher. Sinai Residences will also enjoy front-row access to the many Federation-sponsored cultural, social and educational events. Fourteen varying floor plans range in size from approximately 800 to 1,700 square feet.

As a CCRC or Continuing Care Retirement Community, Sinai residents can age in place with security; housing, health care, amenities and services are provided for them; and when residents pass on, heirs receive up to 95 percent of value of home. As a Life Care community, residents are guaranteed access to every level of care at a predictable monthly cost, and with refundable entry-fee options. Access to health care is also guaranteed to residents from the moment they move-in, and for as long as they remain residents.

Sinai Residences of Boca Raton is located on the north side of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County campus in Boca Raton, Florida. The Sinai Residences will fill nearly half of a 50 acre parcel that has been vacant on the Federation’s West Boca campus since it first officially opened in 1991. The project has already brought more than 400 full-time construction-related jobs to the area. Additionally, more than 150 full time employees will be needed once the Sinai Residences are complete.

“The impact of Sinai Residences already on the local economy has been undeniable,” said Aimee Kaye, President and Founding Partner of Sageview Consulting, a Human Resources firm that has been engaged to consult with the Sinai Residences team. “And as the Residences near completion, more skilled local workers in the hospitality, operations and service industries will be needed.”

The Sinai Residences development team, led by Greenbrier Development of Dallas, Texas, includes Suffolk Construction, Perkins-Eastman Architects, H.J. Sims & Co. investment bankers, among others. In addition, Life Care Services, Inc. and Executive Director Chris Newport will manage the new community.
