CEO’s Message

The Saul & Claribel Simkin Centre has roots in providing care to the Jewish elderly dating back to 1915.  Over the last 100+ years, many transformations of the organization have taken place leading to the outstanding facility we have today.

At the heart of our organization is the caring, competent and compassionate staff, a dynamic Leadership Team and a very dedicated Board, community and community partners in The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba and The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg.

Our team is committed to providing excellence in care and service in accordance with Jewish values and traditions, including a commitment to sanctity, respect and honour.

I look forward to my new role at The Centre and getting to know the people and the place.  Please feel free to stop by my office to say hello.
