Spiritual Life

We honor fathers and mothers as Jewish tradition teaches us through services every Friday and Saturday, all Jewish festivals, and meals prepared consistent with the festivals. Our Residents represent “our communal parents” and we honor them with the naming of our beautiful congregational synagogue, K’hilat Horim – Community of Parents. All of our Residents, by virtue of living at Heritage Pointe, are members of K’hilat Horim.

Our Spiritual Life Committee is responsible for how we honor our community of parents in their golden years in “The Jewish Way.” The committee includes our Director of Spiritual Life, Rabbi Sherman, Resident representatives, board members, staff members, and volunteers, and is chaired by board member David Zarnow, Vice President of Spiritual Life. The committee strives to make Heritage Pointe a vibrant and joyous “Jewish Place,” and not just a place for Jewish seniors.


As a pluralistic Jewish community of Residents from many walks of life and with varied traditions, we are crafting and refining our Minhag Hamakom – our “Custom of the Place.” We welcome local community members to join our Residents for worship and celebration.

Heritage Pointe Residents flourish and thrive in their golden years worshipping in our beautiful K’hilat Horim Synagogue. They are remembered through an act of tzedakah, an act of generosity, by families and friends. This book of remembrance helps commemorate these loved ones in deed by helping others in spiritual need.
