What does it mean to Age Like a New Yorker? At our sixth annual “Eight Over 80” benefit gala in 2019, we will pay tribute to eight New Yorkers who, in their ninth and tenth decades, continue to live lives of remarkable achievement, vitality and civic engagement. The event raises funds to support The New Jewish Home’s vital programs.
Over 450 business and philanthropic leaders, influencers, healthcare advocates for older adults, and cultural patrons are expected to attend the event. The 2019 Eight Over Eighty honorees will be announced this fall. Contact Martine Arnoux for further event information and registration.

The New Jewish Home is committed to empowering older adults to enhance purpose and well-being through a portfolio of health care services.
“Eight Over 80” celebrates life and aging in an entirely new way, just as The New Jewish Home is transforming healthcare for older adults as we know it. Serving New Yorkers of all faiths and ethnicities for 170 years, we are one of the nation’s largest and most diversified not-for-profit geriatric health and rehabilitation systems.
We are dedicated to providing high-quality care and nurturing meaningful life, and we do more than you know to bring excellence to the areas of short-term rehabilitation, long‐term care, senior housing, and home health programs — including operating the nation’s only substance abuse recovery program in a long-term care setting.
We’re forging new ground in applied research and technology and models of care, and we’re training the next generation of healthcare workers — helping hundreds of young New Yorkers graduate high school, go to college, obtain allied health care certifications, and begin meaningful careers.
And all of this needs your support to achieve. All of this is what distinguishes us from other healthcare organizations serving older adults. And all of this is what “Eight Over 80” helps to sustain.
