It all began in 1959 with the first recorded mention of building a senior community founded on the Jewish values of reverence for life and a belief in its dignity. For nearly three decades, succeeding groups of community leaders explored the possibilities, defined the philosophy and principles, and studied the practicalities of financing this vision. But, the time was not ripe until 1987, when a small group of enterprising trailblazers let by Marie Brown began making the dream a reality.
Together they formed what is today the Jewish Housing Council with the goal of establishing Sarasota’s only rental campus for senior life. Their dream faced many challenges along the way, but it was the natural leadership ability, willingness to move forward and the eternal cheerfulness of Marie Brown – who still lives at Aviva with us today – that kept the team together.
