Our Mission and Vision

Memphis Jewish Home & Rehab (MJHR) is a nonprofit nursing home, Jewish in character and environment, dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible with compassion, dignity, and commitment.


With more than 95 years of experience serving seniors in the Memphis community, our professionally trained staff provides patient-centered care to people of all faiths.

Rich History, Bright Future

Founded as a nursing home in 1927 as the B’nai B’rith Home for the Aged, Memphis Jewish Home & Rehab was originally located at 131 North Tucker St. in Midtown Memphis. By the 1950’s, the Home was incorporated as a nonprofit and set out on a bold capital campaign to build a new modern facility in 1967.

In 1992, the organization moved to our current location in Cordova, Tennessee and was renamed the Memphis Jewish Home. Located in a 77-acre park-like campus, the facility has 165,000 square feet of space with 160 beds, all within a warm, welcoming setting. We added a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility in 2008, and selected our current moniker: Memphis Jewish Home & Rehab.

We have served the Memphis community for more than 95 years and are always listening and planning for ways to improve our services to the community.
