The Morris Feinmann Homes Trust provides financial support for elderly Jewish people, particularly holocaust survivors and refugees, who are unable to fund the cost of residential and nursing care.
The Morris Feinmann Homes Trust's principle objective was to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of old and needy persons of the Jewish faith, particularly for such of them who were refugees from racial or religious persecution.
From its founding in 1953 up until 2013, this was achieved by operating the much-loved Morris Feinmann Home.
On 19th June 2017, after a 4-year period during which there was no facility on the Didsbury site, the Belong Morris Feinmann Village will open its doors to new residents after a £12m redevelopment.
The new Village will be operated by the award-winning charity, Belong. The Trustees themselves ceased operating a care home when the old facility was closed in 2013. However, the Trustees' work will still continue.
In the future, the Trustees will continue their work by means of:
- Utilising existing financial resources and new charitable contributions to support those in need, so that no elderly member of the Jewish Community is denied entry into the Belong Morris Feinmann Village purely because of inability to meet fees.
- Working closely with our partners, Belong, to ensure the Jewish cultural and religious character of Belong Morris Feinmann is maintained at all times.
Following the topping-out ceremony (see here), the opening date for the new Village was announced.
