The Reutlinger Community was founded over 60 years ago as the Home for Jewish Parents, in Oakland, CA. The demand for expanded services in the East Bay resulted in one of the largest and most successful capital campaigns in the history of the region’s Jewish community. With large donations from the Koret Foundation, the Jeanette and Harry Weinberg Foundation, Mr. Jacques Reutlinger and many others, the new Reutlinger Community opened its doors in 1999.
From 2011 to 2016, The Reutlinger Community again began undergoing a total transformation and renovation thanks to the generosity of the Schiff and Polse families. A multi-million dollar project, known as Renew Reutlinger, was started to create a living space for residents that met 21st century expectations of design, form and function.
The Renew Reutlinger initiative has placed the community into a new era of care, comfort and connection for its residents and families offering extensive hospitality and health care services.
The completion was celebrated on September 18, 2016 when the community officially re-opened its doors to the future of senior living.
