For 45 years, thousands of senior residents of Venice have been assisted by the Israel Levin Senior Center. Recently, the Center has fallen on hard times and needs the community’s help.
When the Center was founded, many thousands of elderly Jewish people resided on or near Ocean Front Walk. They included concentration camp survivors and retired garment workers. The Israel Levin Center, at 201 Ocean Front Walk, was the focus of their social lives. Founded by Israel Levin when he bought a former bingo parlor in 1964, and run by Morris Rosen for many years, the Center has been an important part of Venice and has participated in many community struggles over the years.
