Belong Morris Feinmann, a new Jewish community care village in Didsbury, has celebrated a key milestone, with a topping out ceremony to mark the completion of the site’s roof and main building work.
Deborah Baker, General Manager of Belong Morris Feinmann, was joined by Ian Paul, Chair of Morris Feinmann Homes Trust and Rabbi Ellituv, Chaplain of Belong Morris Feinmann, who admired a tree-top view of the village from the highest apartment balcony, which was the final to be completed.
Belong is working in partnership with the Morris Feinmann Homes Trust to develop the new village which is due to open in July 2017. The village will comprise six households, each catering for 12 people in their own en-suite facilities. Each household will also feature a private lounge, dining room and kosher kitchen. The village also includes 13 new one and two-bedroomed independent living apartments for rent or purchase and a hub of facilities including a kosher bistro, synagogue, exercise studio, internet cafe and library.
Deborah Baker, General Manager of Belong Morris Feinmann, said: “It was wonderful to mark the completion of the main building work of the new Belong Morris Feinmann village. This village has been designed to offer 24-hour support, including specialist nursing and dementia care to older people in Manchester’s Jewish community and we look forward to seeing the building work progress, to completion, ahead of the opening of the village this summer.”
