Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania CEO Mark D. Weiner
Dear Friends and Community:
I’m pleased to introduce myself as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania. I’m excited to be here and look forward to advancing our organizational Mission and service to the community.
I thank Rabbi Sandhaus for his strong leadership for nearly 40 years and the entire staff which has been committed to high quality and resident-centered care. I remain most impressed with the work efforts and results of our entire staff and the strong and passionate leadership of our Executive Committee and Board of Directors.
I've been spending my time meeting with internal staff, Board leadership, and a wide range of civic, religious, business, and philanthropic community leadership. I've spent time throughout Scranton as well as Wilkes-Barre and the Poconos to aid in my understanding of the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania, its affiliated organizations, the older adult marketplace, and the Northeastern Pennsylvania environment.

Count me in as a big fan and supporter of the Jewish Home of Eastern PA. I have been familiar with its work and service to the community since I was Mayor of Scranton.
Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation for the unwavering care provided for my mother during her residency at The Jewish Home.
After touring several nursing homes in the New York area where I live, I made the decision to place my mother in the Jewish Home in Scranton where I was raised.
