United Jewish Generations was established in 2004 by Rabbi Menachem & Devorah Leah Smith.

Rabbi Menachem Smith received a Bachelors of Arts in Religious Studies from the Rabbinic College of America in 1994. He received Rabbinic Ordination from Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim in 1997. In 2000 he was awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Advanced Rabbinics from Touro College and National Council of Young Israel.

Soon after Rabbi Smith married his soul mate Devorah Leah Lifshitz in 2000, they moved to Florida where Rabbi Smith was part of an Advanced Rabbinic Kollel program at the Shul of Bal Harbour.

In 2004 Rabbi Smith realized that there was a major need for an agency that deals with all areas applicable to the senior population. Together they started the United Jewish Generations, (also known as Chabad for Seniors.) Among their many projects, two of them specifically concentrate on uniting the generations, namely the "Adopt-A-Bubby Program" and "Links of Life." Other programs they offer are Shabbos and Holiday programs, Klezmer Concerts, Jewish Comedy shows, Torah Lectures and visitations. Rabbi Smith is also a volunteer chaplain at numerous hospitals and senior communities and has received two certificates in clinical pastoral education (CPE) which are accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education Inc (ACPE.)

Rabbi Smith has also published numerous editions of a large print Jewish magazine called the Golden Times, a yearly calendar given out free of charge to all seniors, and other publications such as a Jewish Prayer Guide for the unaffiliated.

United Jewish Generations invests an enormous amount of effort and resources to benefit the senior community please look through our website and see if any of our programs might interest you or your loved ones. The senior citizens were there for us and now it's up to us to be there for them!
