Shalom Court Boutique Home & Hospital in the Auckland suburb of Meadowbank is a not-for-profit 36-bed premium aged care facility based on Jewish values and practices.
Shalom Court is owned by a charitable trust and the facility is managed by an Incorporated Society. The Society members – Friends of Shalom Court Auckland – annually elect a volunteer Board, and the Judaism that is practised and observed within the facility is a reflection of their own Jewish education and levels of observance.
Shalom translates as “peace” or “welcome”, and in modern Hebrew is used to both greet and farewell.
Shalom Court welcomes residents and employs staff of all denominations.
