To illustrate the community’s caring nature, Gail said that there is an active bikur cholim in the village, thanks to a very devoted villager who chooses to remain unnamed.

“He is an unbelievable person,” Gail remarked. “He checks in with people that are sick every day and makes sure they have food.”

After asking this benevolent individual why he devotes so much of his time to bikur cholim, he said, “I just want to help people. As a child, I was in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. I lost my parents and I could never do the mitzvah of kibud av v’eim. I do this chesed in my parents’ zechus.”

According to Shanni Safern, who has been in the village for three years, “When my husband was in the hospital, he [the aforementioned compassionate man] came to visit him every single day. When I needed food for Shabbos he prepared some of it himself.”

Shanni added, “One of the reasons I chose the village in West Palm Beach is the pretty landscape; you feel like you are in the country. When I was first considering buying here, I saw a colorful sailboat pass by and I knew this is where I want to be. I have since taken some sail-boating classes.”

Dolly and Paul Rothenberg, who have been in the village for more than 12 years, explain how much they enjoy the beauty of nature throughout the premises.

“Every morning when I walk around the village I enjoy the beautiful view, the birds and the trees – such as the mangos, papaya and bananas that grow here,” said Dolly. “In the evening, we love to sit by the lake right by our home and watch the awesome sunset.” She also said, “There are all types of people here, and everyone finds their own niche.”

“There is always something to do, and you can always find someone to join you,” added villager Sandy Kenigsberg.

Its eclectic combination of people, very affordable beautiful homes, and perfectly manicured landscape has made Century Village of West Palm Beach a very sought-after destination.
