Meet Stanley E. Rose

Meet Stanley E. Rose

Native Washingtonian Stanley Rose can remember visiting the Hebrew Home at its former location on Spring Road in Northwest Washington DC as a child. He then fondly remembers visiting his uncle Abe Rose, retired optician, who lived at the Wasserman Residence after it opened in 1969. Uncle Abe, with a twinkle in his eye, was especially popular with the female residents – always fixing and adjusting their eyeglasses.

Additionally, Stanley's own grandfather who emigrated here from Lithuania wanted very much to become a doctor. But because of a lack of education and resources, he instead became a barber where he could perform minor medical and dental procedures in addition to cutting customers' hair.

While Dr. Stanley Rose retired as an investigator in the human resources department of the U.S. Postal Service, he holds a Ph.D. in Hispano-Semitics from Catholic University as well as Bachelors and Masters of Arts from the University of Maryland. Dr. Rose says, "I believe in the cohesiveness of the Jewish community and feel that each of us has a responsibility to take care of those who are unable to provide for themselves. The Jewish community has followed this philosophy from their beginnings in New Amsterdam (New York) in the 1650s."

Stanley Rose is proud of the quality medical and eldercare services offered to both the Jewish and wider community by Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC). To that end, he has made CESLC a beneficiary of his estate plan and is in turn a member of the Builders of the Future Society.

If you have an interest in creating a planned gift for the benefit of CESLC residents now and into the future, please contact Elana Lippa, Director of Gift Planning, at 301.770.8342 or Lippa@ceslc.org.
