Honoring Our Centenarians… Leon Rosenberg

Posted on: May 16, 2023

Leon Rosenberg was born in Poland. He is a holocaust survivor. In 1939 he was taken prisoner. 10,000 Jews were taken and only eight survived. Leon then went back to Poland to find his family, all were deceased. In 1945 Leon married Phyllis. They lived in Poland for three years.

After contacting an uncle in New York, they were both able to come to America. In 1949 they came through Ellis Island. At the time, Phyllis was pregnant with their second daughter. With help from his uncle, Leon secured a job working in the Manhattan garment industry. He worked three jobs to support his family. After five years, Leon and Phyllis became American citizens. This is when Leon’s talent in tailoring became profitable. He became a tailor for many famous people including Mrs. Nixon and the President of Mexico. Leon tailored Mrs. Nixon’s inaugural coat (this one with the sable collar). Leon continues to provide tailoring services to our Townehouse residents.

Last month on April 6, 2023 Leon celebrated his 100th birthday!

Our Happy Clients
  • My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.

  • Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
