RESEDA, Calif., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Jewish Home, the largest single-source provider of senior housing in Los Angeles, has selected longtime Home board member and past president of Jewish Big Brothers of Los Angeles David Swartz as its new board of directors' chair effective July 1. Newly elected to the board were Marshall A. Gluchow, Gary Goldfein and Robert Rodin.

He has over 35 years of experience providing business advisory services to clients in several industries, including manufacturing, wholesale, retail, entertainment, real estate and professional services.
"This is a time of exciting growth and change for the Home as we expand our services, programs and facilities to serve a much wider portion of the community beyond those who reside on our two wonderful campuses," Swartz said.
