The New Haven Jewish Home for the Aged is a nursing home in the Hill neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut.

The original Beaux Arts building at 169 Davenport Avenue was built in 1921. A new wing of the building was constructed in 1974. The building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1] Founded in 1914, it originally provided housing for elderly, destitute Jews, and was the second organization in the state to provide these services to its Jewish population.[2]
