Century Village in Boca Raton is one of four Century Village locations built by Cenvill Development headed by Florida real estate developer H. Irwin Levy. These are large, gated communities for residents over 55 years old, and they were marketed as retirement communities attractive to Jew from the Northeast United States. Several synagogues were built in or near the communities. Beginning in the 1980s, many Holocaust survivors lived in Century Village. All the synagogues in the area appear to have prominent Holocaust memorial monuments.
