DOROT’s Homeless Prevention Program (HPP) offers transitional residence and support to older adults at risk of homelessness. HPP clients are hungry for the taste of home cooking and you can make a real difference by donating a main dish, side or dessert for a small group. Drop-offs are limited to specific dates and all volunteers must follow participation guidelines.

Make a Younger Friend Across the Chess Board!

Volunteers Age 65+ Wanted to Play Chess via Video Chat with DOROT Teens

DOROT’s Intergenerational After School Chess program fosters a setting where wisdom and curiosity meet face-to-face, building mutually beneficial relationships in the process. Once a week during the school year, students grades 6-12 and seniors teach and learn chess from one another. This free program enables all participants to play chess, share stories and create meaningful intergenerational connections. Currently, the program is operating by video chat and we are in need of several individuals ages 65+ to join right away (note that registration for students is currently full).

To learn more about this opportunity, please contact and mention Virtual Chess.

Brighten the Day for Seniors at the 80th Street Residence


Join us as a congregation as we send many cheerful wishes to seniors: messages of happiness will be much appreciated as these residents have been unable to see family and friends throughout this very difficult time. The 80th Street Residence is devoted to dementia care and caters to yesterday’s executives, politicians, artists, educators and world travelers. It is a small community of individuals who would love to receive a card with warm wishes from their neighbors. This is an ongoing Mitzvah through the end of April and open to all temple members.

Handmade cards would be a special addition to their day, but store-bought are appreciated as well. We are looking to send messages of cheer such as: Have a nice day…Thinking of you…Hope your day is Special…Choose to be happy today…Here’s wishing you a day filled with cheerful smiles and happy thoughts…Please do not use the words, “Get well soon.” Temple Emanu-El will supply a special gift with each card that is crafted!

Please address cards to:
