For more than three decades, DOROT has been an innovative leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism.  DOROT alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. We serve the Jewish and wider community, bringing the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of elders, volunteers and professionals.

Our DOROT Partners in Care Outreach Social Worker is now Jane Blumenstein. She is able to discuss DOROT services and programs to support older individuals and caregivers at West End Synagogue.
