Ongoing Social Action Opportunities

DOROT Westchester
Through personal contact with seniors, our volunteers help deliver vital services to the elderly and forge loving bonds between the generations. In the process, they reap a rich harvest of friendship, wisdom, and mutual appreciation. DOROT alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently as valued members of the community.They bring the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of elders, volunteers and professionals. To sign up or for more information, contact Emily Cohen.

Teach English as a Second Language
With all the opportunities to learn at Emanu-El, we also take time to teach. Volunteers from our congregation teach English as a Second Language to the immigrant community in Port Chester at the Don Bosco Center.  This wonderful opportunity to share our love of learning with others takes place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30-11:00am.  For more information, contact Abbie Levitt.
