Review for DOROT, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Until she passed away, Betty was an integral part of my life. Sharing bi-weekly visits with a friend, we would bring a Shabbat meal on a Thursday and visit for a while. During these visits her life would enfold, the joy that came from friends, the gratitude to Dorot for its wonderful programming, the pain and frustration that comes with ill health and not always understanding how the system works. But through it all was the simple jooy that comes from knowing that someone cared to hear the answer to "How are you?" On occasion, we wouuld bring our children to visit Betty, too. They would talk and laugh -- sometimes play a word game. A win-win situation all around. Dorot knows how to make a shidduch, and for that I will alwys be grateful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

raise so many clients from near the poverty levels where they find themselves and give them the opportunity to enjoy activites they do not have the wherewithal to enjoy now.
