About the charity

Dor Ledor organization is a social NGO founded in 2008, which aims at bridging the gap that has emerged over time between Israel's younger and older generations. Today, there are approximately 900,000 elderly persons in Israel, a third of which are defined as "solitary".
We believe that connecting the generations will be best achieved by personal and direct contact between young Israelis and their senior counterparts, and that both parties, and society as a whole, could greatly benefit from this encounter.

Dor Ledor organization is a social NGO founded in 2008, which aims at bridging the gap that has emerged over time between Israel's younger and older generations. Today, there are approximately 900,000 elderly persons in Israel, a third of which are defined as "solitary".
We believe that connecting the generations will be best achieved by personal and direct contact between young Israelis and their senior counterparts, and that both parties, and society as a whole, could greatly benefit from this encounter.

At Dor Ledor, we try to alleviate some of the solitude experienced by our senior citizens, with 3 main programs:
1. "Dorot" - A weekly meeting between a young volunteer and an elderly solitary person, in his home. The aim of the program is the creation of long-term social bonds.

2. "Help is on the way" –assisting elderly individuals with their daily needs. The project focuses on assisting solitary elderly persons with using computers, accompanying them to medical examinations and other appointments and needs, and helping with miner home improvements.

3. "Holiday Simcha" – events in Jewish holidays, which strengthen the generational bonds and allow more volunteers to take a meaningful role in the organization's activities.
