Volunteers Testimony

I loved volunteering at Ezrat Avot. Very warm atmosphere and its amazing knowing I'm partaking in a program to help the elderly. This program has been helping the elderly for generations and its great to be a part in helping with it.

Our time at Ezrat Avot has been such a life changing experience. When we signed up to volunteer here, we didn’t really know what to expect, but after spending the past few month here we really feel the difference we’ve made. Knowing we made an impact on other people’s lives, has made an impact on our own lives. It has been such a privilege coming here every week and we thank you for the opportunity.

I volunteered at Ezrat Avot throughout my year in Yeshivat Hakotel (5774).

I witnessed firsthand the kindness and care that was provided to those in need, and have always remembered those moments as inspiration

to me personally.  


When deciding where to allocate our Maaser money from our wedding, my

wife Melyssa and I prioritized Ezrat Avot. Our donation is a small piece of our gratitude to the institution, and we know it will be utilized wisely.  


Thank you for your tireless efforts,


Melyssa and David Mandelbaum
