Project Ezra

Coming Up: Luncheon at WCT for Project Ezra, Sun, Dec 4

Project Ezra is a nonprofit organization that works with the frail Jewish elderly to live with dignity, companionship and community on NYC’s Lower East Side. Founded in 1972, we provide hundreds of elders with a variety of services and activities to reduce their social isolation and to enhance their lives. For much of that organization’s existence, Woodlands has maintained a caring relationship with it, hosting elders at luncheons at fall/winter and providing them with cartons of Passover food in the spring. 

When we could not continue our usual activities due to COVID, we found other ways of providing support – giving them goody bags at Hanukkah and funds for food purchase at Passover.

We look forward to resuming our luncheon this year. We will be looking for volunteers to co-host a table with another temple family – prepare a dairy meal and then serve it to our guests. Sign up HERE to be a co-host for the Dec 4 Luncheon. For more information, please email our program leaders, Harriet and Elise.

Leaders: Harriet Kohn and Elise Wagner Ballan, ProjectEzra@wct.org
