The Educational Alliance’s Sirovich Senior Center/ Project Ore
Everyday that I am in this city, I discover another reason why I love it, but on the day that I stopped into the Sirovich Center, I was truly proud to be a New Yorker. I could not help but tear up when the caring people I met explained what the mission of their organization is. For over twenty-five years the center has been offering a variety of classes, social events, and counseling in an effort to support Holocaust survivors, seniors, the homeless, and any others of the Jewish faith who are struggling in life. They are cared for and attention is given to each of their specific needs – no one is left to manage life on their own, if they are unable. Within the center is a soup kitchen, Project Ore, which provides family-style kosher meals. The commitment and compassion that everyone shares at the Center is heart-warming. I encourage anyone who is interested to visit their website, and consider helping out.
