“ I think it is important that young people, like myself, connect with the elderly and learn what they have gone through. It helps me better myself by understanding their lives.”

Past L’Dor V’Dor Interns

“ From my time at the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale, I changed as a
person in ways I did not expect. One said way was that I learned how to see people as
stories and experiences rather than just humans.”
