Mission Statement

The mission of aughters of Israel (DOI) is to provide a continuum of health related and social services to the elderly and disabled regardless of their ability to pay.


Daughters of Israel (DOI) was established on December 25, 1906 in Newark, New Jersey and is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary. Daughters engages in charitable and educational activities as determined by its Board of Governors and administration. DOI serves the United Jewish Communities of MetroWest (UJC), which includes Essex, Union, and Morris Counties as well as other surrounding counties in New Jersey. Current programs include a 298-bed long-term care facility which also provides short-term rehabilitation and an Alzheimer's unit. The Herr Adult Medical Day Center is a medically supervised non-sectarian day program serving 60 clients overall. Our HAREL apartments with assistance program is an independent housing facility of 24 studio apartments, providing general supervision, meals and programming. We also deliver kosher meals on wheels as part of our federation consortium running this program which is funded through Essex County Division on Aging. DOI has a transportation department specifically dedicated to providing transportation for the nursing home, adult day center clients and meals on wheels.

Metro Transport is a separate community transportation program, which began in September 2003 under the management of DOI. The mission of Metro Transport includes the provision of medical and quality of life transportation service for at-risk senior citizens who cannot afford to pay for rides on their own and who live in Union, Essex and Morris Counties. This is a collaborative effort between our agency, Jewish Family Service (JFS) and Jewish Community Center (JCC) within our community.
