IDF Volunteers Empower Residents with ‘Soldier for a Day’ Program

Without question, the ‘Soldier for a Day’ program is among the favorites at ADI’s residential facility in Jerusalem. Our amazing ADI residents look up to our men and women in green, and they wait all year for an opportunity to emulate them. On the last day of Chanukah, as per the annual trADItion, volunteers from the IDF dropped by to empower the residents by helping them channel their inner soldiers. The ADI residents smiled from ear to ear – they were so proud to be wearing the uniform worn by so many Israeli heroes. The IDF loves ADI, and ADI loves the IDF!
