The ADI family mourns the passing of Former Prime Minister and Former President of Israel Shimon Peres z”l

The ADI family mourns the passing of our dear friend and mentor, Former Prime Minister and Former President of Israel Shimon Peres z”l. He shared our passion for the inclusion of all people and did everything in his power to assist us in reaching our most important milestones. Mr. Peres helped us establish our High-Dependency Ward in Jerusalem and promoted our rehabilitative village in the Negev whenever he could. He lauded ADI for its “tenacity of purpose.” As an organization, we saw him as one of our greatest role models.

“The meaning of life? To find a cause that’s larger than yourself and then to give your life to it.” – Shimon Peres, 1923-2016

May his memory forever be a blessing.
