Students at ADI’s special educations schools were among the numerous Israeli children who returned to school on September 1.

At ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, 130 children arrived to fill classes and kindergarten schoolrooms. Avi Wortzman, CEO of the rehabilitation village, was on hand to greet the students, their parents and staff. “We are thrilled to see our precious children back in school for a new year of activity. We wish all our students and teachers a year of health, progress and happiness. Seeing our children, who all have complex disabilities, happy, advancing and improving, imparts the greatest possible feelings of satisfaction.”

Eli Beer, president of Ichud Hatzalah, and Eli Pollack, organization CEO, joined Shlomit Grayevsky, CEO of ADI Jerusalem, and special education school and kindergarten principal Rachel Fishheim in welcoming students back to school at the ADI Jerusalem center.

Speaking in English and Hebrew, Eli Beer referred to students and staff as angels, blessing them and wishing them a successful year filled with good health and progress and extending a personal invitation to visit the Ichud Hatzalah offices, including a short spin on the organization’s legendary orange motorcycles.

From pre-school to age 21, special education students at ADI are accorded the best possible educational services, as ADI’s devoted multi-disciplinary staff employs state-of-the-art techniques and technologies to help them reach their greatest potentials.

As we enter the new school year, we wish all of our students another year filled with progress and advancement, success, good health and enjoyment.
