The Bnei Mitzvah Experience!

Celebrate your Bnei Mitzvah Experience with ADI and create an ever-lasting impact on Israel’s most vulnerable citizens.

Our ADI professionals will work closely with you to create a Bnei Mitzvah Experience that reflects your child’s passions, interests and hobbies while aligning with your values, beliefs and ideals.

How it works

Enter this new stage of life by doing the ultimate act of kindness and chesed – help give kids who can’t walk, talk or even breathe on their own a chance to live a better, happier life.


Develop a deep connection with a resident or special education student at ADI, who is also celebrating their Bnei Mitzvah.


Bake your favorite cookies, cakes, or pies to raise funds that will ensure our residents and special education students continue to receive professional nutritional and dietary oversight.


Have your community sponsor you to run, walk, bike or bowl, and the funds raised will guarantee that the residents and special education students continue to live active and dynamic lives through our various specialized therapies, including sports and animal therapy and hydrotherapy.


Give gifts from our Ability Boutique to your family, friends, and community, with 100% of the funds raised benefiting the art therapy program for our residents and special education students.


Check out the Bnei Mitzvah Superstars section below to see project ideas of Bnei Mitzvah from around the world.

Upon completing ADI’s Bnei Mitzvah Experience, your name will be added to the ADI Bnei Mitzvah Tree, marking your milestone and celebrating your impact for ADI’s residents and special education students.

About ADI - FAQ's

ADI (pronounced ah-dee) is the Hebrew word for a radiant and multifaceted jewel. ADI is also an acronym for Ability. Diversity. Inclusion. 

ADI is a warm and loving home that cares for babies, children, teens and adults with many kinds of disabilities. A person with severe disabilities requires special care, special equipment and special treatments. Many families are not able to provide all of this support by themselves and decide that their child will enjoy a better life by living in a place that can give them all of the professional care they need. ADI is that special place, providing care, therapy, education, rehabilitation and, most of all, lots of love to people of all ages with severe intellectual and physical disabilities and other medical complications.

ADI has two branches: ADI Jerusalem and ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran.

In addition to the people who live at ADI, people from surrounding neighborhoods and towns come to ADI for different treatments and therapies. ADI happily helps everyone, each according to their needs.

As your Bar/Bat Mitzvah approaches, you can help ADI provide the best possible care to residents and students. You can twin with an ADI resident and support him/her by helping to fund therapy sessions, or you can pick a project and raise money for special equipment.

There are so many ways to show you care. Contact us and we will be more than happy to help you find a way to add special meaning to your special day by helping our special children.
