Haim Barr, Chairman of ZDVO Beit Halochem in Israel, was thrilled to receive a “message board” from a group of Sydney students. The group of 90 friends recently gathered at the home of Adam and Daniel Jankelowitz to hear ZDVO’s special guest, Captain Ofir Anidjar, share his miraculous story of survival after being injured in Operation Protective Edge in 2014. Adam, 13 and Daniel 11, took it upon themselves to organise the event and even raised enough money for the purchase of a special wheelchair accessible ping pong table. Going one step further, the kids were only too keen to write messages to the veterans to encourage them in their rehabilitation.
