Hillel Day School 8th grade

This May, our Hillel Day School 8th graders are visiting in Israel Special in Uniform. Special in Uniform is a Jewish National Fund-USA program that integrates young adults with disabilities into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and, in turn, into Israeli society.

In America, when you meet someone, you say, "where are you from.” In Israel, when you meet someone, you say “what unit did you serve in?” Service in the IDF is part of the Israeli culture which strives to be an all-inclusive society. Special in Uniform is proof of just that. This program allows those that only had dreams of serving in the IDF to actually do so.

This year we are fundraising to adopt a solider. At the core of Special in Uniform’s success is the warm, personal relationship that develops between the staff and the soldiers with special needs. Forge a special relationship of your own by “adopting” Special in Uniform’s soldiers and sponsoring their needs for one year that will help him or her grow and develop.
We hope you can join us in supporting Special in Uniform by making a contribution which will change the lives of the Special In Uniform soldiers, their families, the units in which they serve and Israel.

Please help us support Jewish National Fund by making a contribution to our team and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance Jewish National Fund's great cause! Together, we can make a difference!
