When Dina B Farhi, coordinator of admissions at Ramaz Middle School School in New York, and her mother visited Tel Aviv's Beit Halochem, (home of the warrior) she didn't know her students would find it inspiring.

 

Farhi and her family have been supporting Beit Halochem in Tel Aviv, a project of the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization (ZDVO) for many years. The organization was established in the wake of the War of Independence (1949), to address the needs of wounded and disabled soldiers. Ever since then, thousands of IDF soldiers and many civilian victims of terrorism who enjoy the wide range of activities and services provided by the ZDVO.

Upon her return to the US, Farhi shared her impressions of the visit with her colleague Danièle Gorlin-Lassner, dean of admissions at Ramaz Middle School. Lassner who serves as the advisor for a group of 12 fifth-graders told her students about the facility and its purpose.

 

The fifth graders, who have joined forces in the past in support of charity projects, decided to roll up their sleeves and help the veterans. They chose a creative way to raise funds: a cookbook of their parents' recipes. The book was published and sold by the students and all proceeds were donated to the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization.
