A new home for Lone Soldiers in Israel was opened in Ramat Gan with a special ceremony marking the conclusion of the $5 million project launched by Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, headed by Elias and Lila Kalimian and family of Great Neck, N.Y.
Thousands of young men and women from around the world serve in the IDF at any given time with no family or other support system.
The Lone Soldiers’ Home provides a place for the soldiers to stay during their time off. The Kalimian Lone Soldiers’ Home contains 42 apartments with four beds in each apartment.
The Friends of the IDF also sponsors Lone Soldiers’ Homes in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Three generations of the Kalimian family joined “From Holocaust to Independence,” the FIDF delegation to Poland and Israel, prior to the dedication.JTA
