ATZUM'S Founding Executive Director, Rabbi Levi Lauer will be speaking with Adar Sananes

adar 4Adar Sananes, 25, was born and raised in Jerusalem. In 2003, she was grievously wounded in a terror attack on a Jerusalem bus while on her way to school. Adar suffered severe burns, internal injuries, wounds from shrapnel and broken facial bones. She lost hearing in one ear and suffered life-threatening complications of her wounds. In the critical period of her recovery,  she was cared for by parents of a school friend and her teachers. Hospitalized for three months, her recovery and rehabilitation lasted a year. Prior to the terror attack, Adar was a diligent student and gifted dancer. Her profound trauma affected her ability to concentrate and study, but with the help of her teachers, she graduated high school. However, Adar suffered severe neurological damage that necessitated she stop dancing after 10 years of intense training. Adar currently lives in Tel-Aviv where she is a third-year student at Minshar College majoring in cinema.
