Last year, thanks to generosity of donors, Adopt a Family was able to host six teenagers from Sderot, Israel. The teenagers spent a week exploring San Diego, kayaking, surfing, hiking and visiting attractions like California Adventure and the USS Midway as well as participating in a soccer tournament at San Diego Jewish Academy.
