Orange-flavour Cake

Adir Meir Avodi Z"L

Adir was a company commander at the Zikim base. He was a person full of giving and help to others. He always took care of those around him before taking care of himself, and was careful to donate food baskets to needy families.

Adir was an exemplary person and commander. Modest, with great giving. He was an example and inspiration to many.

Adir fell on Black Shabbat, 7.10.23, when he fought against terrorists who infiltrated the Zikim base and he protected over 90 recruits and soldiers with his body. He was 23 years old when he fell.

Adir loved his mother’s orange cake very much and would wait for it every Shabbat when he would return home from base.
