Last week, the Reuth Tel Aviv Rehabilitation Hospital celebrated its 60th anniversary with a unique photo exhibition in the Habima Square in Tel Aviv. The outdoor exhibit included portraits of staff, patients, and their family members, each of whom shared a meaningful moment from their work or treatment at Reuth.

Among the patients and their family members who were featured in the exhibition are Ben Zilka and his partner, journalist Linoy Bar-Geffen, lawyer Dan Lahat, and actor Rudi Saada (Franco from Kupa Rashit).
The portraits were photographed by Yael Ilan – a photographer of the Khan Theater and the Mishkenot Sha’ananim Music Center in Jerusalem. Throughout her 20 years in documentary photography, Yael presented her work in numerous Israeli and international exhibitions.
A festive event marking the inauguration of the exhibition was held at the Heichal Hatarbut under the slogan of “Making the Impossible Possible.” Among the event’s speakers were the Mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, and the friends and management of Reuth.
The event featured an award ceremony for the Israeli Paralympic swim team, for whom Reuth provides medical sponsorship. The ceremony was followed by a conversation with lawyer Dan Lahat and performance by musician Oren Barzilai – both of whom underwent rehabilitation at Reuth and shared their personal stories of growth from crisis.
