The approaching holiday will be the second Rosh HaShanna that we celebrate under the conditions of COVID-19. Since the outbreak of the virus over a year and a half ago, our institution has grown skilled at adapting to the pandemic’s ever changing realities – a testament to the strength and resilience of Reuth and our Staff.
This past year, our team at the hospital was charged with the difficult task of treating patients and keeping their spirits high amidst intermittent national lockdowns and department quarantines, during which the patients could neither leave the hospital nor receive visitors. In parallel, our teams at the senior homes and sheltered community housing had to develop innovative enrichment programs that would safeguard the mental health of our residents without exposing them to COVID-19.
Against the backdrop of the pandemic, the Reuth Rehabilitation Hospital turned 60. We planned to celebrate this important milestone by hosting a public photo exhibition, featuring portraits and stories of the people whose lives the hospital touched. Due to the rising levels of COVID-19 infections in Israel and the current regulations, we have postponed the event. It is our hope that we will soon have the opportunity to celebrate this anniversary with all of you!
Despite the uncertainty of the future, we are confident that with the help of our partners and supporters, Reuth will weather this crisis and continue to provide medical, paramedical, and housing solutions to our beneficiaries. At present, all of Reuth’s institutions are operating at full capacity and we look forward to embarking on new projects and initiatives, chief among which is the building of a new Hospital campus Tel Aviv.
Shana Tova U’Metuka!
