REUTH, ONE of Israel’s more veteran social welfare organizations, is continuing its 75th anniversary celebrations which started last year with gala events in Tel Aviv and New York. Because Reuth is also active in Jerusalem, it is likewise holding a gala benefit affair in the form of a concert at Zappa on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. with Etti Ankri, Evyatar Banai and Erez Lev Ari. Tickets are NIS 150, and doors open at 7:45 p.m.

Founded in Tel Aviv before World War II by a group of women immigrants from Germany, headed by Paula Barth, the aim of Reuth was to assist new immigrants who had not found employment and had little or no financial resources. Starting with a soup kitchen, Reuth expanded to include a nursery school, housing for new immigrants, retirement homes in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for elderly immigrants, and a hospital for the disabled and chronically ill. Over the course of time, the latter was extended and modernized and today is a state-of-the art medical and rehabilitation center with numerous activities for its patients and their families.
