It was Israeli superstar David Broza, and leger de main mentalist Kenny who helped make the December 16 American Friends of Reuth’s — “Reuth at 75” — celebration an evening to remember.
During the pre-dinner mingling, the 170 festively dressed guests at The New York Palace were amazed and distracted by illusionist Kenny, whose disarming tricks included levitation of a paper dollar, resetting guests’ wrist watches and [gasp! gasp!] identifying obscure details of attendees’ lives.
Ido Aharoni, Israel’s consul general in New York, lauded the Reuth Medical Center noting how he was “inspired by the stories of patients and staff” and touting its “energy—considering the severity of many of Reuth’s patients, ailments and disabilities.”
Aharoni also designated event honoree Broza as “an excellent ambassador for Israel as well as an activist for many worthy causes.”
