The exhibition, jointly sponsored with the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and Haverut, features works by Hadassah patients and Bezalel students. Haverut, a non-profit organization, was established in memory of Ruth Ettun, who passed away from cystic fibrosis at age eleven.

The organization was founded by her mother, Rachel Ettun, in 2007, with the goal of enhancing medicine through a connection to spirituality, the creative world, and the community. Through this art program run by Haverut, Bezalel students and patients join together to create works of art, enabling the students to become a part of the patients’ healing process through art therapy.
