Turning a House Into a Home


This week we opened Beit Rotem, our third dormitory at Beit Ruth Village. We are welcoming 6 new residents to their new home as our Hostel program is closed and relocated to Beit Ruth Educational & Therapeutic Village.

This week we opened Beit Rotem, our third dormitory at Beit Ruth Village. We are welcoming 6 new residents to their new home as our Hostel program is closed and relocated to Beit Ruth Educational & Therapeutic Village.


Even before new residents step foot through the door, Beit Ruth staff have been working tirelessly to turn a once empty house into “Beit Rotem”, a warm and welcoming home ready to come to life with 15 new residents as our flagship Hostel program is closed and integrated with Beit Ruth Village.


Led by an expert in the therapeutic process of moving and transitions (specializing in moving elderly people from their homes into geriatric care facilities) the Beit Ruth staff strived to maintain the familiar and comforting atmosphere of the Hostel through the furnishings and artwork chosen for the new house. Beit Rotem’s house manager, social worker, and counseling staff have also been spending time with the girls who will move from the Hostel, developing the trust and the bond that is essential for creating the supportive warm-home atmosphere that Beit Ruth has become known for since 2006.


The memory of the Hostel is very much alive in Beit Rotem – named after a beautiful flowering plant native to the Rishon LeTzion area where the Hostel was first established. We know that our girls and our new staff will honor the proud tradition of the Hostel as part of this new and exciting chapter at Beit Ruth Village.


A special thank you to Harmony Interior Design, Dando Textiles Tel Aviv, Renby, Har-El Printers & Publishers, Givon Art Gallery, and Betili Israel for the donations of some of the textiles and artworks that make Beit Rotem truly feel like home.


Welcome home new residents!
