Award ceremony 2013

Wed 19:00. The foyer of the Tel Aviv Museum starts to fill up. Excitement.

This year awards granted in three categories, so we had each cocktail dish divided into 3 (Maasia catering). Excitement. Quiet. Here we begin.

Opening act performed by Harmonya, a female trio from the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra who played a chapter from Divertimento by Mozart and the delightful theme from a Scent of a woman. In the background screen – women’s art creations from a collection of Tel Aviv Museum.

MOC Oshrat Kotler invites one by one the mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, and Mrs. Ruth Rappaport who made a link between curious Eve, the mankind source of human research and social influences. Mrs. Susan Landau, presents the award and museum curator Alan Ginton introduced the Rappaport Art Award winners. Senior Israeli painter David Reeb and a young Israeli artist – Iva Kafri.Prof. Amir Lerman from Mayo Clinic and Prof. Ora Israel from Rambam healthcare center, presented the work of Rappaport Prize winners in BioMedical research: Dr. Jacob Hanna, Weizmann Institute and Prof. Hagai Bergman, Hadassah Hospital. Both groundbreaking researchers in their own field, both amazing people whom coming breakthroughs will bring relief to millions of patients worldwide.

Coming to introduce the new award category of influential women awards we had a breathtaking piece of dance work from the KCDC company.

This is the first year Rappaport Prize included the category of change generating women in the Israeli society. The prize committee’s got hundreds nominations of women who are making the impossible on a daily basis and make it humane society receives all the “other” to its ranks.

Andre Maurois wrote that “art is an attempt to create human side of reality.”

Albert Einstein said that “Mystery is the most beautiful thing we can experience. This is the source of all true art and all sciences.”

And in “Anna Karenina” Tolstoy wrote that “woman is the matter such that some not dwell on it, still find innovations on innovation.”

Ostensibly we are dealing with three different spheres, generated in being the pillar existence of vibrant and healthy human society.

We at Osnat SIGNATURE EVENTS are thankful for the opportunity to take part in such an inspiring project.
