Reuven Ini Celebrates Bar Mitzvah at 70
Yad Sarah Makes Lifelong Dream Come to Fruition
Reuven Ini and his sister were born disabled. Their parents abandoned both children by a trash bin; but for a social worker passing by and finding them, both children may have lost their lives that cold night. The social worker tried to place the children in homes but without luck. Their lives were spent moving from institution to institution.
Reuven never did marry or have children. Twenty years ago he found the Yad Sarah Shikumon (Day Rehabilitation Centre) could provide him with the place to recover both physically and mentally. Here he found other clients who had disabilities. Reuven found friendships and his community within the walls of Yad Sarah.
