Branding symbol of the city of Tel Aviv - a city without a break In our streets
The stories of the women behind the names of the streets in the city
Symbol "In full exclusion 2022" - Women’s Week in Tel Aviv - Jaffa Prof. Gertrud Kraus
Vienna 1901 - Israel 1977
[Painting of Gertrud Kraus - Efrat Hasson de Botton]
Pioneer of modern dance in Israel and choreographer, winner of the Israel Prize for Dance
Upon graduating from modern dance, and to present her first recital she rented a large hall and invited friends and acquaintances to it, who warned her of a diligent failure. Her response was, "If it’s a failure, at least it’s going to be a spectacular failure!"
In 1930 she was invited to dance in Eretz Israel. The show was very successful and Kraus was invited to perform again in Israel. In 1933 she appeared before the Zionist Congress in Prague and the next day submitted an immigration application.
In 1935 she immigrated to Israel, opened a dance school and initiated the annual dance festivals in the kibbutzim. Among her students were singer Yaffa Yarkoni and theater actress Orna Porat.
Our streets have a special charm.
They reflect history and a culture of values and heritage.
As part of the week "in full exclusion" we will ascend to the miracle of inspiring women who have gained recognition and appreciation by naming a street after their name.
Today, not many streets in the city are named after women, and the municipality is working to rectify the situation
