Gvantsa and Salome are sisters making Aliyah together.  Gvantsa tells their story: “Israel is our dream country and our roots are there.  Not only our ancestors are from Israel, but our parents live there, and we want to be close to them. So, while we are young, we have to make our choices and face new challenges!”

“It’s hard to express what we feel about leaving.  It’s an inner feeling that you have deep in the heart.  We are leaving childhood friends, relatives and everything that’s been part of our growth.  We will miss it every day and think about Tbilisi all the time.”

“Ezra helped us from the very beginning.  When we didn’t know which documents to translate or get notarised – their representative advised us.  It’s important for everyone as there are a lot of papers and not all of them need to be changed or renewed.  After we took our first steps our city was locked down.  We were out of work as our flight time was near but then the virus changed everything.  Our flights were cancelled 4 times and we really don’t know how we lived through that time.  If it wasn’t for Ezra, we could not have covered the costs on documents.  Ezra team was beside us and helped us with finances.  They took care of us and encouraged us the whole time.  Because of lockdown offices were working in special order and if it wasn’t for Ezra’s advice, we would have wasted a lot of time in preparing documents.”

“You are doing one of the best jobs in the world!!  We want to thank everyone who supports Aliyah.  For us, personally, in that hard time while not working, Ezra’s support played the biggest role in the document renewal process.  We really had no finances to cover our expenses at that time and were very glad of your help.”
