Evgenia and Maxim from Ekaterinburg say themselves that they don't really understand where the desire to make Aliyah came from - "it's just there", Evgenia said. Although the couple have faced many circumstances and fear which have given them some uncertainty about their decision they are still going! It's difficult for them to part with people close to them. Evgenia's mother was categorically against their move - which gave them some doubts about their decision.
Evgenia and Maxim have one desire - to get settled in Israel and then they hope that Evgenia's relatives will follow their example and make Aliyah.
"A big thank you," said Evgenia. "You are giving people HOPE!"
