Zohara L from Sao Paulo
My name is Zohara and I am from São Paulo, Brazil.
Aliyah for me means a return to my roots as a Jew.
I made this decision after the birth of my granddaughter. My children live in Israel and I want to be closer to them, and watch my 3 grandchildren grow.
My difficulty is leaving my mother who is now 86 years old. I have also suffered from anti-Semitism here in Brazil.
I heard about Ezra through my neighbour. Ezra's financial support was essential for my trip to Israel. I am forever grateful.
