Nineteen-year-old Gabriel just graduated from high school. He lived in South America until January of 2016, when he made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) on a Fellowship Freedom Flight. “I want to live in Israel where I'll be able to have experiences while I'm young, without the fear of going outside in the street like in my home country," Gabriel explained.

Faces of The Fellowship: Ulyana and Sasha

Ulyana, 5, lives with her mother, Sasha, in a tiny room of a communal apartment in a low-income housing project. The stairway leading up to the family’s fifth-floor apartment is filthy and reeks of urine. While the building is not looked after, and many of the residents are criminals, the families that live with Ulyana in her shared apartment are kind and decent.

Benny was training to become a pilot, and, most importantly, he was Jewish, just like Mina. They got married and moved to Russia. But then tragedy struck . . .

Maya recently celebrated her 92nd birthday. “Oh, I wish I could just decide to go on living, and it would happen,” says Maya. Not that Maya’s life is easy. After falling and breaking both of her legs, Maya is now confined to her small, two-room apartment. She struggles to walk around her home and must use a bulky walker. The only fresh air she gets is from her tiny balcony.
