Faces of The Fellowship: Sisters Noy and Maya

Noy and Maya Koshet, twin sisters from Portugal who made aliyah

Noy and Maya are twin sisters who recently made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) on a Freedom flight from a small Jewish community in Portugal. From a very young age, they dreamed of living in Israel because the girls were actually born to Israeli parents and the importance of Israel was instilled in their hearts. In fact, their two older sisters already live in Israel.

These sisters have so much potential and talent to offer the state of Israel, and we are so excited for what their future will hold. They plan to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as soon as possible. “I’m sure we’ll be able to do any job in a great way. Because of our sisters, we know quite a bit about the IDF and we’re really excited about being recruited. Our parents are supportive of us and are very proud of us for taking this step,” says Maya.

When young people desire to make aliyah, it is truly a blessing. Noy and Maya offer so much hope to the Holy Land, and we cannot wait to see them shine in their biblical homeland! Their passion for Israel and their willingness to serve the country they love is a huge inspiration.

“We’re super excited. And we also want to thank The Fellowship for helping us make aliyah,” add both sisters. “We love you and thank you for all the help!”
