If anyone thinks it’s impossible to pick up and move to Israel after the age of 85, Sylvia Dombey says it is not only possible but rewarding. Indeed, she arrived in November 2012 at age 86.

Dombey has always supported Israel, but she was not a person who dreamed of aliya all her life. She was perfectly comfortable in the Jewish community in Hendon and had a very active social life.
