Tony Reichler was born in Venezuela and made Aliyah to Israsel by himself as part of the Naale”h Program in 2009, when he was only 16 years old. Once he completed his studies and served in the IDF in a significant position as combat soldier, Tony heard about Wings program and decided to join our family.

 

As part of our program, Tony received career and financial counseling to help him to integrate better in Israel, to fulfill himself and to maximize his potential.

According to Tony, this process allowed him to make a decision to begin studying international relations and he is currently a student at IDC )Interdisciplinary Center( in Herzliya.

 

Tony made Aliyah, out of his love for Israel and a desire to enlist in the IDF and contribute to the country –values on which he was raised at home. Tony’s mother, who has a military career and is an officer with the Venezuelan military, instilled in him a desire to contribute to society, and as we learned from Tony, three months ago she was promoted to a rank of colonel.

Wings family, in which Tony has been an integral member for a long time, were moved by the word Tony wrote to his mother on in a post Facebook:

 

 “Today is an important day for us, the family, and particularly for mom. Today she becomes colonel in the Venezuelan military. I remember as a boy that you were a young officer full of drive and ambition, and I didn’t understand why staying in the base on Saturdays and was missing at home, and I Know today it was to secure our future.

And now you have reached to the top

We wanted to be with you on this day but were unable to make it to Venezuela. Yet, we are proud of you a lot, love you and miss you.”
