An 83-year old Toba Moradi and her six relatives who were members of the only Jewish family in Afghanistan left the country the previous week and are now temporarily living in Albania.

Toba Moradi who was born and raised in the Afghan capital Kabul wants to go to Canada and start a new life with four of her children already settled there.

They were all rescued by IsraAid humanitarian organization that receives assistance from the Israeli President.

Toba Moradi’s siblings have been living in Israel and her parents have also been buried there but she was not in contact with her sibling since they left Afghanistan in the 1960s 1980s.

The Jewish Afghan woman said that she misses Afghanistan and added that she decided to leave her homeland in order to rescue her children’s lives.

“I left Afghanistan, I loved my country Afghanistan, loved it very much. I had to leave because my children were in danger. I am happy that I am going to see my children. My children are in different places, one in one place the other one in the other place; I was not able to see them. I was crying.” She told AP.

Toba Moradi is a distant cousin of Zabulon Somantov who left Afghanistan last month.

Somantov would named himself as the only Jewish in Afghanistan and the sole survivor of a centuries-old community.
