Malca

Malca Family (Rina Maymon)
Fortuna Ben Oliel and Yichyah Malca met and got married in Algiers. They both had children from previous marriages – Eli Malca was Yichyah’s son and Fifin and Yosef Sharvit were Fortuna’s children. Their first two children together, Rina and Yisrael, were born in Algiers. In 1948 the family ‘made Aliyah’- they immigrated to Israel by boat through Marseille. In Marseille the father was detained due to eye issues, so the mother and kids had to continue on to Israel without him. In Israel Eli, the oldest son, was drafted into the army, the teenagers- Fifin and Yosef -were sent to a Kibbutz, and the mother was placed at Ma'abarat Pardes-Hanna (a transit camp) with the younger children. She reunited the family quickly and they all moved to Musrara neighborhood, into a big house on Shivtey Yisrael street, which was shared with three other families. The father joined as well and over the years more kids were born- Hanna and Alizah the twins, Sarah, David and Uri. The family lived in Musrara until after the Six-Day War (1967).
