Lauren M.

Aliyah – Immigration

I made Aliyah several years ago but had to leave Israel suddenly due to unforeseen circumstances.

I contacted VOLEH to check on the status of several things. Tzvi was prompt, professional, courteous, and kind. Within a week I found out
everything I needed to know.

Baruch HaShem VOLEH was able to help me. I feel so lucky to have found this wonderful organization.

Many thanks.

I am very grateful for the fast and professional help that our family received from VOLE and my most sincere thanks go to Mr. Szajnbrum. In our first steps as new olim chadashim, his help was priceless and very generous! He responded to our request immediately and straight to the point! Thank you!

B”H This organization is a great resource for Olim and if you don’t have the Hebrew, you have protexia through Voleh :-).

We purchased an apartment and the renter decided to give us a hard time about paying the rent. Tzvi helped us to understand what our rights are and gave solicited advice on how to proceed. He also was patient with my questions about the actual wording of the contract.

I don’t know how they do this for free but if points in Shamayim are counted, they are helping some of the most vulnerable people that are trying to have a successful  Aliyah.

Thank you Voleh for providing a much needed service and unfortunately, I will probably have to be in touch again.

Tzvi Szajnbrum is not just a lawyer – he cares!

He gave solid professional advice but also empathized with my situation.

It’s a blessing to know we as Olim, have Tzvi.

Thank you!!!

Voleh was amazingly helpful to me. Their first contact was almost immediate and straight to the point. Clear and concise explanation was provided, with attention to translating the law and it’s details so I could properly understand it.

I am very happy with the assistance and will seek their services in the future if necessary. Fully recommended.

We had some disagreements with our landlord and Voleh helped us to know what we are actually entitled to and empowered us to receive just that. They also spoke with our landlord themselves. Mr. Szajnbrum took the time to explain the situation thoroughly, clearly and professionally. I encourage anyone who needs legal assistance, an
advocate or advice to contact Voleh. Such a kind & necessary service to provide!

I am always grateful for Tsvi’s advice. His willingness to help Olim is wonderful.


Moshe David

I was sued by a past landlord from 3 years ago. Tzvi did a great job in helping me understand everything and preparing the paperwork. He was very professional in court and presented the truth. I would highly recommend contacting him BEFORE signing any rental contract and ask questions to prevent any future problems.

Civil, Contracts, Litigation

I had a problem with a recent subscription to a professional listing in the online marketing directory of my phone company. I had consented during an unsolicited high pressured marketing phone call from them. Soon after the call I reconsidered and vainly tried to get them to cancel it. Their representatives chattered on about a binding one year contract that was uncalleable. When I started to receive astronomical phone bills I realized that I had not been given full disclosure of all the regular monthly billing charges involved with this service, necessary for an informed consent from me.
Repeated calls to my server requesting cancellation were met with obstinate refusal. I did not know where to turn to until an AACI counsellor recommended Voleh. I contacted Tzvi and within a few weeks I received a call from the server agreeing to cancel the service as a result of the intervention of a lawyer – a reference to Tzvi.
I feel that Voleh is a valuable service available to new immigrants who are vulnerable to questionable business practices in Israel.

We are so grateful for the wisdom and “no nonsense” attitude we received at Voleh. We needed a quick resolution, we needed sound advice and we needed to feel we were in capable hands…and we got all of that! What you do is truly a gift to new olim and you should be blessed to continue to help others!

Tsvi is an example of what more lawyers should be: accessible; communicative; informative. As Olim we are all faced with situations which are unfamiliar to us and which can be life-altering, in other words, a crisis. It is great to know that Voleh is there for us, we can get knowledgeable advice just by writing an email! Thank you for
your guidance and counsel!

Hi,

We were threatened to be sued by our landlord and had no idea what to do. I came across Voleh’s site via Google, and I’m so glad I did. Tzvi called me within the hour after I emailed him with my question of how I should proceed. He gave me excellent advice that calmed me down and gave me a plan. Thank you Tzvi, and all the other volunteers for all your great work helping olim!

Thank you Tzvi

Tzvi is like your smarter older brother. He tells you like it is, is not shy about letting you know how you screwed up…but in the end, he is on your side 150%…like an older brother.

I was amazed by the quick and insightful attention that Tsvi gave me regarding my rental situation and also the way he explained issues related to Power of Attorney with me over the phone. I called from Los Angeles. I thought I was just contacting a normal law office and hoped maybe somebody would answer a question. Immediately I realized I had reached a uniquely gifted and helpful attorney. Tsvi explained a number of concepts very quickly and effectively and he also reviewed a legal document for me to my great surprise the same night that I sent it. I was not expecting anything like this, and I can only imagine how much critical help me must offer to others every day and every week.
He gave me the sense he knows very much what he is talking about and showed warmth, humor, and conscientiousness in my brief interaction with him. Amon Toda!!!


Samantha Basso

My husband and I have consulted Tzvi numerous times and have always been very diligent, effective and with excellent results. Now we keep as our advocate header.
Definitely highly recommend it as professional. Thank you so much for all you do for the olim!

When circumstances left us without money, Tsvi was someone who immediately helped when we received threats of physical violence from our landlord for owing them rent.

I’m very grateful to him for all his effort, time and help.

Tzvi, thank you so much for being there for me when I was desperate for your support. Not only for your excellent knowledge of law, but also for your stress management, words cannot describe my gratitude to you.


Tamar Abaye

Real Estate – Purchase or Rental

What a mensch! Tzvi responded to my email, asked for my rental contract, phoned me after checking it and told me exactly where I stood legally – and all within a few hours. I have just spent a year going through the courts for another issue and had completely lost all faith in lawyers, Tzvi has restored it – if there are lawyers like him
out there and now I know where to find him, I’m reassured that any future legal issues will be competently taken care of.

Thank you very much Tzvi, I can move my family now without fear of being sued for breach of contract. You should only meet people like you if you ever need help in your own life. 🙂


Alex Galvão

When I needed Voleh advice it was incredible how fast the answer came. And not only this. They were able to resolve my doubts in simple words. The feedback was clear and when I replied they succeeded in giving all the details for practical implementing the answer. Thank you so much!

Mr. Tzvi Szajnbrum did a great job for both me and my wife. He was in constant contact with me, and was able to check if there were any cases opened against us. He saved us a great deal of money, and gave us piece of mind. Thanks Again Tzvi! Kol HaKavod!

Ma’ayan S.

Working with Tzvi was an amazing experience! As a relatively new olah and not understanding how the system works here, I was overwhelmed with the serious mess that I now faced. I had heard horror stories about getting caught up in the bureaucracy here and I didn’t know what to do. From the first moment we spoke, Tzvi knew exactly what needed to be done. With calmness and expertise, he effectively and successfully navigated the situation. Tzvi’s help and confidence in resolving my situation, was a tremendous relief from the stress and
concern of the unknown financial and legal consequences that could have been. Thank you Tzvi!!!

I am very grateful to Tzvi for explaining what I needed to know about the legal system. I was considering requesting to re-open a case I’d filed, and he patiently and thoroughly explained to me what would happen if I made the request, and if it was accepted, as well as the pros and cons of doing so. I was able to make my decision with a thorough understanding of the entire process and all its ramifications. Thank you so, so much for your patience and the clarity you provided.

I want to thank Tzvi for his patience and help with my issues with Pelephone. The lawyers from Pelephone asked me to pay my debts in only one payment. It was impossible to pay it in this way. So I contacted Tzvi to help me with this situation. After a long and stressful arguing with them, Tzvi finally got a very good agreement. I really appreciated what you did. This is a very important help to all Olim, most of the time, when we see ourselves in this kind of situations we really don’t know what to do. Once again thank you very much for all.

Tzvi is not only a lawyer, but also a psychologist, a friendly ear, a support system or whatever you need him to be to cope with the situation on hand. Thanks for your help with my employment termination and for helping me understanding my rights and explaining my options. As an olah hadasha, it’s sometimes hard to deal with the legal system and easy for employers to take advantage of the situation. I am glad that they are people like Tvzi in this world.


Annette

Israel Legal System

Thank you very much to Tzvi who worked on my behalf to uncover some small debt I had in Israel after making Alliyah then returning back home. I found the news of a debt highly distressing, particularly when I had no one to turn to. Once I was given Tzvi’s contact details, he took on my case, maintained regular contact and helped me get it all sorted out, which has been a huge relief. I really appreciate his time and effort, as I had no where else to turn.


Linor

Civil, Contracts, Litigation

I contacted Tzvi about a civil suit I am filing against a former flatmate who did not fulfill the terms of his contract. While I am still working on a final solution (filing suit in a court) Tzvi has provided me with essential aid and advice to this point, and I would be completely lost on my next steps without him.

You know how sometimes they say you get what you pay for? This could not be less true here. You pay nothing, and you get the best.

Negotiating with Israeli landlords can be a trying experience for new olim, especially when you’re not clear what your rights are. Tzvi answered my question about my rental contract quickly and clearly, and I was able to stand up for myself! Thank you!

After receiving great help from Tzvi and reading the testimonials, I can indeed confirm that everything which is written there about Tzvi is correct. He is very smart and professional, and he gives all his heart and efforts when helping people. Its a rare combination that such a gifted person is also so giving to others and this combination is realized in Tzvi. Thanks a lot Tzvi!

When you confront a new & strange legal system in a language which isn’t your mother tongue, you feel like you are adrift in a boat without a rudder. You have no idea how to handle even the simplest problem & woe betide you if its complicated ………. Then you ask Tzvi. Like an absolute angel, he responds immediately. He cuts through all the confusion & angst. He goes straight to the point & gives practical & realistic advice. He goes further, even & solves your problem. If it’s not his expertise, he refers you to an expert & even guides you as to how much to pay. Tzvi, your selfless devotion to others serves as a sterling example to us all. May HaShem bless you & keep you & yours & make His face shine upon you as you make yours shine upon us.

Being an Oleh Chaddash and first time renting an apartment in Israel, I was not fully aware of all the contract issues that might arise. Tzvi was very quick in telling me exactly what had to be changed in the contract and truly looks out for his clients. I highly recommend Tzvi for any legal assistance one might require as you can trust that he will be there for your best interest.

I cannot thank you enough for referring me to Dana David. She’s very efficient & puts my mind at rest.

Your kindness, devotion & selfless dedication are things of which legends are made. It was worth coming on Aliyah, just to connect with you.

May we all strive to emulate your Chessed. It is without doubt, people such as yourself who are instrumental in HaShem’s constant guarding over His Nation in His Holy Land.

With deepest appreciation,

My son accumulated debts for a phone contract that he thought he closed upon leaving Israel for a year after IDF service and for national health insurance that kept billing him in spite of the fact that he was in the US.To make a long story short ,he returned to Israel to study and upon his visit home between semesters, he was stopped at the airport ,detained and needed to pay the large sum before allowed to leave the country. He was treated as a criminal when in fact he never received any notice of payment due until after his visit home.In order to insure that such treatment won’t happen again Zvi directed my son to the right offices to have cases against my son closed.We are so appreciative to Tzvi ‘s help and so relieved to know that there is someone out there who looks out for Olim and understands that navigating through Israeli non consumer friendly (to be polite) ways is discouraging to say the least.Thank you Tzvi ! I think that your service is desperately needed and so grateful by many as ourselves.


David

I think I found Tzvi through NBN. I was going crazy trying to cancel a service and found Tzvi. He immediately contacted me and knew straightaway what I needed to get to him. It’s an indescribable chesed, my Hebrew is not stellar and I didn’t know what to do. I wish him much success in his ventures!

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful service Tzvi!

Tzvi is amazing! I contacted him out of the blue for help with a contract to rent a home. He replied immediately and reviewed the contract, made comments, and sent it back within 12 hours. When I had further questions, he patiently continued to answer them and offer his expertise. I am so grateful for his quick, skilled and responsive aid. The fact that he offers free legal services is commendable; the fact that the service he offers is of the highest quality–priceless. Thank you, Tzvi.

I want to say THANK YOU Tzvi! You welcomed me with respect and dignity. Thank you for your valuable time and patience given when I came to you with my problems. It is obvious that you run a very busy workday schedule and yet you made a great effort to accommodate me knowing how important the matter is. Your genuine interest to help gives me the motivation to carry on believing that ‘worse things happen in life’, and it will sort out! I appreciate this and want to say thank you.

Tzvi took the time to speak with me two days in a row, when I had follow up questions about an unpleasant situation involving undisclosed conditions in an apartment I just rented. He advised me of my options, both legal and practical, patiently and with humor, and reassured me during a very stressful time. He even was kind enough to not let me beat myself over getting into the situation I was in. I highly recommend Tzvi and Voleh and am very grateful for their services!

Thank you very much . Assistance was fast, clear and professional. Next time I won’t doubt whom to contact in case of need.

I contacted Tzvi from Spain due to a problem I had with Bituach Leumi.

Tzvi and his office staff were very friendly, they provided with a fast and effective service. Tzvi information was very helpful. I cannot thank him enough! Great customer service, the kind of lawyer you want to have on your side!


Shmuel Mullins

Tzvi’s service was outstanding. His knowledge and experience was so beneficial. Tzvi literally took care of everything. As a new immigrant who did not know the system this was really amazing. He navigated us through everything and did all the paperwork for us.

As Tzvi himself was an Oleh and understands the difficulties we face and me and my wife were taken back by his help. We really appreciate his time and it’s a blessing that someone like him is around to help Olim.

I contacted Tzvi about buying an apartment. He explained the disadvantages of my situation, but also gave me alternatives and suggestions to help me make my dream of owning a home in Israel a reality. He was also willing to forward me information and contacts who are able to get me on the right track. I’m very grateful for his help.


 

Rachel Berger, Nefesh B’Nefesh

Thank you for making yesterday’s program a success. Each of you have given so much to the olim – I received positive feedback and think the olim / internationals learned so much from your experiences and your tips. This was an excellent training program for them. Thank you for giving them something so precious, your expertise and your time.


Devorah Mason

I would just like to thank Tzvi for handling my case so quickly from start to finish. He was efficient, knowledgeable and professional and I am glad to know that his organization is out there helping people protect their rights here in Israel.

I highly recommend contacting Voleh if you are in a similar predicament.


Nechama and Chaim Mazo

We really appreciate Tzvi Szajnbrum taking the time to meet with us and share his expertise in such a direct and “user friendly” manner. He gave us a very clear understanding of our situation as well as a no nonsense evaluation of the steps we need to take to overcome it. Even though he was so, so busy, he gave us 100% of his attention and focus to make sure we were clear on what steps we needed to take. As Tzvi put it, even after one meeting, we have already embarked on our one way journey from “la la land” to financial solvency. Thanks so much


Chaya Segev

Amazing! Great organizations that is a help to all of us in need of navigating the Israeli system. So ‎happy I found someone who could help us with no ulterior motive except our best interest in mind. ‎Also made us realize we always need to be aware of the system and play by the rules! Thanks Tzvi for ‎everything!!‎

Tzvi,
What can I say? I told you today that I wished you were an uncle, I’d be very lucky to have you in our family.
I am an oleh chadash who has had many problems setting up and doing business in this country, from the language to certain unscrupulous people, Tzvi puts you at ease, explains the stuff you need to know, even if you did wrong, and helps you out honestly, without prejudice and advises how to avoid the same mess next time. A real life saver on many occasions!
Tzvi you are brilliant lawyer / mentor / adviser… a credit to Israel – thank you.


Eliana

Tzvi is amazing. He is incredibly professional and will quickly respond to all questions. I can’t thank Tzvi and Voleh enough for being able to answer difficult questions in a professional manner without making new olim feel ignorant. It is nice having such a wonderful organisation on our side.


 

Plonit Almonit
Tzvi knows who I am. I must say, I was caught off-guard at how great his customer service was, seeing as how this is an organization providing a free service. I sent an email asking him to call and he replied in less than 10 minutes asking me to submit a form. Then I said I didn’t want any details of my situation in writing and he said I could tell him by phone. He called me shortly thereafter and answered my question clearly and quickly. That was that. You would think he’s being paid top dollar for such great service but this is a completely free service! Toda rabbah!


Suzy Kahati
I would like to thank Tzvi for keeping to his word. I attended a lecture that he gave free of charge of what to look for in a rental contract, which was very informative. He then added that any rental contract we have, he will look over it, again free of charge, but it might take a couple of days. This morning I sent my rental contract and within a couple of hours I received it back with his comments. Thank you again, Tzvi you are an angel.


Shawna N.
Tzvi Szajnbrum is a legal expert who is practical and pragmatic in approach but exceeds all expectations in achieving an outcome that benefits everyone. He was able to arrange an agreement for me that went above and beyond the ordinary. I was in a tremendously difficult financial situation not unlike many other israeli’s, however, I trusted his advice and direction and now have a plan and agreement that I can follow through with confidence. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Tzvi and I will always appreciate his hard work and guidance on my behalf.


Sheila
As I have read on other postings, I too am dealing with an unscrupulous landlord who is failing to fulfill her end of the rental agreement. The picayune that I have had to experience has put such a damper on the first five weeks of my Aliyah.
Just have VOLEH to contact made a difference. Once the landlord was contacted by VOLEH, she responded and FINALLY took action and fixed the many problems.

I am relieved that I did not have to start my life in Israel with a law suit, but I was willing to do so not only to protect myself, but to do what I can to ensure that other olim are not taken advantage of. Just goes to show you -wherever you go, there are unscrupulous people. It was a relief to know that VOLEH was here and supportive should I have had to proceed.
Toda Raba


Lia
I’m an ola chadasha and I had a really bad experience with my old israeli roommate who tried to take advantage of me and the contract we signed, she didn’t paid the entire year of rent and at the end of the contract I was responsible for her debt, I was in crisis and Tzvi helped me right away, he made me feel protected for the first time since I’m in Israel, I wish there were more people like him who cares for real. He’s a great lawyer and an amazing person, I have not enough words to thank for what he did for me.
Thank you Tzvi!


Moshe Kalonymus Fink
Aliyah isn’t easy for anybody. However, thanks to Tzvi Szajnbrum and Voleh it is much easier. When I contacted Mr. Szainbrum I was not expecting the immediate, sympathetic and enthusiastic response that I received. Truly amazing what this man does for complete strangers. Previous experience (in USA) had removed all hope for the legal profession from my mind. Now I see that the solution is simple, have Tzvi Szajnbrum teach the course on legal professional ethics at all US law schools. I can’t thank Tzvi enough, and hatzlocha rabbah in all that you do.

Enjoy Reading – Just a quick note to let you know that I enjoy your dry sense of humour, your cutting rhetoric, and your astute observations in the postings you put on the Ra’anana List. It is always good to have the opinion of a sharp mind, especially if it doesn’t agree with the seeming majority. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to both inform and amuse me with your knowledge. If I ever need a lawyer (tftt, tftt, I hope I never do), I would not hesitate to contact you as I appreciate your manner. I would not wish to be an adversary. In Australia, we called that kind of attitude a ‘pot stirrer’, and I do like it!


Paul Kaufman
I can only endorse what has already been written hundreds of times on this site already. My story is not an uncommon one. I was ripped off by a mobile phone company (whose name is that of a certain citrus fruit), when they sold me an internet stick for an exorbitant monthly fee (in addition to mobile phone contract).

After returning from a fundraising trip from Europe (for an Israel based child poverty charity), I was presented with an outrageous bill for using the stick overseas, which I had been assured was within the contract.

After enquiring re. legal services through the usual channels open to oleh (and after receiving little assistance) I was eventually Baruch Hashem, recommended to Zvi and Voleh through the friend of a friend. I can only emphatically endorse the glowing tributes to Tzvi and his organization on this site. He is both a Tzaddik and a Shining exemplar of REAL Jewish Values so sadly often missing in Israel and other societies and am certain that Tzvi will reap what he has sown and receive Numerous Blessings, spiritual and material, from the Creator, in whose image this benevolent exponent of Chesed, has certainly been fashioned.
With warmest regards and Thanks

I would like to nominate VOLEH for the outstanding volunteers award. I am a recent olah chadasha and I wanted to settle a dispute with my
baal habait in small claims court in Jerusalem. They only accept claims in Hebrew and my Hebrew is not proficient at all. I received an appointment as soon as I could come to their offices. I met with VOLEH and they spent about 2 hours helping me file the case. They filled out all the paperwork for me in Hebrew and gave me directions so that all I had to do was drop it off at the small claims court office. It was an amazing service and they didn’t charge me one shekel. I have already recommended their services to other olim and strongly support their nomination as an outstanding volunteer.


Deena
Wow. I bless you!!! I had a question about a rental, a Facebook friend recommended I contact you and you got back to me right away! In my case it was a simple answer (No, there is nothing I can do about it) but it’s an answer and knowledge is freedom.
Thank you SO much.


Eliyahu
Expert help with IDF issue – Our deepest thanks to Tsvi for volunteering to help with our son’s complicated problems with the IDF. As olim facing a bewildering and well entrenched system that seemed determined to railroad our son into a dead-end job in the army because of misunderstandings over his education and medical profiles. Tzvi was able to get to the decision makers quickly and get his situation looked at again. While our requests through “channels” and the public complaints office went no where fast, Tsvi’s efforts were able to get action. There are not enough words to thank him or Voleh for taking up our cause – pro bono, and with great professionalism.


Aviva Adler
I have relied upon Voleh.org and Tzvi twice now to help me with legal issues, and have been so impressed with Tzvi’s prompt responses and commitment to helping olim chadashim navigate the legalities of their new lives in Israel. The first was a landlord – tenant issue. Tzvi called back within hours of my email query, on his way out of a restaurant in the evening, and continued to correspond with me and speak with me on the phone while I sorted out my landlord problem over the next few days. The second time I contacted Tzi was just a few hours go, with an Israeli labor law question. Once again, Tzvi responded to me within a few hours with the text of the relevant Israeli law, succinct answers, and an invitation to call him with any additional questions. I am so grateful for Tzvi’s prompt — and FREE -legal advice, and I highly recommend Voleh.org and Tzvi for anyone who needs help with legal or administrative issues in Israel. He and his organization are providing a tremendous service to olim chadashim! Kol hakavod, and THANK YOU!

I was given Tzvi’s firm’s name at the last second because I needed someone to go over a document in Hebrew with me so I could sign it– Tzvi was amazingly helpful! Despite the fact that he was on vacation, he responded to my email immediately, and within a few hours I was at the office with one of the other attorney’s there willing to help me out. No mess, no fuss, totally professional and helpful. I wold absolutely come here first in the future with any legal issues I would have. Amazing service that is truly a blessing for Olim who are unfamiliar with the way things work around here. Can’t say enough good things– people and companies/firms like this are a rarity, no matter what country you are in!


Jude
Thank you Tzvi. The Voleh organisation is real. It’s no trick with a sign saying” free legal services to olim or those considering olim that promises much & delivers little or worse a large unexpected legal bill. This is an organisation of excellent lawyers who have chosen to do something remarkable – ongoing mitzvot for those considering aliyah or who have made aliyah.
Tzvi is so helpful, straightforward & does exactly what he says he is going to do & gives good advice & then offers to stay the course. He really restores a bit of faith in humanity. He’s remarkable & so is the organisation, it’s a gift to find an organisation like Voleh anywhere in the world, & very special that it’s in Israel. Tikun Olam.

In a society where you don’t get what you need unless you nag and hassle, Tzvi’s quick comeback is especially appreciated. His straightforward and to the point input, saves you valuable time, money and energies. It was wonderful to find someone who actually listens and then also jumps on the bandwagon in helping you achieve your objective.
Thank you, Tzvi, for caring.


Josh
Tzvi was an enormous help to me when I came to him for advice.
– – He gave me useful, straightforward advice
– – His responses to emails were always very prompt indeed
– – He gave me a realistic view of likely outcomes
– – He helped me understand documents I received in ivrit
– – He had no hesitation in recommending a specialist to me in the area that I needed
– – Despite numerous calls and emails, all the advice came on a pro-bono basis!
– I would highly recommend him!


Debbie
I’m happy to share my very positive experience with Tzvi. I was in one of those difficult situations: I had done some work for someone who refused to pay me my final paycheck. I was getting nowhere fast trying to deal with the person who owed me the money. And then I contacted Tzvi. He intervened in the matter, and no question about it: He got me the money I was owed. In addition, he was very honest with me, and educated me about my situation. I am forever grateful for his help and kindness and caring. And he did all this as a chessed, for no payment from me. A tremendous person. Thank you Tzvi!


Joan
This is not a typical testimonial because Tzvi is not a typical lawyer. When one says, “He gave me his time” it means a lot, but it’s not just about the time. [I spoke with another lawyer a few months back about a different issue and he suddenly snapped out of one tone and into another: “Well, that’s it. According to my watch, I just gave you two minutes of my time for free. Time is money. If you want more of my time, make an appointment and you’re welcome to start paying.”] – – The practice of law is about breadth of knowledge and ability to extend advice. In this instance, I was asking for information on behalf of Israeli friends who were in a jam. But it’s more than that. It is attitude. – – Tzvi was born into the role of someone who actually cares about the people who seek his guidance. This is what separates him from the vast majority of people practicing law. It is a combination of his knowledge of the law, his ability to communicate it and his positive, caring attitude that separates Tzvi from the crowd. – – Unlike Shakespeare’s notation in King Lear, “Then ’tis like the breath of an unfee’d lawyer; you gave me nothing for’t” Tzvi will gift you with his time and expertise and share himself with you because you are a person in need — accent on you as a person, rather than you as a walking purse. – – I will be returning to Tzvi for services the next time I am in need of a lawyer for myself, as reality dictates that we are all in need of one from time to time. I do not hesitate in recommending him as a partner in the legal process. This is the one person, along with my doctor and accountant, whose number it is essential to keep in my mobile phone’s memory!

I saw your janglo post and emailed you, expecting not to get a response. Not only did i get a response, but it was quick and answered my question. Thank you for the service you provide.


Pnina and Raphael Kaufmann
Zvi was very helpful in getting us out of a financial mess we found ourselves in. New olim beware: creditors can freeze your bank account, stop you leaving the country and even stop your drivers’ license, all without telling you. All this because you signed for a letter when the postman knocked at the door without knowing what it was. Thankfully Zvi helped us negotiate the highly inflated prices down a little and get this whole nightmare over with. Moral of the story – never sign anything in Hebrew!


Suri Piro
I sent a message to Mr. Szajnbrum this evening and within a couple of hours he answered all of my questions clearly and concisely. I have never corresponded with a lawyer who not only gives of their time freely to help people (in my case, a new Oleh) but also responds so quickly and with care. Thank you so much for answering my questions regarding my rental contract. I now feel more empowered as a new Israeli citizen to handle what could have been a potentially difficult situation that would have ended up costing me a lot of money. Thanks so much!!!


Jack Beckerman
In writing this comment I am lost for words as everything I could write is said. – But I will say this one thing. I have never experienced such a quick accurate response to my request ever before and would certainly use their service without any hesitation.


Dan
Dear Tzvi, – Thank you for your quickly attention to my email. The answers that you provided us give us a good start to continue our journey. You words of encouragement and truthfulness make us feel comfortable with your practice. we will not have any doubt to use your professional service again as we needed in the future. – Again, thank you very much.


Hershell Goldman
For someone who is working without fees and for so many varied clients with so many varied problems Tzvi is just amazing. He readily grasps the issues, is cool and calm in his analysis and straightforward with his advice. – – He answers emails the same day, usually within an hour; and calls back on the telephone when he has promised to do so. – – I don’t know how he does all this. I expected to be passed on to a junior colleague but no, Tzvi dealt with my problem himself. – – Thanks.

I’m very glad that I met Tzvi and then Voleh, because my situation was very complicated, “everything was going really wrong”, but like an angel he could open the doors that seemed to be absolutely closed and locked. He was absolutely fair, honest, generous and benevolent. And he keeps helping me to solve some problems that seem to be lost. I really feel that I have to thank this AMAZING MAN, whom I was really lucky to meet. It’s a pity that he’s so busy, so it’s difficult to keep in touch with him. I consider him as a family member and an example of an EXCELLENT LAWYER, someone with insight and a large sense of justice. I hope his life will be long and full of happiness and victories, and that he’ll be able to get the double of all the help he gave me and my family. I wish you and Voleh a lot of blessings, as we can consider as something that REALLY WORKS in Israel. – – I HAVE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE WELL ENOUGH HOW MUCH I HAVE TO THANK TO VOLEH AND TO TZVI, who could afford me the BEST YEAR OF MY ENTIRE LIFE. SHANA TOVA, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH.


Anat Schlocker
As not such an ola chadasha I did not know about VOLEH until a real olah chadasha told me to check out this web site. I wish so much I new about it when I made aliayah. We must equip ourselves with knowledge and this web site provides information that you are not given by anyone when you make alyiah. I had a few pressing questions and was able to have a lenghty phone conversation with Tzvi one of the lawyers at voleh. He gave me time and equiped me with knowledge and a wealth of resources. Thank you so much. I hope I don’t need to use there services in the future, but if I need any assistance voleh is wear I’m going. I will also tell my friends, because I’m certain they don’t know about this service of chesed that is available to them.


Aaron A.
When I met with Mr. Szajnbrum over one year ago I was impressed by his insightfulness into a variety of legal facets here in Israel. – – I have met a number of attorneys here in Israel, but when it comes down to immigration, employment, commercial law I always turn to Tzvi for advice. He is quick on his feet and dynamic in his response, but most importantly; he always gets the job done.


Olga Kats
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tzvi for all his help. This is really amazing that such service exists! I haven’t contacted Voley by myself, I sent a question to the NBN Yahoo group, and got Tzvi’s email as a reply. Not only did he answer my question, he asked me to send him my current rental contract, reviewed it and also advised to send him our next contract before signing it – all for free! – May Hashem send you a lot of blessings for everything that you do!


D.B

Kol a kavod for all you have done for us Olim. Thank you and please be back soon…. Shabbat Shalom…..

Amazing Results – Yesterday I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Tzvi as he agreed to help me take on my issues with HOT cable company. He managed to accomplish more in 20 minutes than I have in over 2 months! To say I am hopeful once again that this mess will be solved is an understatement. Tzvi also helped me in my personal career life, just because I mentioned my job. He is a wonderful, caring individual with a well of knowledge that the olim community here in Israel are lucky to be able to tap into.


Vanessa
Thanks to Mr. Szajnbrum I felt more confident and secure dealing with the pressures and tricks of a real estate agency, including the review and changes to the rental agreement. From feeling overwhelmed and scared to knowing my rights and the consequences of my actions, everything done promptly, calmly, undoubtedly experienced, professional and, what helps a lot, with a positive tone. This service is a blessing to olim. Thank you so very much!


Carol Dweck
Tzvi has been great and very helpful at guiding me with some issues i’ve been having with my new apartment. He always made himself available to help, always finding the time to both talk and respond to my emails immediately. I’d highly recommend using his services and just speaking to him in general – you’re bound to have an interesting discussion with him! Thank you for being so great and for all the help 🙂

M & A
wow! thank you is not enough. – Tzvi was incredibly generous in helping us resolve a most unpleasant issue that needed immediate attention. His advice was on the mark and prevented the matter from spiraling out of control. He went above and beyond any expectation. He acted as a friend would putting his heart and soul into it. For all those who are suspicious of the legal system, of lawyers in general, Tzvi is not your average attorney, he is someone you can actually trust.


Shmuel
Thanks! – I was very happy with the fast and very helpful advice. Thank you!

I contacted Tzvi to review an employment contract and was pleasantly surprised by how quickly he responded and set up a meeting (in fact it was the next day!). He reviewed the entire contract with me and explained things I could never have known on my own. I could tell how much Tzvi really cares about my rights as an employee. I feel so happy to know that there are complimentary legal services looking out for the best interest of new Olim. Thank you Tzvi for all of your help!

Tzvi did a great job of helping me cope with a complicated mess between three different government agencies. I didn’t know which one to go to first. Actually, he gave me the courage to tackle it, and in the end, it was much simpler than either of us had supposed. It is solved now!


Marvin Fine
Shalom Tzvi:

– I want tell you that I learned a great deal from the articles that you have written and posted on your web site. I could not agree with you more; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While I am normally careful, I have been “extra careful” in Israel and thank g-d everything has worked out well, albeit with many obstacles.

– If I could summarize the problems that I have had heretofore, I would say 90% relate to the language barrier. It is all encompassing.

– In Canada, I did almost everything on the web with the addition of personal phone calls. In Israel, email hardly works. You generally never even get a reply. Now, I use Google translate and send the emails in Hebrew; the batting average is getting better.

– Things are getting easier every day, and I am really enjoying my time in Israel.

– Since the weather is so good, I am outdoors a lot of the time and the diet consisting of mostly fruits & vegetables has enabled me to drop weight without dieting so much so that my blood pressure pills have reduced from 40 mg to 5. I am just about off them.

– You are truly doing a great service to the community and I would encourage your organization work as it is a needed service.

– Warmest regards,

– Marvin Fine

Help with Furniture Company – Many thanks again for saving the day. There is no way I could have dealt with this case myself. You did a magnificent job of listening patiently to my struggle, assessing the personalities involved, giving me insight on how the Israeli court system views things, advising me what to do, and preparing the case in a professional manner. You even came to court and helped me with myriad last-minute glitches that would have completely gone over my head! Thank you for being there for me.

True Chesed – Attorney Tzvi Szajnbrum sets an example of true chesed.

I am sure all of my fellow readers who enjoy your articles agree with me. I am an English editor, so if you ever need any assistance, let me know. It would be only a small way I could repay you for the advice you have so freely given in your articles. – – Again, I wish you and your family a Chag Pesach Sameach.

I would just like to say this organisation is fantastic, and i have so much respect and will help you any time you ask, if i can. Good luck


Reuven G
Tzvi handled a billing issue with Bezeq for me quickly, efficiently and painlessly. It was great to have someone deal with the intricacies of a system that is different from what we are used to concerning billing disputes. Thanks to Tehillah Hessler for letting me know about this organization.


David
Recently I asked Tzvi for his help to fully understand my rigths and obligations as a new immigrant who is about to enroll in the army. – Not only he explained me in detail my options, he also helped me personally to handle the beaurocracy and have a chance to reach very good assignments.


Avi
Tzvi took the time to personally respond to my inquiry and was of great help to me. Thank you!


Shoshanah Shear
I first met Tzvi Szajbrum when starting a blog related to inspiration, tips and advice for new Olim. Tzvi very kindly offered to provide articles with a legal nature for the blog and these can be found under “Guest Posts” on http://welcomingolim.blogspot.com The articles have proven to provide useful information that New Olim and Potential Olim are searching for and have a link to how to contact Tzvi. – – Tzvi very generously shares his articles on a regular basis adding a benefit to the blog on many levels. – – I had occasion to turn to Tzvi for professional assistance when needing to re-new my Occupational Therapy license with the Ministry of Health here in Israel. The process was proving to be time consuming and complicated. Tzvi Szajbrum intervened as a professional kindness that he offers to Olim. His assistance was invaluable, ending in the joy of receiving my new license right in Jerusalem, enabling me to meet Tzvi in person. – – I would certainly recommend any Olim to turn to Tzvi for any legal assistance. Tzvi, knows the process and can shorten and ease most difficulties Olim come up against, he is prompt in returning an email or phone call and a pleasure to work with.


Alyssa
I had a question about Employment rights and received an answer from Tzvi immediately. Thanks!


Shelly
Thank you for the quick and helpful response! – Shelly


Deborah
I am a new oleh, (just 2.5 months) and I was in a BAD situation with my apartment and landlady. Tzvi met with me the day of my disaster, spoke to their lawyer, put demands/agreements in writing, and settled it all. I don’t know what I would have done without him! THANK YOU!!!


Lia
I’m an ola chadasha and I had a really bad experience with my old israeli roommate who tried to take advantage of me and the contract we signed, she didn’t paid the entire year of rent and at the end of the contract I was responsible for her debt, I was in crisis and Tzvi helped me right away, he made me feel protected for the first time since I’m in Israel, I wish there were more people like him who cares for real. He’s a great lawyer and an amazing person, I have not enough words to thank for what he did for me. – Thank you Tzvi!


jonah wolf
I reached out to Tzvi after running into difficulty with a local vendor. Thank You Tzvi for being so responsive and taking the time to assist me navigating the legal system in Israel!


Helen Oster
Tzvi understood immediately what our problems were as Olim, and wrote a clear and concise letter to Misrad HaChinuch on our behalf. – – There is no doubt that if we ever need a lawyer in the future we would ask Tzvi to represent us. – – thank you!


Ken Litvack
I never meet an attorney who was so generous with his time and was able to answer our inquiry over night. – Thank you for you help and advice and we are looking forward to meeting you on our trip to Israel in December – – All the Best – – Ken


adalia salomaa
Dear Voleh, I am impressed to see that this organization is in place for new Olim such as myself to assist us in the legal aspects of Israel 🙂 Thank you for what you do. Your advice is invaluable.


Chaya Goldsmith
I recently contacted Tzvi to network for employment opportunities. As busy as he is, he personally responded quickly and then went to area professionals, requesting that they get in touch with me. His website person, Tehilla Hessler, promptly contacted me with suggestions and advice. – – Many thanks to both of you! – – Chaya Goldsmith


Shmuel Furman
Tzvi and voleh were very helpful to us in reviewing the rental contract for our apartment. I emailed a copy of the lease and within a few hours, I received back the lease with recommendations for changes that were for our benefit. I highly recommend that every oleh contact the voleh organization for help before entering into a rental contract for their new home in Israel.


Shaindy Eisenberg
Thank you! – I am so grateful to Tzvi Szajnbrum in answering my e-mail right away. I was finally directed to the right resources through his reply. Lots of time could have been saved if I had known about this invaluable site earlier. – – Shaindy, Jerusalem


Ephraim
Our family had a legal problem that needed to be dealt with urgently. We had no idea what to do, and did not know an attorney to whom we could call for help. Thankfully someone suggested we call to Mr. Szajnbrum. Immediately understanding the extent of our problem, he not only took the time to take our call right away, he also helped us deal with the situation the same day. Knowing how busy he is, and all the other people that he and his organization need to help, we were amazed that he was so kind and agreed to help us right away with this emergency situation. He is a true mensch, and a real professional. I strongly recommend anyone in need of an attorney to contact him, and I also urge anyone looking to donate to an organization that really helps people and affects their lives to think of donating to this wonderful and very worthy cause.


Naomi
My thanks to – Adv. Szajnbrum for his advice which I will follow up.


G Burstyn
As olim, we had heard that Tzvi reviewed rental contracts pro bono, and that’s exactly what he did for us. He even answered follow-up questions and offered to speak to the ba’al habayit if there were further questions. The service he provides is truly extraordinary and invaluable to olim.


Aarão Benchimol
I thank you, Mr. Szajnbrum, for the atention and for the juridical advices that I just received. – – Kind Regards,


Avi S.
Tzvi helped us out in a big way by reviewing our rental contract free of charge. He provided excellent advice and we are so grateful. – – Thank you Tzvi and we wish you all the blessings in the world!


Aaron A.
When I met with Mr. Szajnbrum over one year ago I was impressed by his insightfulness into a variety of legal facets here in Israel. – – I have met a number of attorneys here in Israel, but when it comes down to immigration, employment, commercial law I always turn to Tzvi for advice. He is quick on his feet and dynamic in his response, but most importantly; he always gets the job done.


Bryan Marco
Tzvi Szajnbrum provided very quick and helpful advice relating to a debt I have with an evil Israeli cell phone provider. He offered help above and beyond what was asked. Very much appreciated, so nice to have somebody there to help with legal problems here in Israel!


Amira Feldman
Tzvi Szajnbrum was ever so helpful! – – After being released from the army close to 6 months ago, I recieved ahospital bill in the mail that the IDF claimed they had already paid. Apparently they hadn’t, and I was stuck with a huge bill that was the IDF’s responsibility to pay. After multiple attempts at contacting the Unit of Health in the IDF without success I was put in touch with Tzvi Szajnbrum. Tzvi set up an appointment immediately after speaking with him on the phone. He assessed the situation and took care of everything the same day! Within 12 hours of our appointment I was faxed all the relevant forms from the IDF stating that they had been contacted by Tzvi, and would be paying the bill immediately. – – Tzvi is very friendly, professional, and provided me with the most efficiant service that I have seen so far in Israel!


Hana
Thank G-d for this service. I had no idea what to do. You are tzaddikim!


Roz Groszman
I contacted Voleh for help in locating communities for my Pilot Trip. Thank you for the very fast & expert advice. I would recommend your website to those considering Aliyah who need guidance and information. I sincerely appreciated the help, and ultimately it will, b”eh, speed up my Aliyah deliberations. – – You have great volunteers who answer questions personally, and got to meet someone in a community which I am now considering as a target community for Aliyah. – – Thank you again, – Roz Groszman


Ben
WOW !!! Tzvi has helped me, again. First, Tzvi helped me with a rental agreement I never should signed; Tzvi found the problems with agreement and spoke with the landlord on my behalf. Next, when I did find a great apartment with a sincere landlord, Tzvi checked both the real estate agent agreement and the rental agreement making sure it was OK before I signed it; lucky for me, Tzvi checked the real estate agent agreement since it said I pay the fee whether or not I rent the apartment. Now, I was offered a job (my first since aliyah) and the job required a contract. Of course, the contract was in Hebrew and since I do not know either Hebrew or Israeli contracts, I really needed Tzvi. Sure enough, Tzvi reviewed the contract and told me exactly which parts were not right. Thanks Tzvi !!! An oleh would be lost without you.


 

Chava
I am so grateful to Tzvi who even communicated with me while he was overseas! He revised a rental lease and made me feel more confident that we were following the accepted procedure and ‘getting it right’. He came back with revisions extremely quickly along with good things for me to look out for before signing. This is our first rental in Israel and with so many details to think of when making aliya, that it was nice to know there was someone we could trust completely. Thank you Tzvi and assistants. We appreciate your professionalism and excellence. Thanks again.


Ana Luiza
I have just very good things to say about Tzvi and his work! I am in Israel for 3 years and he already saved me of a lot of trouble… Moving to a new country is a hard challenge and we meet people on the way that make our dream to live in Israel more possible. Tzvi is one of them, with any doubt. Always with a good humor, he helped me at least 4 different times, when I was having problems in Israel: to sue an insurance company after a car accident, to keep my job after a Gyius letter, to sue a Cellular company, to make my rights of buyer being taken seriously by a Jewelry Store… Doesn’t matter how nervous or worried I was, he helped me to understand that everything would be OK (even if the things wouldn’t work out). Tzvi: you make all the difference in my life in Israel! Thank you! Again and again!


Deborah
Tzvi was great when I needed help getting the benefits I was entitled to when I got fired. He was a great help navigating round my unusual situation! – – Thanks so much!!!

Tzvi was very quick to respond to an issue we had with a rental contract. He was knowledgeable on the subject matter and we appreciated his help. Thank you!


Daniela
Tzvi- – – Thanks ever so much for the rich and knowledgeable site as well as your speedy, personal response to my individual email regarding independent contractor tax rates. It’s rare that someone is knowledgeable and responsive in Israel and so very wholeheartedly. I always share this site with new olim (and old ones!). – – Thanks so much and Shanah Tova- – – Daniela


Simon
We had a scary looking letter in the post, and Tzvi was helpful in putting our minds at ease and giving a quick and to the point suggestion on what to do next. Some aspects of Israeli law are scary, and I really appreciate knowing that there is a qualified person out there who can help. Thanks!


Daniel Goldmeier
Thank you Tzvi Szajnbrum. – You resolved my situation quickly and perfectly. – – I am grateful that you put your talents and expertise to work on the behalf of oliim. – – Thank you


David
Saw your stand at the Expo Klita 2011 show in Tel Aviv on Thursday. E-mailed you Friday late afternoon and got good answer to my question on Sunday afternoon. Excellent customer service. Will keep Tzvi’s card on my desk for any future legal problems or questions. Will also recommend to others who may have difficulty understanding Israeli bureaucracy.


Hilary Cohen
Thanks for the valuable advice and assistance you offer whenever I have contacted you. The information is always precise, informative and very specific. Many thanks.


B Schloss
What a wonderful service Mr Tzvi Szajnbrum has set up for new olim! He took the time to answer all the many questions that I had, making himself available even though Im sure he is an extremely busy man! He offered quick, friendly and professional help with a complicated legal question. I was very impressed! Thankyou!


Jeremy
What a wonderful service, and badly needed. Thank you so much Tzvi!


Abidjan
As Olim, we are truly lucky that an organization like Voleh exists. Not only did the website provide us with important information, but Tzvi met with us and all the time we needed to answer any question we could possibly think of thoroughly. Thank you so much!


Jon Josef Haas
Very helpful – I ask for some information – and few hours later I received all the information I asked for. – GREAT SERVICE – Thank you


Ann Louise Shlom
Thank you so much Tzvi for your very helpful advise. May you continue to do this wonderful work and be able to help others in need.


 

Roz
I sincerely appreciate all the effort you put into putting together personalized community info for me. You are really the first one to be so helpful.


Shoshana
Thank you, Tzvi, for your speedy reply. I sent you an e-mail with my question this morning and you replied a few hours later! Wow! This is a wonderful service to olim.


Richard Bluestone
After receiving a threatening letter from our our former landlord stating he was withholding most of our deposit, Tzvi saw us the same day and immediately made contact with the landlord. He and his team drafted a claim form within days of meeting him, as the landlord was leaving Israel. – – This forced the landlord to settle at a higher amount than we would ever envisage at the outset. I can’t recommend him and his team enough. I have no hesitation in recommending him. Its people like Tzvi and his team make such a difference and its comforting to know there is someone like him helping Olim in difficult times.


Shula
Thank you so much for your help with the Hebrew lease. I wish your organization had enough funding to actually translate contracts into English!


Dick Harris
Legal help. – Tzvi, thank you ever so much for being there for us and your prompt, thorough review of our apartment-lease. Your expert comments and suggestions were just what we needed as new Olim trying to make sense of an all-Hebrew contract under the pressure of time. The legal assistance that you and your staff provide – and free of charge! – is a rare and wonderful service. And I am gratefully telling all of my aliyah-considering friends about it. You have our heart-felt appreciation.


Ruthie Saragosti Paz
Dearest Tzvi and the Voleh team, – It is with great admiration for your selflessness and generosity that I write to commend you on your contribution to the Zionist dream. Your help is only partly legal, in fact it is mostly ideological. Yesher koach for your share in helping olim make it in Israel and stay…may your efforts be returned to you ten fold! – Yours, – Ruthie and Tzachi Paz


Susan Hyde
A big thank you to Tzvi Szajnbrum. I had a query about a clause in an employment contract and emailed him. Within minutes I received 2 emails (1 reassuring me that my question would be dealt with, 1 with his response to my query). – As an olah chadasha from South Africa, not knowing Israeli law and employment issues, this was a huge help. – Bless you, Tzvi! I hope I wont need legal help but if I do, you are first on my list. – Susan Hyde – Ramat Beit Shemesh


Samara Gordon
A huge thank you to Tzvi for his input with my problems. I have been at my wits end with the Bituach Leumi and my former Employers. – As I am in Eilat, Tzvi advised that I should rather find a local attorney and he – is currently asking around t direct me in the right direction. – Thanks you so much – Samara


Anat Schlocker
As not such an ola chadasha I did not know about VOLEH until a real olah chadasha told me to check out this web site. I wish so much I new about it when I made aliayah. We must equip ourselves with knowledge and this web site provides information that you are not given by anyone when you make alyiah. I had a few pressing questions and was able to have a lenghty phone conversation with Tzvi one of the lawyers at voleh. He gave me time and equiped me with knowledge and a wealth of resources. Thank you so much. I hope I don’t need to use there services in the future, but if I need any assistance voleh is wear I’m going. I will also tell my friends, because I’m certain they don’t know about this service of chesed that is available to them. – – Anat Schlocker, Modiin aliyah from the USA 2006


Ktina Chozeret
Thank you Tzvi Szajnbrun for helping me stand for my rights and demand what’s mine. After an unjust employer refused to pay my salary, Tzvi instilled in me the feeling that moving from New York to Israel was not a mistake professionally speaking. I wish more Olim and Ktinim Chozrim knew about this invaluable organization. Tzvi gave me 100% of his attention, answered all my calls and emails promptly, and met with me to resolve a sticky workplace situation. – Thank you so much, I’ll never forget it


Hilary Cohen
I would like to thank you for the service and assistance given to my daughter when she came to your offices to get the form for aliya signed. – The service was prompt, efficient and a very pleasant experience. – – With kind regards


Shawna N.
Tzvi Szajnbrum is a legal expert who is practical and pragmatic in approach but exceeds all expectations in achieving an outcome that benefits everyone. He was able to arrange an agreement for me that went above and beyond the ordinary. I was in a tremendously difficult financial situation not unlike many other israeli’s, however, I trusted his advice and direction and now have a plan and agreement that I can follow through with confidence. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Tzvi and I will always appreciate his hard work and guidance on my behalf.


 

Sharon Mehl
This was a wonderful experience for me. Tzvi was fantastic, and replied to me only a few hours after I had e-mailed my questions. The answers were excellent. – – I really appreciate this service, and would like to help in any capacity. – – Sincerely, – – Sharon

Few months ago I discovered the Voleh’s site and asked a question regarding the matrimonial contract . I was contacted quite imediately by Mr.Tzvi Szajnbrum who talked to me and explained in detail all I have to know about this subject. – Thank you.


Anonymous
I’m very glad that I met Tzvi and then Voleh, because my situation was very complicated, “everything was going really wrong”, but like an angel he could open the doors that seemed to be absolutely closed and locked. He was absolutely fair, honest, generous and benevolent. And he keeps helping me to solve some problems that seem to be lost. I really feel that I have to thank this AMAZING MAN, whom I was really lucky to meet. It’s a pity that he’s so busy, so it’s difficult to keep in touch with him. I consider him as a family member and an example of an EXCELLENT LAWYER, someone with insight and a large sense of justice. I hope his life will be long and full of happiness and victories, and that he’ll be able to get the double of all the help he gave me and my family. I wish you and Voleh a lot of blessings, as we can consider as something that REALLY WORKS in Israel. – – I HAVE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE WELL ENOUGH HOW MUCH I HAVE TO THANK TO VOLEH AND TO TZVI, who could afford me the BEST YEAR OF MY ENTIRE LIFE. SHANA TOVA, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH.


Shira Goldsmith
Tzvi Szajnbrum was extremely helpful in guiding me through going to court against Pelephone. I was almost resigned to just continuing to let them cheat me when I heard about Voleh. I met with Tzvi who wrote up a complaint form for me and guided me in all of the steps for going to small claims court. Thank you for all of your assistance! Very much appreciated.


adalia salomaa
Without a single doubt I recommend Tzvi (Henrique) Szajnbrum to not just my closest friends but to my family as well. When I am Prime Minister he will continue to be my personal Attorney. Never have I met someone with such passion for truth and justice, someone so keen to detail and gets the job done seemingly effortless and precisely. Szajnbrum is a man of dedication and true to his word. He cares for the community and helping others. He too was an immigrant and understands the constant battle of the bureaucracy one must face each day starting over in a new country. If you have any questions and need further references please do not hesitate to contact me at danielle.adalia.salomaa@gmail.com

Thank you to Tzvi for his prompt, professional and expert advice. He is a caring soul who goes above and beyond (150%) to help with great attention to detail. We recommend Tzvi to anyone, you will be very pleased!


Moshe Fuld
Tzvi called me within a day of my sending him an e-mail inquiry. He was very informative and answered all my questions. Kep up the good work!


Nadine
Tzvi has been incredibly generous with his time and a huge help in dealing with a stressful situation. Adjusting to life in Israel has been challenging but we are so thankful to have such amazing support.


Michael Abitbol
As a new oleh with a new job offer in Israel and very limited Hebrew, I needed assistance reading my employment contract and advice on changes that are appropariate to make, what is already included in the law, and anything unreasonable asked of me by th employer. Adv. Szajnbrum returmed my call within minutes, looked over the contract I emailed him, made comments, and replied within a couple hours. He was extremely professional, responsive, and helpful in resolving all issues and questions. I am extremely grateful for his assistance and this service he provides to new olim.


Max
Attorney Tzvi Szajnbrum sets an example of true kindness by answering my short question within an hours time.


Judy
If only more lawyers were as courteous, professional, straightforward and responsive as Tzvi–they wouldn’t have such a bad name!


Michael H
I met with Tzvi Szajnbrum and he was very helpful in resolving my issue. The service was professional and efficient. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Arye
Zvi called me back soon after I called him. He asked me to send him a copy of my rental agreement, and that day I had the information and advice that I needed to proceed. He personally spoke to my landlord for me. Things were clearer for me after that. I really appreciate his help.


KC
Thank you so much for the prompt and valuable response. I was very impressed and would recommend your services to anyone.


Resa
It was truly amazing to find an office such as yours who was so willing to provide prompt and “free” advice without even having a formal meeting. As a new immigrant such a service is so important and I really thank you for choosing this route and moreso for specialisng in areas that affect new immigrants mostly. Keep up the good work!


laina mcnamee
It is hard for me to believe there is such a service, free, fast, truthful and professional. To get an answer without having to make an appointment, pay a prohibitive fee and to be able to understand it, is truly a life-line. I am very grateful.


Jeremy
With no protexia in this country, being an oleh can be challenging. Thank goodness Tzvi was able to help me. He really provides a crucial service.


Hershell Goldman
For someone who is working without fees and for so many varied clients with so many varied problems Tzvi is just amazing. He readily grasps the issues, is cool and calm in his analysis and straightforward with his advice. – – He answers emails the same day, usually within an hour; and calls back on the telephone when he has promised to do so. – – I don’t know how he does all this. I expected to be passed on to a junior colleague but no, Tzvi dealt with my problem himself. – – Thanks.


david
A special thank to Zvi that also this time helped us quickly and with great success after our call.. this time the problem was that they were delaying too much the payment of the liquidation after that my wife has been fired. thanks to Zvi now is all fixed


Shoshanah
I am only a few weeks away from making aliyah from California and was referred to Tzvi Szajnbrum to help in transferring my license as a dental hygienist here in the USA so that I can teach and practice in Israel when I arrive. He responded quickly to my initial e-mail and has suggested that as soon as I arrive that we go together to the Ministry of Health’s office. Although I still don’t know the end result, Mr Szajnbrum has given me the encouragement I needed at this time in my aliyah process to know that I have someone who is extremely qualified and willing to help an olah chadashah. What a blessing to have been connected to someone of his caliber who is willing to help me navigate the Israeli system so that I can quickly become a vital part of Israeli society! Todah rabbah Tzvi and your wonderful organization, Voleh! Can’t wait to personally meet you and go together to the Ministry of Health office!


 

Rick Berg
Thanks very much for your help Tzvi! – – I had a lengthy contract for an apartment rental which I sent to Voleh on a Friday morning as it was all in Hebrew (I do not read Hebrew very well and know nothing about Israeli law). – – Tzvi Szajnbrum sent it back to me not too long after Shabbat the very next day with his comments, suggestions, and explanations. This was vitally helpful to me. He should be commended and given the award for super-outstanding volunteer service to new olim. – – Unbelievable! Thanks again.


Adam
Whats amazing about Tzvi is his ability to make one completely confident in what he says, i listened and followed his words, and will now be able to close this chapter in my life. Tsvi, you are a good man, and i am sure you receive many thanks daily, but one more heart felt from me and my family can’t hurt, so thank you, truly. – – Warmest Regards


Jeremy
Tzvi is an amazing guy who is extremely knowledgeable, capable, and helpful. If you have any trouble navigating the Israeli system as a new oleh, as I did, I have no doubt you will benefit from his guidance and assistance. Thanks again Tzvi, for all you have done for me and my new family here in Israel.


Marina Berger
Tzvi Szajnbrum is professional, sincere and direct with his legal counseling. – I was amazed by the outstanding service that he provided me, he met with me the same week that I called him regarding my concern. Also, he was communicating with me via emails, phone calls and kept me informed at all the times. His legal attention and dedication is giving me a hope that I will able to receive a compensation for being terminated at work at pregnancy. I highly would recommend to use his services. – Marina


Nachama
Tzvi offers the most amazing help an Olim can find here. We came here 6 months ago and were challenged to make contracts in a foreign language and with a very different law system behind it. Tzvi gave us within one hour very helpful advise, he went over our new housing contract and made adjustments to prevent us getting in trouble 🙂 I will certainly call him with anything that will come to challenge us. – – THANK YOU SO MUCH!


Alyssa
Thank you very much Tzvi! I had a question and you were able to look into it and get back to me right away! Much appreciated!!

Dear Sir, – I thank you very much for your prompt help clearing my situation with the Ministry of Absorption. If indeed they follow through as they promised you, I will be able to return to ulpan next week and have chance to really adapt well in Israel. – Sincerely, – Myriam Obadia


David
I am an Oleh Chadash who made Aliyah approx. 1.5 year ago. After working for 9 months for a Company in Tel Aviv (my first job in the Country), my employer decided to “reduce the terms” of the employement. In plain English, this means that he wanted me to continue to work for him but for less money. – – Not knowing my rights in Israel, I contacted Voleh (Tzvi S.). I was quickly directed to Ayelet Zigdon, a Lawyer specilized in Labour Law. Ayelet offered me to meet with her on the same day (I was supposed to have another meeting with my employer the day after, so I really appreciated her availability). – – I found the advices I got from Ayelet very professional and clear. In particular, she explained to me that in Israel it is legal (and quite common) for an – employer to “adjust down” the terms of the employment of an employee. – According to her, the fact that they want to reduce my wages now is – because I’m still within the first year of employment and therefore – not entitled to any severance pay in case of redondancy. She also gave – me sone insights regarding notice period. Thus, after working for 9 – months, the notice period is approx. 13 days. – – Because there was no wrongdoing and because my employer still wanted me to stay in the Company, she advised me to negociate (which was wise). – – All in all, I can say that it was a helpfull meeting. I am pleased by – the assistance I’ve received.

Tzvi, – Thank you so much for your quick and sincere help! To bad you can’t help me find a new apartment as quick as your e-mails and phone calls :). Will definetly pass your name to Americans and Israelis alike! Thanks for the quick letter, sending it out for me, and caring for our health and well being! – Nicole


Rona Roth
Dear Tzvi – – I am no longer a new oleh, but always find your articles interesting and occasionally helpful. You are one of the reasons I keep getting InHasharom even though I now live in Ashkelon. – – I just wanted to thank you for your articles, and the work you are doing with new olim. – – Yishar koach, – – Shavua Tov – – Rona Roth


Devorah
I heard about Voleh and Tzvi from a friend who used them for a similar issue. This was a huge help for me as a new olah who doesn’t really understand the system here yet. I was able to get an appointment almost immediately, where Tzvi gave me a rundown of what I could and could not realistically expect from the Israeli legal system, and I walked out the door with a letter and a plan, more in control of my situation. With nowhere else to turn, this was a real lifesaver and I feel lucky to have found out about it.


Josh
I can’t speak highly enough about Tzvi. Hes a true mentsh. I would recommend him to everyone i know without hesitation.


Naomi Pelled
Thank you very much Tzvi for your expert advice. I had been trying to find a suitable lawyer to advise me for over a month with no luck. Nefesh B’Nefesh gave me your firms details 2 days ago. I contacted you straight away and you did everything you could to get back to me the same day. You have eased my mind and a solved a confused situation. I will be telling all the Portuguese and English speakers at Ulpan Etzion about you and your firms great work. – – Thank you for being there!


Rebeca
I have visited your site several times already and have been very impressed at the orderliness, completeness and easy access to any subject of interest to much of the public, to say nothing of the generosity of information which would at the very least, induce or redirect a person in pursuing his/her intentions. Very valuable advice, without which such advice would keep us in a quandary because it is a jungle out there and for every question there are half-answers, no answers, and/or no one to ask . Thank you for all that. – – Rebeca


 

Judy Lash balint
I have never met Tzvi in person, but just through my dealings with him by phone and e -mail, it’s obvious that his caring, professionalism and responsiveness are so out of the ordinary. Tzvi returns e mails and phone calls promptly and courteously and gives fully of his expertise and time. He is SO deserving of any honor and award in this country…b’hatzlacha, Tzvi!


Ed Truitt
Thanks Tzvi, – For the past two years, Tzvi Szajnbrum has helped our son fight for a decent job in the IDF. We first contacted Tzvi when the army sent our bright, highly motivated son to a training base for dropouts and delinquents (they misunderstood his US high school credentials) and again some months later when they “sentenced” him to a dead end job in logistics. Thanks to Tzvi’s persistance and professional help, our son is now working in a great army job helping IDF volunteers that puts his talents, energy and creativity to much better use. Many thanks, from the Truitt family, aliyah 2004.


Marvin Fine
I want to take the opportunity to recommend this organizations wonderful work. I have communicated with them on several occasions via email and have read a multitude or articles posted on their website – ALL FREE. – – These articles have been very helpful and were written for the layman in the most pragmatic of terms. In other words, devoid of legalize and written with the most practicle examples and advise. I can tell you that it is not as simple as it may sound. – – Things are done a lot differently in Israel to say the least. The greatest fear a person can have is a fear of the unknown. hen you come to a new country with a new language, culture, set of laws and metholodology of operating, the task can be daunting at best. – – May they continue their wonderful work.

Voleh has been extremely helpful in my move to Israel, helping me with Bituach Leumi issues. They helped me completely free of charge, and work pro bono out of willingness to help olim make a smooth transition and effective integration into Israeli society. It’s wonderful to know that there are legal offices in the country willing to help us and give us advice out of the goodness of their hearts.


Michael Hessler
I recommend Voleh as Outstanding Volunteers. Attorney Tzvi Szajnbrum’s guidance and hand-holding throughout our past three years of our assimilation has been priceless! He has helped us with rental contracts, landlord disputes, employment contracts, advice during and after employment termination, letters and phone calls to get us our severance pay and unemployment benefits – and just last week my wife called him from Cellcom where she was being abused by their “policies” for almost 4 hours and Tzvi resolved the situation in less than 5 minutes on the phone! Voleh’s services have been given to us free of charge – an incredible gift. – – I wonder how other people survive Aliyah without such guardian angels to watch over and protect them. Voleh has added new meaning to the concept that in Israel we are all mishpacha! We have no blood relatives in Israel, but we have found that we have family at Voleh.


Cori
Thank you so much for your help! Thanks to your free legal servies (who ever heard of such a thing?!), I will be able to rid myself of an issue that has been affecting my finances for years and start over fresh here in Israel. I would highly recommend you and your services to any oleh with legal issues or questions. Organizations like yours make it possible for olim to build their lives here!


Kate
Tzvi – thank you so much….for your time and help today, and for your patience and advice. I felt calmer after I left your office. – Us olim are very blessed to have you doing this work. – – Blessings of strength to continue this work and help change Israeli society for the better.


Rebecca
Tzvi is responsive and patient and will do all within his power to make you feel that you are being justified. His advice is invaluable and he is supportive every step of the way. Having to deal with legal issues as a new immigrant can be terrifying and draining but with Tzvi’s advice and expertise, you leave feeling with more control and prepared. – – You are providing a great service and all of the comments below mine represent that Thank you Tzvi!


Sally H
I would like to tell you that I am most impressed with the voluntary service provided by Voleh via the website. The articles are extremely well presented and to the point, and are most helpful to the English speaking layman in getting to know the system. They are also interesting reading even when the case does not relate directly to personal experience, so I sometimes pass them on. – – Thank you.


C & S
We had a “typical Israeli” who tried some sneaky moves to basically sue us for a bit of money we didn’t owe him, and he used a friend of his who is a lawyer to play the system against us to the fullest in what is called a “shitat matzliach”. – – Well, thanks to help from Voleh he didn’t get what he was asking for, and Tzvi was always willing to help out, by responding quickly to emails at all times of the day and night, and telling us what documents meant (we could scan and email PDFs and didn’t have to resort to the fax). We don’t know what would have happened without Tzvi, and are very grateful. – – I hope readers don’t have encounters with the legal system here, but if you do, Voleh is there to help out.


Shelly
This website is very informative and useful. Any immigrant could value from the articles here and the service provided. – – I want to especially thank Tzvi for taking the time to help me out. Dealing with Israeli bureaucracy is never easy and having someone as patient, helpful, and friendly as him is a blessing. Thank you again for your help!!!


Marc K
As an Oleh, I have found it difficult if not impossible to deal with official Israeli society. – – My darling mother went to Olam Habah. I had to transfer the title of her automobile to my name. I went three times to Misrad Rishuii and did not succeed. My Voleh attorney Tzvi ended up going twice and finally succeeded in transferring title. I could not have done it without him. – – His advice has been most helpful in helping me try and understand official Israel!


Sharon
I just wanted to let you know about a wonderful experience I just had. – I wrote an e-mail with a few questions regarding part-time worker rights. Within a minute I received an automated response letting me know that my e-mail was received and would be handled by one of the volunteers. Less than 24 hours later I received a response from Tzvi Szajnbrum. – I never expected such a quick response and all my questions were answered. This is an amazing organization. Thank you!


Michael S
Simply amazing is the case with Voleh & its founder Attorney Tzvi Szajnbrum! – I needed to file a small claims case and found all the instructions and lots of good information online at the Voleh website. All of this is provided without cost to the new and not so new immigrant. It was a case with a few problems and I thought it would be a waste of time to ask for advice, nevertheless I soon found myself in the Voleh Office speaking with Attorney Szajnbrum. I got all the advice I needed and some important follow-up information as new issues came to light. – – Voleh, Simply Amazing! They get my vote for the best support to all Immigrants both new and not so new, for free.


Ilana Rabinoff-Sofer
I understand that the Israel Bar Association in Tel Aviv is accepting recommendations for outstanding volunteers who have served the public. I would like to nominate “Voleh” for this award. – – I am an olah chadasha and had some ongoing issues with my employer and Voleh provided me with quick and efficient assistance that resulted in a complete resolution. For this service I was most grateful. Olim chadashim are often taken advantage of in the workplace because of our lacking Hebrew skills and incomplete knowledge of Israeli law. Voleh provides an invaluable service in this respect by helping olim to receive fair treatment in the workplace. – – Best Regards!


Ahuva
I came across this website and was amazed at what I read in some of the cases described that Tzvi dealt with. The thought of going through those experiences made me tremble with fear. I sent a couple emails with the odd question I had regarding taxes etc, and was amazed at how quickly Tzvi replied. I then realized how serious this VOLEH is! It certainly is a comforting thought to know that should I ever need serious help (may that never be the case!) there is somebody so responsive to turn to.


Julie J
I would like to nominate VOLEH for the outstanding volunteers award. – I am a recent olah chadasha and I wanted to settle a dispute with my – baal habait in small claims court in Jerusalem. They only accept – claims in Hebrew and my Hebrew is not proficient at all. I received – an appointment as soon as I could come to their offices. I met with – VOLEH and they spent about 2 hours helping me file the case. They – filled out all the paperwork for me in Hebrew and gave me directions – so that all I had to do was drop it off at the small claims court – office. It was an amazing service and they didn’t charge me one – shekel. I have already recommended their services to other olim and – strongly support their nomination as an outstanding volunteer.


 

Yael
Tzvi responded promptly and concisely to my questions and dilemma regarding an employment contract I was entering into. I was able to finalize a contract which gave me a feeling of security and was to my benefit when my employment ended. Without Tzvi’s input I would have been in a really problematic situation. Thank you so much.


Regina Célia
Tzvi Szajnbrum, agradeço muitíssimo pela sua atenção e orientação, muito nobre de sua parte em ligar para mim aqui no Brasil. – Espero um dia conhecer-te pessoalmente.


Ari
Tzvi Szajnbrun was very helpful in providing needed information in a very timely manner. He was a pleasure to speak with and professional in his manner. I deeply appreciate his assistance. I heartily recommend him.


Nadina
Mr. Szajnbrum provided me with assistance and comfort during a very difficult time. He was amazingly prompt, very kind and sympathetic, and he truly made a difference in my life right now. On top of that, the wealth of knowledge he shares for free and his willingness to devote precious time for helping new olim at no charge are truly remarkable. Thank you for the tremendous help!


Kevin
The Voleh Organization was extremely quick and helpful when I needed their assistance in looking over a rental lease. They provided detailed feedback and were quick to respond!!! THANKS


Michal Rabin
The Voleh Group Tsvi called me IMMEDIATLY on a friday afternoon when my apartment was flooded with feescies from TLV. They talked to my landlord and helped me in this horrible situation.


Ari Corman
After contacting Tzvi and Voleh, I received a reply within the hour, concerning an employment law issue I was having at work. – – It was very reassuring to have someone with experience in the field, get back to me so quickly, and enable me to understand the issues at hand. – – Yasher koach!


Ruth Peretz
I just want to say a Big thanks Tzvi Szajnbrum for all his help and Legal Advice. I was so lost in the Legal System here. I am so grateful for the time and on going Legal help. I have recommended your service to other friends also suffering with Legal problems.Thankyou again.


Yehuda Mayteles
I was pleasantly surprised by the prompt responses i got from Tzvi, it was very reassuring hearing your professional opinion and not being lost in the dark. – – Very impressed that my rental dispute was handled so fast considering that it was a relatively small issue- compared with what else must be going on out there – with not too much money involved. – Thank you Voleh.


Jessica
I am very pleased with my experience working with Tzvi and Voleh. Tzvi was very quick to respond and my matter was taken care of faster than I could have asked for. It was a huge help and a comfort to know that this level of support is available for an olah chadasha.


Tali S.
Tzvi was extremely helpful, professional, and prompt. He responded to me within minutes of contacting him. Tzvi took on my case immediately and closed it within three days. I highly recommend him for any and all olim! I have already referred friends just in case. – – Thank you so much for everything you’ve helped me with. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.


vaad bayit Ramat Beit Shemesh
Thanks to Tzvi and the staff of Voleh for taking the time to research and look into our vaad bayit issues. As a vaad comprised mostly of olim, we were not sure where to turn for a sticky issue, and Tzvi was able to give us clarity that allowed us to resolve our issue. it is comforting to know that there is a credible agency out there to turn to for advice that we can understand and rely on.


Hannah
Tzvi Szajnbrum responded to my question very promptly and gave me helpful advice.


Shachar
Tzvi Szajnbrum took my case right away and helped me resolve the issue very quickly. He provided an excellent service and was very friendly in the process. – I highly recommend him to new olim!


Ariela
Voleh is absolutely amazing. Not only was the first time I’ve left a lawyer’s office with a smile on my face, it was the first time that my issues with Bank HaPoalim have shown hope of a solution … within only a half an hour, too! Well, there’s still work to be done, but so far, couldn’t be happier. I’d totally pay for this service and will definitely come back to Tzvi Szajnbrum for any future legal needs in this country.


Dan
Dear Tzvi, – Thank you for your quickly attention to my email. The answers that you provided us give us a good start to continue our journey. You words of encouragement and truthfulness make us feel comfortable with your practice. we will not have any doudt to use your profesional service again as we needed in the future. – Again, thank you very much. – Dan


Jacob
Your legal help and advice was very helpful and Tzvi’s service excelled my expectations of a Lawyer in Israel. He give me 100% non-basis advices. I would – recommended Tzvil’s service no matter what the service and area of expertise you are looking for. Tzvil can point in the right direction.


 

dale
Id like to say thanks for the quick response of my query – thank you!


Gordon
Tzvi was wonderful! His quick and professional response to our questions were outstanding, he is an expert for sure, you will be very satisfied if you use his services. Thank you Tzvi!


Adam Bernstein
When we arrived here nearly 3 years ago we were ripped off by a seemingly charming lady who runs a short term apartment rental business in Jerusalem. It’s too long of a story to place here, so I’ve asked Tzvi to put the article on his site. You can read about our Short-term Rental-Ripoff in detail and how with Tzvi’s help our money was recovered.


Irene Shapiro
I appreciated the quick reply to my query.Thank you. – Irene Shapiro


judyinjerusalem
I turned to Tzvi for help with a summons I received–I had a helpful response within a few hours (at night!!) Kol hakavod to Tzvi and his team for the assistance they give to olim.


Suzie Jacobson
I asked Tzvi to peruse an agreement in Hebrew that Orange cell company asked me to sign. Orange wanted me to send a check for the full payment for the router that I returned to them and they in turn would reimburse me. It seemed a little suspect to me but Tzvi confirmed that I could sign it. I was very grateful for his speedy and expert advice and will have no hesitation in turning to him again.


Rivkah
I have turned to Tzvi for help in deciphering a business contract. Not only did I get what I asked for, but I also got a friendly advice as an olah chadashah. Thanks, Tzvi!! I won’t hesitate to come to you for help in the future. – Rivkah.


Daniella Azulay
Id like to say thank you for responding quickly and efficiently every time I needed as a person or professional. Great Work, well done!


sara
I’d like to thank Tzvi Szajnbrum for his support in my work giving me useful information – when I needed most. For this reason I was capable of achieving the success I intended to. – He was ever ready to answer my queries at anytime. I wish you all the best.


Maxine
Its was good to have someone to trust and turn to when i needed advise


 

David
Thanks for the quick turnaround in reviewing and approving the rental agreement!


Sanda Abramovici-Lam
What a magnificent tool. For those of us who do not have a voice cause we do not speak Hebrew and for anyone in need of a much needed help to deal with so much unwanted stuff.


Tamar
Tzvi Szajnbrum responded to my questions very promptly and gave me helpful and professional advice. As a free service to Olim! – – What more could one ask for?


Jacob Golan
Knows his stuff more than any lawyer I have ever known. Really knows the Israeli laws inside out. Highly recommend. – – Jacob


Franziska
I wouldn’t know what to do as an Olah Chadasha in this country without Tzvi and his team. You will get professional advice within no time!!! And to everyone who is about to make Aliyah, read ALL articles here. I should have and could have saved me some trouble. – – Great work, I’m highly recommending this fantastic service!!


Avi
Tzvi’s team looked over my Hebrew document and provided quick turnaround. With important comments, they noticed both little details and big things that could turn into issues. – – While I understood the gist of the contract, nothing beats a review from a professional attorney who knows the nuances of Hebrew contracts. – – He is doing a great service!


Rejane
Had a personal question for Dr. Tzvi and he returned my phone call very quickly. He is direct, honest, professional and it is simply great speaking to him. Will surely recommend his services!


Anonoymouse
Fantastic people – amazing service they provide – emailed with a question and within an hour had received a response including tips on how to deal with the situation that was very helpful and completely unrelated to law!! THANK YOU


Iddo
Thank you so much for the legal advice.. I had a question about a scummy crook landlord and what to do about him, and this firm answered me quickly. Also I needed a disclaimer for a website i intend to build and they sent me one. This is the first time i have ever received good service here in Israel, and ironically it came from a law firm. Thank you so much, and I will definitely be going to you if god-forbid i ever need legal representation. God bless.


Philip Saunders
Hi Tzvi – – I just want to express my view that your weekly posts on the Taanglo website were the very best thing on that site, and that they must be fools to turn you away, whatever their rules or reasons might be. As it happens, their daily e-mails have in recent times grown so large that it has become too much of a chore scanning down them to find the few items of interest, so I think that I’ll be happy to dispense with their e-mails and continue solely with yours. – – Best regards


Malka Meir
Thank you for helping me understand that when you get a letter stating that you owe money to a big phone company like Cellcom it doesnt always mean anything. It could all just be a mistake. Thank G-d it was. Very on top of the problem and called for me right away. Thank you again for your help. – – Malka from Tzfat


Eric Selmon
Tzvi, – Your assistance with the lease was invaluable. Not only were you willing and able explain confusing points and modify it to reflect our concerns comments, but you were very quick and responsive. Aliyah is a difficult transition, but you made this part simple. Thank you again. – Eric


Karel
I really wanted to thank Tzvi for all his help, support and follow up on all details. I am greatful for the values shared and the willingness to help others!


Elyakim
Poking around the internet for advice on fighting parking tickets in Israel and happened upon Voleh. I was pleasantly surprised at the speed of response, and I am happy to find this great resource for Anglos in Israel.


Rivka Motzeri
Thank you Tzvi for all of your help! What an incredible service. I had problems with my cellphone provider and Tzvi looked over all the information for me and gave me excellent advice fast. This service is wonderful and so important for olim whose language barriers make them targets for mistreatment. Keep up the incredible work! May you be blessed to always have the financial support you need to continue to provide this invaluable service.


Sarah Cordish
I received a fast response to my query. Both in reading the published articles on his website and my personal interaction with him, I am of the opinion Mr. Tzvi Szajnbrum is a man who truly loves the practice of law and using it to help others.


 

David & Ellen
Your consultation was super-helpful. We were much more aware of how to present the issues in our small claims court case. The insurance lawyer for the other side seemed really nervous… best of all we won!


Szilard H.
I really appreciate the rapid consultation I got and I hope that I can proceed with my case soon. – Best Regards to all people who are this helpful!


Zara
WOW! What an amazing thing you are doing for us olim chadashim. You are an inspiration and it is amazing to know you are there for us, helping us. You have given me a real sense of security, knowing that, should it ever come to it, I have you on my side and now it doesnt seem so bad that I have no family in Israel to turn to for a way out of the “deep sh1t.” – I really cant thank you enough, although I obviously wish I never have to speak to you again 😉 – I will be telling everyone how wondeful you are 🙂


Michael & Bracha Mirsky
Tzvi: – We want to thank you so much for you help reviewing our lease and helping us rewrite the Hebrew to eliminate the onerous terms they were asking. You responded quickly and effectively.- We would certainly recommend you and your services to anyone!


Maayan
Dear Tsvi, – I want you to know how much I appreciate your ongoing support. In the midst of making Aliyah to nonstop encountering

Rona Rorh
It is my pleasure to add my praise for the prompt, courteous, friendly and helpful assistance that I received. Were there more like Tzvi and Voleh, the world would be a better place. Yishar koach.


Alison
Tzvi’s assistance was unimaginably helpful, prompt, and thorough!

– With all the bureaucratic nonsense we have to put up with in this country, it’s nice to have someone on your side to advocate for you!


Adam
Tzvi and the Voleh staff are doing a great job and providing a wonderful service to the Olim community. Kol HaKavod!


Avigail T.
Tzvi Szajnbrum is honest, straight to the point, no bs, doesn’t try to make you “feel good”. He tells it like he sees it and does not waste your time. I would definitely come to him again for advise. Thank you Tzvi


Chana
You are doing an amazing job and have been able to help me since the moment i arrived in Israël! Yashar koach!


Hermanda
I would like to thank Tzvi for his availability to help with legal tangles – I have found his advice clear and sensible and I have promptly been able to sort out problems on this basis. Olim need to be much better treated than they currently are in Israel and Tzvi, your service is going a long way towards making this better treatment a reality. Todah rabah, Hermanda


Michael & Bracha Mirsky
Yet again we want to thank Tzvi for his very prompt and great advice on the lease contract for the apartment our son wants to share with friends on his aliyah!
– Michael & Bracha Mirsky


laina mcnamee
WHEN I FELT THAT I HAD NO WHERE ELSE TO TURN TO GET SOMEONE ON MY SIDE WHO COULD HELP END A NIGHTMARE DEAL WITH A COMPANY WHO HAD RIPPED ME OFF I REMEMBERED VOLEH. My explanation of the whole mess was daunting, but I got an answer immediately and for the first time in this sorry saga I felt hopeful. I am very grateful that this service exists and where truth can prevail.


 

Lou and Sheila
Thank you , Tzvi, for your timely advice. Your site is wonderfully laid out and we appreciated the complementary advice. As we get settled,you will certainly be on our list if the need for an attorney arises.


Judith Ronat M. D.
Dear Attorney Szajnbrum,
– I admire your industry, and your dual accomplishment of giving advice to new immigrants and advertising your services. I wish I could apply it myself!
– More power to you.
– Judith


miriam cohen
Thanks you for your well written advice. I appreciate your directness and honesty balanced by showing an understanding of an immigrants’ confusion. Kol hakavod!


Yael phillips
I had several questions about a new employment contract and Tsvi went over it and responded to all of my questions – it was incredibly useful and am now comfortable moving forward in this process. Thank you very much, this is an amazing and very helpful service!


 

Darryl Z
Well, I followed Tzvi’s advice and the situation has sorted itself out. I will get what’s owed to me – and I didn’t even have to resort to threats or a lawyer’s letter or anything else that would cause a fight.
– Thanks again, Tzvi. You really helped me avoid a difficult situation.


Darryl
Being an olah chadasha in Israel can be very scary when you’re involved in labour laws and other legal issues. You’re never sure if someone is taking you for a ride or trying to “screw” you because they think you don’t know any better. When I suspected I wasn’t getting what was coming to me, a friend sent me Voleh’s website address and suggested I find out what I’m entitled to – legally.
– So I emailed Tzvi. The email response told me I may have to wait up to a week to get an answer, which was a little disappointing, but understandable. However, I received a reply from Tzvi within 24 hours – and I’m sure it only took that long because Shabbat was in between.
– Tzvi, you really helped me clarify my situation and I am definitely going to use your advice to make sure that those responsible don’t take advantage of me.
– Thanks for all your help. You have a fantastic service here and the fact that you do this for free out of the goodness of your heart makes you a real mensch.
– This is what Tikkun Olam is really about. I’ll certainly be passing your name onto other olim I know.
– Kol HaKavod and thanks again.


Jennyfer
I had a question regarding work laws in Israel, and I was able to chat live with Zvi in a matter of seconds. He answered my question for free. Thank you for the help, Zvi.


Menuchah Levy
You were amazing. Like an angel. I’m so accustomed to needing to pay for EVERYTHING, and thought it hard to come buy people who would want to just do a favor. Thanks for checking over the work contract and pointing our those parts that needed to be changed… and with such a nice attitude about it.

– Hashem should bless you for the many good deeds you do through the service you offer.

– Sincerely,

– Menuchah


Joan
Tzvi did in three weeks, what I couldn’t do in six months. Thanks to him, my previous employer paid everything they owed me (plus additional money I didn’t know I deserved).

– He is doing an amazing mitzvah for Olim. Israel is not an easy place, and his work just makes a difference in our lives. After 2.5 years of continuous struggles with services, employers, and landlords, his help was one of the factors that made me stay in Israel


Keshet
Tzvi was incredible! Such efficient and courteous service is rare to find anywhere. My employment question was answered within 1 business day. I very much appreciate the help you provide to olim – Kol Hakavod!


Harold Berman
Tzvi is simply an amazing resource! He has helped me out several times with issues with Israeli phone companies, public utilities and government agencies. Everyone I know who has used his services has been incredibly pleased. For a newcomer who doesn’t really know the culture, can’t navigate the language on complex legal issues, and doesn’t always know where to turn – Tzvi has been a lifeline for so many olim. Thank you!!


hgoldmeier
Tzvi was very helpful letting me vent my angre at a former employer and sorting the important from unimportant issues.


Devorah
Voleh was very helpful. Tzvi took the time to speak with me on the phone about my issue right away and was also very quick in getting back to me after looking over a document. Thank you!


Sarah
Thank you so much for a speedy and helpful service. I needed my rental contract to be reviewed by a lawyer and Voleh had it back to me with comments within an hour of me sending! I appreciate the work you are doing for me and the entire oleh community.


Gary B.
Thanks so much, Tzvi, for the great help you provided me last week. After I first contacted you by email you called me back right away and were able to quickly and easily give me the advice i needed. I followed your recommendations, got all the information i needed, and can now proceed with my life in relative peace.

– Thank you so much for helping yet another oleh. It is much appreciated.


Elias Zwang
Tzvi, thank you so much for your help reading my apartment contract. As an oleh hadash, I had nobody else who could and would do this for me. You took the time, on Sukkot!, to have a look and tell me that it’s a bad contract, that the landlord is trying to cheat us. You even offered to let us come into your office and draft a normal contract. I don’t know exactly what will happen with this apartment, and I may have to ask for your help again. But I do know that your kind help certainly made me feel less alone in Israel and reminded me why I came here. I hope I can repay the favor someday.


Jonathan
Tzvi you really helped me regarding the situation we found ourselves in and prevented it from becoming much worse. Thank you so much for all your help and the wonderful job helping olim


Anonymous
Thank you for the valueable information and the lesson taught!
– I appreciate the time taken to explain to me the do’s and dont’s when buying a 2nd hand car in Israel.

THank you for reading over my lease agreement and making some suggestions as to what I should change.


Danielle Wainstein
I would like to sincerely thank Tzvi for the wonderful and generous service he provides to Olim. Upon emailing him I received a response within minutes and the entire process of reviewing my rental contract took less than two hours. I am so appreciative of his kindness and professionalism.


Rona
Once again, Tzvi has helped me. I cannot speak highly enough of his prompt, patient and professional assistance and advice which made dealing with bureaucracy and legalities in this country so much easier. Yishar koach.


Rivkah
Once again, I asked Tzvi for help in a matter, which may be titled as “making a frier out of an oleh”. He not only responded in a super timely manner, but basically hand-held me through the process of resolving this quite unpleasant case. I am very grateful to Tzvi. Kol hakavod! That’s real chessed.


Todd Edelman
I’ve been in touch with Tzvi in the past and again this week, most recently about a dispute with a client of mine. Tzvi is always quick to answer and really goes out of his way to help while making sure you understand all sides if the situation you’re in. I appreciate Tzvi’s efforts to help us Olim in this country that likes to take advantage of us so much. I would recommend Tzvi and the Voleh staff to any oleh/olah who needs legal advice.


Deena
Thank you for sharing this article. It is true that sometimes Israelis come across as loud and it is entirely possible that because it has been that way for so long that it has become acceptable. But verbal abuse in any form should not be allowed. It is deadly to relationships and the individual on the receiving end may never recover entirely.


Tal Zwecker
Very helpful over chat answered my questions, thanks!!!


mel
Thank you for an excellent service. Questions answered timeously and a real commitment to help and make things easier for the person concerned. I highly recommend this help. It can truely make a difference in your life!


Adam
Excellent, quick and fantastic legal advice. Helped review and navigate a lease in Hebrew. Thanks!


Gil
Tzvi gave me excellent advise on how to deal with my landlord. I think what he is doing is great for the community and wish him the best of luck!


C Burnham
Tzvi was a great help to me when I really had no idea what to do or where to turn. I appreciate his chessed, I don’t know what I would have done without his professional, courteous and fast service.


Gary Rosenfeld
Tzvi answered my questions in a few minutes of my emailing him. Great service.


Vanessa
Thanks to Mr. Szajnbrum I felt more confident and secure dealing with the pressures and tricks of a real estate agency, including the review and changes to the rental agreement. From feeling overwhelmed and scared to knowing my rights and the consequences of my actions, everything done promptly, calmly, undoubtedly experienced, professional and, what helps a lot, with a positive tone. This service is a blessing to olim. Thank you so very much!


Rinat
A great organisation with excellent service!
– Tzvi Szajnbrum was very helpful and with fast responses on all my questions.


Erika
Many thanks to Tzvi who acted in the most professional, fast and dedicated way and helped me to solve a situation with a phone company that I have been trying to deal with, without any result.
– I’m so grateful that I can finally put my mind and energy on other things and have him taking care of things the way he knows how to.
– A really helpful service for olim – recommending Tzvi to everyone!


Matthew Cohen
Very very helpful!
– Thank you Tzvi.
– Recommend Tzvi for any of your issues, very fast and helpful


Shoshale
Very very impressed by their service their thorough and complete dedication,and help=no matter what the situation was


Ricky Gray
If no response is received to enquiry letters from TV Licensing, an enquiry officer will call at the address to determine the licensing requirements. The aim of the visit is to enforce the law and enable TV Licensing to remove premises which do not require a TV Licence from their enquiries, to allow resources to be concentrated on those who do require one. If the enquiry officer confirms that no television receiving equipment is in use or installed to receive television programmes, this information will be noted on the TV Licensing database and further standard letters will not be sent. TV Licensing will then only contact the address occasionally to check that circumstances haven’t changed.


Leilah Martin
I want to take this opportunity to thank Tzvi and his entire staff in guiding me though a very complex dental situation which was completely resolved to my total satisfaction. It is so reassuring to know that I, as Olah Hadassah, had a place like Voleh to address my concerns. As I am an attorney in the US, Tzvi was quite articulate in educating me on Israeli law.

– Again, Tzvi, thank you every so much for all that you have done.

Tzvi, – I want to thank you for your help and time. You did a really great thing by preventing neighbors from going to court (over the obvious) and just spiraling downward. – Yehuda & Ahuva

Dear Voleh,
– Your advice is very helpful. I am grateful to Tzvi Szajnbrum and his team is doing a great service to Israel. Thank you so much.

Thanks for the article (and all the others you write). Coming from Australia where the Rule of Law is paramount, this “variable” interpretation and application of the law in Israel helps me to understand why Lawyers are sadly so needed for EVERYTHING.

– I worry about living in a place where some “rules” seem to apply more to some than to others, depending on who you know and what your circumstances are. The Rule of Law is arguably the most important component of a just and fair society – where the law is accessible and applied equally to all, consistently and in a timely way. Perhaps I’ve got it wrong, and in fact justice prevails, just on a more case by case basis by the grace of good adjudicators. Is this the case?


Chava Nebenzahl
A friend of mine referred me to Tzvi. She told me how much he helped her with her situation. I was still a bit doubtful that a stranger would help so much with legal advice for FREE. But I called Tzvi anyway. Right away he helped us with our issue! I am so grateful. He helped us get out of a situation and saved us thousands of shekels. Thank you so very much!


Devorah
As in the past, Tzvi was “there” for me, this time to cancel a rental contract. I got all my money bank, baruch HaSh-m. Tzvi provided me with a legal agreement in Hebrew to use for the cancellation of the rental contract. Tzvi responds quickly, concisely, and with the knowledge of how things work here. He is doing tremendous chessed for me and for all of us.

I can only endorse what has already been written hundreds of times on this site already. My story is not an uncommon one. I was ripped off by a mobile phone company (whose name is that of a certain citrus fruit), when they sold me an internet stick for an exhorbitant monthly fee (in addition to mobile phone contract).
– After returning from a fundraising trip from Europe (for an Israel based child poverty charity), I was presented with an outrageous bill for using the stick overseas, which I had been assured was within the contract.
– After enquiring re. legal services through the usual channels open to oleh (and after receiving little assistance) I was eventually Baruch Hashem, recommended to Zvi and Voleh through the friend of a friend. I can only emphatically endorse the glowing tributes to Tzvi and his organization on this site. He is both a Tzaddik and a Shining exemplar of REAL Jewish Values so sadly often missing in Israel and other societies and am certain that Tzvi will reap what he has sown and receive Numerous Blessings, spiritual and material, from the Creator, in whose image this benevolent exponent of Chesed, has certainly been fashioned.
– With warmest regards and Thanks,
– Paul Kaufman

As a tourist who is constantly driving rental cars–if you license is in English it is not necessary to get an international driving license. ( which is really just a English and French card saying that you do indeed have a valid driving license in whatever language it may be!


Dan
Would like to thank Tzvi, for his fast response and help in my case.
– very professional, every time in needed advice, he always was there for me!
– Would recommend to anyone!

– Thank you Tzvi!

The city is divided west-east by the Ayalon Freeway (freeway 20), which is the main artery of the city. It is best to avoid commuter traffic in and out of Tel Aviv and its surrounding cities during rush hours (Sunday to Thursday, 7:00-9:00 and 17:00-19:00); especially to be avoided is the entrance to Tel Aviv via Ayalon Freeway in morning rush hour, as it is one of the most busy freeways in the world. Also, it is important to note that Israeli drivers are considered to be rather rude and aggressive in comparison to their Western European or North American counterparts, but, The Israeli roads are modern and easy for orientation (the signposting is in English, Hebrew and Arabic).


Anonomous
As an oleh chaddash, I was not aware of my legal rights in a contractual dispute. Tzvi listened to mre carefully and was able to provide insights and guidance in ways that I had not considered before. I think he makes an excellent advocate and it is great to have him in on your side.


Galia
Thank you so much for the honest and awesome help and advices!


Moshe Kalonymus Fink
Aliyah isn’t easy for anybody. However, thanks to Tzvi Szajnbrum and Voleh it is much easier. When I contacted Mr. Szainbrum I was not expecting the immediate, sympathetic and enthusiastic response that I received. Truly amazing what this man does for complete strangers. Previous experience (in USA) had removed all hope for the legal profession from my mind. Now I see that the solution is simple, have Tzvi Szajnbrum teach the course on legal professional ethics at all US law schools. I can’t thank Tzvi enough, and hatzlocha rabbah in all that you do.

Tzvi and Ronen were prompt and concise, professional and direct, in reply to a ‘cold’ call and msg about an important matter of family law needing clarification. I was truly, pleasantly surprised by the speed of their responsive, and even more so by their willingness to help without mentioning – in fact while refusing – a fee. Thank you again and I look forward to being in touch further – and I can highly recommend them!


Benzion Freylicher
Tzvi was a great help. I was amazed at the dedication he had to my case and I really appreciated his assistance. Thank you!


David
Excellent Service.
We recommend Mr. Tzivi Szajnbrum. He supported us during rent problems and saved from real dangerous.
I really advice, if you want to rent a flat in Israel – Ask for support this lawyer.
Best regards,
– David


Olivier
I needed an urgent notarized translation of an official document. Tzvi was kind and efficient in connecting me with the relevant people and in arranging things to happen, all in less than 12 hours. I express my gratitude.


Deena

Wow. I bless you!!! I had a question about a rental, a Facebook friend recommended I contact you and you got back to me right away! In my case it was a simple answer (No, there is nothing I can do about it) but it’s an answer and knowledge is freedom.

– Thank you SO much.

O U T S T A N D I N G ! ! ! ! ! – Tzvi is the greatest! I e-mailed him and got a response within an hour. A couple of more e-mails to clarify the problems and he invited me to come into the office. He met me right on time!! (THAT is a miracle in Israel.) He made a few phone calls and looked up stuff on the web (in Hebrew, which I cannot do) and then went right to work. Within an hour he had gotten the forms I needed from the web, filled them out, and made an appointment for me at the appropriate misrad.

I could not possibly be more impressed with him.

If you have a legal, sorta’ legal, or administrative problem, Tzvi is the “go-to-guy.”- THANK YOU TZVI!

Owen
Succinct advice and fast replies. I liked the focus on thinking “smart” rather than being “right”.


Ronnie
I would like to thank Tzvi for assisting me with my lease renewal that went well. He was very quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. Good work and I recommend him.


Darryl
Dear Tzvi – Thank you so much for the advice you gave me over the phone recently. It really helped me clear up a few things and understand what my options are. – When I return from my trip to South Africa, I will make a plan to pop into your offices to continue the discussion. – The services you offer olim are really worthwhile and generous. – Thanks again. – All the best – Darryl


Ivo
Dear Tzvi Szajbrum, – I hardly can find the right words to express my deepest gratitude to – you, for your support. – Your diligence, and your determination to help people has no price. – You’re a “Mensch”, and I’m proud to count you as a loyal friend. – May G-d bless you, and your family. – Best regards, – Ivo Jacome


Deena
This is my second time using your services. Again I needed to know about a legal issue regarding my apartment lease. I wrote a detailed email and received a very helpful reply within the day. So appreciated! Thank you.

Thank you Tsvi for your very prompt reply to my enquiry which supplied me with the information I was looking for.

Gary Samuels
Tzvi, responded to my request for help immediately and did everything in his power to provide assistance with a complex civil matter – Thank you Tzvi.


The Berkman Family
Thank you Tzvi for all of your help. Our daughter, Ruth, was renting an apartment from a landlord who insisted that our payment had to a cash deposit into the landlord’s bank account. When the Israeli bank delayed cashing a check, causing the rent payment to be days late, the landlord threatened to evict our daughter on the spot, without court process. Our 19 year old daughter was forced to attend classes carrying her worldly possessions out of fear that she would be locked out of her apartment. Tzvi’s efforts stopped the lockout threats and enabled a negotiated resolution for the problem. Tzvi also did a good job in calming down our distraught daughter from whom we are literally half a world away. Thank you for everything you did and all that Voleh does.


Elahn Zetlin
Thanks for your quick help recently regarding a rental agreement. You saved me from jumping in to what would likely have been a big headache!
– For that I appreciate it.
– Elahn.


Simon
My experience of having a debt in Israel has been very serious and I had made a big mistake by ignoring the situation. Debts with banks and companies will never just ‘go-away’. Face the situation immediately and know that there are professionals out there to help. The Voleh organisation has been a lifeline for me for legal advice and to help me negotiate a settlement to reduce my debts here in Israel. This has taken some time, but has enabled me to finally pay and exit the country. Most new Olim to Israel will struggle with debt, don’t be ashamed that this has happened, you’re not alone and seek immediate professional advice.


Devorah Fineblum

Thank-you, Tzvi….
– You stopped in the middle of your vacation to write those three magical words on my maiden Israeli rental contract. Thanx to your razor-sharp edits. I can now sign a contract that begins to be fair to me, the tenant, instead of protecting only the landlord’s rights and assets. Is that so wrong?
– All gratitude…
– Deborah Fineblum


Rachel
Thank you so much for your help!
Within in a day of writing to Tzvi he had already invited me to his office and written a killer letter to the Jerusalem Water Company who were hounding me for thousands of shekels I did not owe. Until I found Tzvi I really thought the only way to solve the problem would be to pay the money for their mistake!
I cannot thank you enough for helping me, especially so quickly and professionally. I now have the confidence that I don’t just have to accept Israeli bureaucracy taking advantage of me!


Chava Ashkenazi
I have been living in Israel for 5.5 years. In my first job in Israel (which was for the same company I worked for in the US), I made the mistake of trusting my (at the time) boss about what she told me the salary would be. I asked several times to get the amount in writing, but she never gave it to me. Fast forward to my first paycheck, and the amount was 1,300 NIS less than what she had told me (and it was my word versus hers, so I was screwed). Over the 4.5 years that I worked there, I was finally able to get paid a (somewhat) living wage. I decided to leave (no room for growth and with the start I had with my boss, you can imagine that the management wasn’t exactly ideal), and was very happy when I was offered a new job in my field that I feel is a step up, and has better pay and better benefits. However, in reviewing the contract, there were a few points that (in my now 5.5 years living in Israel) I was pretty sure were not exactly legal (in regard to vacation and sick days, travel reimbursement, etc). In this situation, I don’t think that my new boss is trying to screw me; he just really doesn’t know what is correct according to Israeli law.

I had heard about Voleh years ago and recommended them to people, but had never used their services before. I decided that this was the perfect opportunity. I called Tzvi and he was very helpful. He asked me to submit my exact questions on the website, and also to e-mail him my contract so he could review it. Within 24 hours he called me back and verified that the points in question were in fact not correct according to law, as I suspected. I was so happy with his help, that I asked if I could send a donation to Voleh. He told me that Voleh does not accept donations, but he would appreciate a comment on the site. So here you are, Tzvi … thank you so much! I hope you know what a difference you and everyone at Voleh are making in the lives of us olim … every day 🙂


Tamar
I would like to thank Tzvi for his help in looking over my contract to prevent problems before moving into a situation that I would regret. I have lived in Israel for almost 10 years and always try to have someone look at my contract but it was never someone trained in rental contracts. Finally I have someone to do this free of charge, who respects promptly to me on his phone. He also gives classes to olim on the subject of rental contracts free of charge, which is also filled with valuable advice. I can’t thank Tzvi enough for giving his services to those of us here alone in the country.


Flavia
Thanks so much for your very professional and consulting service.
– we felt safe having you on our side. and we are very grateful for it.
– Very patient and helpful, definitely recommend!

I am an Olah currently getting my first degree. after taking a loan from an Israeli bank and missing partial amounts of only two payments I was sewed by the bank and treated like a criminal (instead of a struggling Olah student- which is what I am) . I was under a lot of stress and couldn’t afford a lawyer to help me sort out the problem. Luckily someone referred me to Zvi and he immediately made time in his busy schedule and met me the very same day. not only did he give me legal advice, but he also tried lifting my spirits by offering a more positive perspective on viewing my problems. He worked on the case at very late hours of the night while he could’ve been asleep in order to gets things done quickly. if that wasn’t enough, he even came into his office while he was supposed to be on vacation to help me with something urgent. Tzvi surpassed way beyond my expectations for service provided by a lawyer working free of charge. I am very grateful for his time and passion for helping Olim! I would strongly recommend his services to anyone in need. Thank you 🙂
