Then, almost a decade after they signed a symbolic contract, Hadas received an email from Sofiya.
“I think she knew it was her only ticket out, and luckily she grabbed the opportunity with both hands,” said Hadas.
She had only been at the bar for two weeks when Hadas walked in.
Marzipan Flowers tells the story of Hadas Regal, a 48-year-old woman living on a kibbutz in southern Israel.
“Some of my friends and family asked me why she was taking so long,” recalls Hadas.
Hadas made her sign a contract, which he wrote down on a piece of paper.
“All I could think of was how I would love to give her the money to get out of this hell hole,” said Hadas.
Hadas, whose archeological expedition camped at that small tiny town for the night, decided to check out the only bar in the area.
At her graduation ceremony, Hadas surprised her with a speech.
