Pavia is an Israeli disciple of Yeshua-Jesus the Redeemer. Born in Romania to Jewish holocaust survivors, she came to faith in the Jewish Messiah in Jerusalem in 1979.
In 1988, together with her husband and their two children, they moved to England after she had completed her degree in Hebrew Language and History of the Jews (with Hons) at the University of Haifa.
Since then, Pavia has also completed a BSc (Hons) and an MEd.
An important part of Pavia’s labour in Christ is to be an intercessor – after the example of her namesake, Esther Hadassa.
