In Memoriam of:

Amit Cohen

Age: 23

From: Meitar

In Loving Memory of the Innocent Souls Taken Too Soon. United in peace, their light shines on in the hearts left behind. October 7, 2023, a day of sorrow, but their memories guide us toward a hopeful tomorrow.

Amit Cohen, z"l, from Meitar, was shot trying to escape from the Nova nature party.

Amid the chaos, Amir and his friends fled towards the highway. Yaniv Sudri, who tragically lost his life, tried to escape in his already full car but stopped to let them in.

According to Amit's brother, Yarden, one survivor shared that Amir forcefully helped people into the car before entering himself. He positioned himself on top of everyone, shielding them from bullets as they fled. However, upon reaching the Re'im base, Amit was unable to exit the vehicle due to his injuries. After enduring two hours of gunfire, they were eventually evacuated. The paramedic who treated Amir noted that although he remained conscious, he had suffered severe blood loss, and their efforts to save him were in vain. All passengers in the car, except for Yaniv and Amit, survived.

Amit, the fourth of five siblings, had a consistent habit of aiding others. He frequently brought new friends home, leaving his loved ones amazed at his ability to connect with so many people. He always displayed care for everyone, never speaking ill of others and maintaining a positive attitude. He lost his life while providing shelter for people from all walks of life. In honor of his memory, his loved ones are committed to continuing his path of kindness and compassion.
