In Memoriam of:

Amit Levy

Age: 19

From: Holon

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 Levy, 22, from Holon, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

She is survived by her father, Lior, her twin sister Shani and younger brother, Omri. Her mother, Dana, died when she was a toddler. Amit was buried on October 10 in Holon.

Her twin Shani attended the rave alongside Amit and was shot three times but managed to survive and recuperate following surgery. Two other friends of the sisters, Inbar Shemtov and Shir Georgy, were also slain alongside Amit.

According to a eulogy on the Holon municipal site, Amit attended the Kiryat Sharet High School and then enlisted in the IDF and served in a combat unit stationed in the Jordan Valley, later also serving in reserve duty.

Amit and Shani had been saving up money to go on an extended trip around South America and had already purchased tickets slated to depart on December 17, according to a local news site.

Her friend, Noam Bar Tal, wrote on Instagram of their memories together: “Laughing with you until we can’t breathe, dancing with you until we can’t stand on our legs, speaking with you for hours without noticing that time has passed.”

She used to imagine, she wrote, “sitting together with you on the couch at age 90 and smoking a joint and reminiscing about all of our memories from our lives together. Dreaming with you about the future. We’ve been friends as long as I can remember, and I don’t know what my life is like without you.”

In December, Shani posted a tribute on social media to “my twin sister, my best friend.”

“The most considerate, most charismatic and most gentle girl,” she wrote. “You brought only good to the world my angel. An incredible girl whose unique beauty and smile can be seen from afar, and whose joy for life will stay with me forever. You were too good for this world. I was privileged to be your twin sister for 22.6 years in which we were inseparable, I got to experience absolutely everything with you, only twins will understand this crazy connection.”

Shani recalls: “Being together with you until your very last breath, I saw you fight and not give up until it was too much, until your strength ran out, until your gentle and pure soul couldn’t take it anymore.”

She wrote, “I am choosing to believe that things are good for you and that you and Mom are together, catching up in the highest spot in heaven. I know I have the highest protection possible, nothing can break us, Amiti! You and I know that better than anyone.”

“A whole life I experienced with you,” Shani continued. “And a whole life is beginning without you. You’ve left a hole in my heart in the shape of you. You’ll accompany me always, in every step and every breath. Everything you didn’t get to do, my love, I promise you, that I will live your life as the person who knew you best in the world!”
