In Memoriam of:

Asaf Faber

Age: 23

From: Kibbutz Re'im

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.

Asaf Faber, z"l, from Kibbutz Re'im was murdered in his hometown. Assaf fought fiercely against Hamas terrorists in his room in the youth neighborhood with an axe. He managed to escape, but at the end of a hard battle he was murdered. For 24 hours his family did not know what had become of his fate, turned to the army and everyone who could, in the groups of young people they heard desperate cries for help. His body was discovered on the grass next to the factory in Kibbutz. He has been shot. Assaf is a talented musician, a man of nature, of creation, of people.

That Saturday he was excited about the show of Bruno Mars in Park Hayarkon that he was supposed to go to. In his parents' house there was a painting of an Israeli girl and a Palestinian girl hanging and underneath it a pink Mela Peace. After October 7, his father Geo uploaded on his Facebook a post that his daughter wrote with pictures of the burnt house, or what's left of it:

"No painting, no peace." The Israeli girl has grown up, she doesn't have a brother. He was murdered by terrorists. The Palestinian girl is growing up. Her brother is apparently a terrorist.

Geo wrote: "For 23 years I let the Assaf think freely, speak freely, without borders. 23 years I've been looking at Assaf. He never disappoints me. 23 years Asaf filled my life with joy. I felt proud to be his father. I thank him, that he was my beloved son. Happiness ended in great violence, but when I look at Assaf's friends, on you, I get hope that I will find my way back to being human.

His sister Noam wrote: "My Espi, my little brother, my beloved. I can't believe this is the reality. This is my worst nightmare, this is my biggest fear. I can't believe this is real, I can't imagine my life without you. You were the most precious thing in the world to me. I think of you and my body aches, I can't breath; my soul is shattered. Aspie, I never want to wake up in the morning that you are not here with us. It hurts I'm falling apart. Aspie, i just want to hug you to feel you. I would give everything away. I'm so sorry, Aspi, how did I not protect you, how did i not keep you. i am so so so sorry. Aspie, you are the most talented, beautiful, strong, successful and good child there was and will be in this world. You really have golden hands and a golden heart."
