In Memoriam of:

Ben Mizrahi

Age: 22

From: Vancouver

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.

Ben Mizrahi, z"l, was born in Vancouver and later made aliyah to Israel. He used to serve as medic in the IDF. Ben was murdered at the Nova festival while using his medic skills to treat the wounded. 

Ben immigrated to Israel after high school and immediately joined the IDF. He had finished his service and was planning to enter the real-estate field in Israel.


He had two younger sisters who had also made aliyah. His parents flew to Israel immediately after news broke of the terrible attack, but were told that their son had been killed only once they had arrived. His funeral was in Israel, on October 11.


According to Ben's friend: “He was always the first one to start a dance. He could connect with anyone — no matter what age or background. He was all of our parents’ favorite friend, and was a son every parent could only dream about.”
