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.

Carol Siman Tov, z"l, originally from Pennsylvania, lived in Kibbutz Nir Oz. She was murdered on October 7th in her home along with her dog. Other members of her family were also murdered that day: her son Jonathan (Johnny), her daughter-in-law Tamar and their three children - the twins Arbel and Shahar (6) and Omar (4).

Carol immigrated to Israel from the USA at the age of 20, lived a simple family life in the pastoral kibbutz and before she retired she worked as a nurse. It is said that she was a sign of free love and resilience and spread love, hugs and smiles to everyone in abundance.
